Time travel competition – Hamilton to Bristol

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Tomorrow I leave NZ to attend my good mate’s wedding in the UK on Friday May 28th. Whenever I travel I always note the ‘door to door’ time (always have), i.e. just how long does it take to travel somewhere?

We do great expensive prizes and is likely to be a flash dinner for 2, unless one of our younger Facebook fans wins then it will be 2kg of chocolate per month for life!

Here’s a few snippets of my itinerary to help you:

3pm – Leave Hamilton (clock starts ticking here)

5.15pm – See a new wedding client in Auckland City

7pm – See a new wedding client at Auckland Airport

11.15pm – Board NZ39

2.35pm Friday 21st UK time – Arrive at London Heathrow

?????? – Arrive at my mates house in Bristol

I realise there could be a whole heap of problems that I could encounter on my travels, I hope not but all you need to do is go back to our one2one facebook and put your time down in hours and minutes, i.e. 25 hours and 33 minutes.  Guesses will stop when I put the actual time down on Facebook.  The competition is open to anyone, just add yourself as a friend.

Ciao for now, Steve

Gracehill Winery Wedding – Robynne & Greg

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

A wedding with all 4 seasons in one day.

On Saturday I headed to Auckland to photograph Robynne and Greg’s wedding. Since June last year, I have completed 44 weddings and not one has been wet, not one, but I thought my luck was running out. We saw every weather condition going and lady luck played her part for Robynne and Greg, the sun came out just at the right time for their ceremony at Gracehill Winery, Auckland.

The day began in central Auckland and due to a tremendous downpour we decided to do a few photos in Auckland and engineer the moment when they would see each other for the first time. Greg’s Best Man was his son Jonathan, what a wonderful privilege for any son.

I had a great day guys, thanks so much for dinner your images have been posted.


A small issue of teaching a son how to tie a tie

Kath did a great job getting Robynne ready

This was the moment the sun came out, hallelujah

What a wonderful stairwell

And what a dance these tow put on, I did not know they could both dance – eek!
