We met in 2008 in St. Augustine, Florida when we were introduced by a mutual friend and we started darting shortly afterwards. I’m a wedding photographer and have a passion for all things literature and history, but of course my true passion is our family.
“I used flowers in a mix of soft pastel and earthy tones to create a natural bouquet that was romantic and unstructured and that blended with it’s surroundings”. This bouquet has a beautiful mix of Peonies, antique lissianthus, queen annes lace, roses, olive leaf, geranium, hebe & helleborus.

I grew up with the punk, New Romantic movement, looking at the back of a record or an old copy of The Face and going, how do I get that look? It didn’t exist here, so I grew up finding things in op shops and remodelling them. I was a menswear buyer at Zambesi for five years, which introduced me to luxury brands like Helmut Lang, Martin Margiela and Dries Van Noten, who were doing high fashion, but everything came from tailoring. I became fixated on that craft and process.

We both grew up in Christchurch and met while on a snowboarding camp when we were 15 years old. I was instantly attracted to this handsome, tall, stylish and funny boy, so at the end of the camp, I wrote my landline number on a piece of paper and gave it to Jake. The following Friday he picked me up after school in his Kermit-the-Frog green Toyota, and that was that!
