Michelle Davies Photography

Like love, my photography is about embracing the simple moments and appreciating the uniqueness of a person – the quirks – to develop something that isn’t perfectly posed or manufactured, but real.
Now, with six year’s professional experience and an extensive portraiture portfolio, I can’t imagine a life away from the lens.
And, honestly, even if I was to miraculously win the lottery and no longer needed income, I’d still be out there with my camera in my hand, capturing the people and subjects that continue to inspire me every day.

Patricia Robbie – Celebrant

It is a great feeling to be a part of someones special day.
For all the weddings I preform I enjoy working with the couple to get it just right. It's all about them and what they want, each love story is unique to each couple. I enjoy a relaxed yet slightly formal environment and I believe that creating a beautiful, personalised and engaging ceremony is important.
Choosing the right celebrant really starts your perfect day in the right way. Having grown up in Kapiti myself I love being here for Kapiti based couples. We are spoiled for venues out here on the Kapiti Coast. I am a real people person and love that I am building this career as a celebrant.

I would love to hear from you to discuss your day if you think we would be a good fit.
I can also offer MC services. With a background in events and public speaking I feel I have found a real passion in this job and wouldn't want to be doing anything else. It really brightens my day being involved with something so special - why wouldn't it?

Your ceremony should be the way you want it to be. My wish is to ensure that you have your needs and personalities reflected in your ceremony and that the preparation time is straightforward and problem free.
If you are travelling to New Zealand from overseas for your wedding, I can help you with the processes needed to ensure you meet the legal requirements, as well as helping with your ceremony.

Kapiti Wedding Celebrant I look forward to spending time working with you to make this special day as memorable as it should be.

Mel Waite Photography

I am a member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography and specialise in wedding photography.
I am a native of Wellington, New Zealand, though I have lived abroad and travelled extensively. I have experience in a range of different photographic disciplines. In addition to having studied photography, I have experience in design and theatre production, all of which I like to draw on when photographing a wedding, be it a small back garden ceremony or coverage of a 3 day wedding celebration. I work using a mix of natural and artificial light to help make you look your best and pride myself on not only getting the best shots I can but also making sure you enjoy the experience.
My style is relaxed with a focus on bringing out the personality of the subject and the feeling of the day. I also like to focus on the details that make your wedding day unique. Every wedding is different and special to the couple getting married. Therefore it’s important to have the right photographer for you, someone who is flexible and able to incorporate their own ideas and experience with your ideas and needs to capture the memories that last a lifetime.
