In 1984 Ron Woolf photographed Cathy and Rubens Wedding, and in 2019 Simon Woolf photographed Cathy and Ruben’s son, also Ruben, and his wife Laura’s Wedding. Between 1984 and 2019 a lot has happened in the world of Wedding Photography. What hasn’t changed is that Woolf Photography are still leading the way with both Traditional and Contemporary Wedding Photography.

Laura and Ruben were married at Aston Norwood Gardens at the foot of The Rimutaka Hill. It was a stunning occasion which had family fun warmth and spontaneity. Our wedding party were totally in sync, and out to have a great time, which was achieved with ease.

It was great to see Kathy and Amanda, from Hair There and Everywhere, who did lovely job (as always) with Laura’s Hair and Make up, while Belinda and Veronica and the team at Aston Norwood Gardens absolutely nailed the Ceremony and Reception big time.

Aletia and Richard's Wedding.

What a day it was when Aletia and Richard were married at Paper Road Vineyard in The Wairarapa.

This was an occasion where Family and Friends, could relax, have fun and celebrate a Aletia and Ricahrd's Big Day.

Richard, having a lovingly restoring an old Diesel Locomotive, was able to use it to carry the wedding guest to and from what was a stunning location. The whole day was seamless, and totally enjoyable, with the weather certainly assisting things. Bianca and I were quite a team in capturing a superb array of photos to record the day.

Ruby and Zane came back to Wellington from Sydney to get married. While they had the perfect wedding, the weather did not behave at all!  It did not really matter, as Family Friends, and Fun were the order of the day.  As the group dodged rain showers, and wind changes,  some gorgeous photos were nailed. Simon and the wedding party arrived at The Lady Norwood Rose Gardens in good time, and on a adrenalin high, to enjoy a superb reception.  It was one of those days which was totally streamlined and spontaneous, and where everyone involved had just the best time.

" I was totally rapt to be able to capture such a wonderful array of great moments. Ruby and Zane, and their entire wedding party were totally in sync, and while we did have weather challenges, that was a big part of the fun that we had on the day."
