Worlds first selfie wedding

Worlds First Selfie Wedding

What a whirlwind week! The release of our worlds first selfie wedding photos on the Today Show last Monday has sparked interest around the world and I am proud as punch of my hubby and his amazing photographic skill.

We just wanted a stress free wedding and could think of nothing better than to be high on a mountain in a beautiful part of the world – Queenstown New Zealand.

The lovely journalists at the Today Show thought it was a fantastic story given that Adrian (my husband) took all the photos himself.  The researching and planning of how to do it and the practice was a lot of hard work, but the results were stunning.  We do travel together to beautiful spots for photography quite often, so this was just another really meaningful adventure!

Here are a couple behind the scenes shots of filming with the delightful Aislin Kriukelis who was the consummate professional. My knees were shaking and I swear I could hear the quiver in my voice – luckily they cut that part out!

Then we received a call from ABC 612 Radio and next thing we know we are in the studio with the lovely Rebecca Levingston having a chat about why and how we photographed the worlds first selfie wedding. Wouldn’t be complete without a selfie!


Adrian also did an interview for the ABC Open website on technical details of the photography and how he actually did what he did and the equipment he used.

As for me, I am just in awe of the way Adrian captured the amazing scenery.  How he made me look good (certain angles and all that, it’s an art I tell you!) How he had all these ideas for different shots and what he wanted to capture. The colour in the flowers, sunlight through the forest, our joy on the day, all from in front of the camera instead of behind it!

Daily Mail

So then we did a phone interview with the Daily Mail and that kind of spread like wildfire a little bit. See the article here and the video here.

Now we have found it has appeared on sites in the US, UK, Hong Kong, Greece, Turkey Indonesia and one of the ones we love is our story on The Stir/Cafe Moms where she has perfectly captured the vibe behind the whole thing.

While this attention is surprising and fun while it lasts, the best part is I have found the man of my dreams who loves me back (always helpful!) He happens to have an amazing photographic talent and captured our wedding day in such a stunning way, that we will treasure forever. We plan to continue to travel together to beautiful parts of the world and just enjoy life.

Love & fairy tales,
