The Heather & Doug Records

1) Can you tell us a little bit about your business and what you bring to the wedding scene?

We are a married duo who live for fun, love and the colour of this world. This is what we bring to our images and each wedding as photographers! We absolutely love to get to know our couples during the course of their planning, we find this is the best way to be able to celebrate with them during their big day.

2) What are you most looking forward to at the Christchurch Wedding Fair in April?

Definitely looking forward to presenting our style at Cossars and getting to meet and engage personally with couples who are currently planning their wedding.

3) What sets this Wedding Fair apart from other wedding showcase events you’ve attended?

We love the set up and style of Cossars Wineshed and being given the chance to chat with people planning their weddings on a more personal basis.

4) How do you personally hope to inspire Christchurch brides-to-be for their up-coming weddings?

As in keeping with our own style, we would love to inject our love of colour and fun into their thoughts and for them to see that their wedding day doesn’t just have to be documentation but a work of art to treasure forever.

5) Can you reveal a little about what we can expect to see from you at the Christchurch Wedding Fair? 

Big smiles, amazing welcoming attitudes, the chance to show off our recent re-branding – and Blondie (our cute little Mini) might even make an appearance!

6) Finally, what is your new favourite wedding trend to enter the 2016 season? 

Magical Evening/Night-time Photos… This is something we’ve been doing for years, but what we love and encourage about night-time photos is that last bit of photography where the couple are made a fuss over – it gives them some one-on-one time together in the midst of a busy day and they receive an incredibly magical result to top off the day that they’ve been looking forward to for such a long time. We always aim to capture all the excitement that has gone into planning their day into one magical photo.

1) Can you tell us a little bit about your business and what you bring to the wedding scene?

I am a Christchurch-based wedding celebrant. This is my first wedding season and I am truly loving it. I have been involved in the wedding scene on and off for a number of years. With my two young boys growing up it was time for mum to follow her dream. My style is relaxed and friendly. I love helping people create their perfect day and feel it is an honour to be involved.

2) What are you most looking forward to at the Christchurch Wedding Fair in April?

I am really excited to be part of such a divine event. I am looking forward to meeting other professionals in the industry but mostly am looking forward to meeting all the lovely, glowing brides and grooms to be!

3) What sets this Wedding Fair apart from other wedding showcase events you’ve attended?

This is a new event for me but I’m really excited to be a part of such a boutique event with some amazing people in  the industry. Not to mention the beautiful venue!

4) How do you personally hope to inspire Christchurch brides-to-be for their up-coming weddings?

With a friendly face and a few wise words…. :-)

5) Can you reveal a little about what we can expect to see from you at the Christchurch Wedding Fair?

As a celebrant I am there to offer advice and any little tips that I can, with a smiley face of course.

6) Finally, what is your new favourite wedding trend to enter the 2016 season? 

I have loved seeing rustic, romantic styles with wild flowers, soft pinks and navy!
