Shaken and Stirred Weddings

We are good friends who have bonded over many margaritas whilst chatting non-stop wedding talk. Over years in the wedding industry we’ve worked on hundreds of weddings of all shapes and sizes, and our favourite weddings are those where couples have let their personalities shine through.

From writing your own wedding vows and taking shots of tequila with your witnesses, to bright red wedding dresses and mountain top photo shoots, we embrace and encourage the unique and offbeat.

So, we decided to combine forces and offer you the opportunity to experience the wedding day you’ve always wanted, or maybe didn’t even know you could have!

With a focus on micro-weddings for just you two or with up to 30 guests, we do all the work, coordinate your fun, friendly and professional wedding crew, and keep your glasses topped up throughout!


Kellie is one of the ladies behind the lens who will capture your amazing Queenstown wedding day photos. Originally from Canada, Kellie has made New Zealand her home with hubby Abe since 2012.

She’s passionate about sustainability, adores her doggos Mango and Bay, collects tattoos and loves to travel. Kellie is also a keen stargazer and enjoys astro photography under the stars.

Kellie is supremely talented at putting together all the parts of your wedding or elopement into a stress free dream of a day - she is the ultimate wedding mixologist!

Her favourite cocktail is anything with gin, but she will never turn down a decent margarita!
