Quick Tip: The Faux Glow, Perfected


Even if you consider yourself to be a self-tanning aficionado, doing a trial run at least a week in advance of your Big Day is an absolute must. Before the main event, make sure your entire body has been thoroughly exfoliated, and that any necessary hair removal has taken place at least 12 hours prior, before applying self-tanner, and you’re practically guaranteed a gorgeous, even glow!

Lavish, Queenstown, New Zealand Wedding Film

Grab a tissue — this one will definitely pull at your heartstrings. Sunshine Wedding Film captured every special moment of this local couple’s wedding just outside of Queensland, Australia, and it’s absolute perfection. From expansive shots of the idyllic pastoral countryside to tender, emotional moments between the bride and groom, it’s everything we dream a wedding would be.


From Sunshine Wedding FilmsEmily and Scott are a local couple, which was a bit of a treat as most of the weddings we film are with couples from overseas or out-of-town. Their wedding was held at an exclusive lodge just out of Queenstown. It was clear from the beginning that it would be a big, lavish celebratory affair but with lots of thoughtful details included by Emily. Like a bouncy castle for the kids, a high tea party, catering from their friends Botswana Butchery (restaurant) and the biggest bucket full of champagne we’ve seen.

Emily and her bridemaids got ready at Millbrook Resort and Scott got ready at his Best Man’s house around the corner at Lake Hayes. With a beautiful recital of a Robbie Burns poem by Emily’s dad, an emotional groom as his bride walked up the aisle and a romantic, impromptu text before the ‘I do’s’ bringing a tear to the eye, this film definitely is one to make you smile.

Ethereal New Zealand Engagement

With their summer wedding on the horizon, this duo set out for one gorgeous mini-moon. The destination? The Bride’s native country of  New Zealand.  Surrounded by beautiful mountains whilst sharing sweet kisses by the sea,  Coco Tran snapped up one gallery that will have you dreaming of far away lands. See it all right here!

From Coco Tran This couple is tying the knot this summer, and have decided to take their honeymoon before their wedding. The couple planned a New Zealand get away because the bride grew up there as a child. Their engagement session was amongst the beautiful mountains and sea of New Zealand. What a dream come true for a photographer!
