New Zealand Wedding Magazine Feature

It began as a rainy Friday in Southland, but this didn’t dampen any spirits- as the clouds opened up to bring bright skies and a brilliant sunset. The wedding was beautiful, a summer soiree set in a stunning marquee.

Erin was over the moon to shoot one of her favourite couples on their special day- her brother Tom, and now sister-in-law, Jess (you can say she’s a little biased)!  We were even more excited to have their wedding featured in the Winter17 edition of New Zealand Weddings Magazine.

Acorn Soy Candles

Erin may have a slight obsession with scented soy candles, and she’ll be the first to admit that. A visit to the studio will give this away, as the tables are adorned with them and the space smells amazing! One day, she turned the obsession into an action, and decided to have a go making one herself. Next minute, the whole studio was full of jars, wicks, sticks and soy. And just like that, The Acorn Soy Candle was born.

Each candle is hand-poured by Erin. The scents are her favourites, Vanilla and French Pear. Made from soybeans, they are a natural choice that burn cleaner than other candles. With a slower burning time, and cooler burning temperature, they last longer and the scents are stronger.

Framing & Prints

We believe one of the best ways to enjoy a photograph is in the print. Some may say it’s old fashioned, but we say it’s a timeless classic. Can you remember flipping through albums of your grandparents and parents ‘when they were young’? Seeing how beautiful your own mother looked on her wedding day? Photographs allow you to connect with old memories, or understand a time before yours. They’re really something special.

We encourage you to pick your favourites, take them off the USB, and turn them into some prints. They are honestly works of art, and even more special and sentimental as you feature in them! We can custom print to any size- so fill an album and some frames, or a whole wall- we know they will remind and inspire you daily. Prints also make wonderful gifts and thank-yous for your nearest and dearest.

Your photographs are printed on heavy, archival matte paper that are proven to stand the test of time. Colours are true to their edits, and look even more epic in the print! Hang them as is, or have them framed in the minimal, simplistic Acorn aesthetic.

We have a passion for our prints, and know these are high quality, lasting prints that are fit for any gallery or museum. We know an Acorn Print will last forever.

Acorn Albums

Having a wedding album is having that chapter of your love story in the flesh. It serves as a tangible reminder of your love, your journey, your future and your forever.

How special would it be, to have this story in your hands, ready to remember and share at any moment. Your wedding album is for you to reflect and reminisce on that ‘one day’, where you told each other and everyone else that you love each other, and are each other’s one-in-a-billion. Your wedding album is for those cosy nights on the couch, or at the end of a dinner party, for the curious grandchild or sentimental parent. It is to be shared with your nearest and dearest.  

Your love story will be crafted into a gorgeous, 10x10 inch leather-bound album, made with utmost attention and care. Choose from a range of genuine leathers and colours, and between foiling or embossing the cover. Every spread is carefully curated by Erin to reflect your relationship and your wedding day, so when you look through the pages, you can’t help but smile. Every page is carefully handmade and invisible binding ensures that there are no awkward fold or creases. Your photos will be seamless and really shine.
