Kate & Mark - Wedding Highlights

Kate & Mark were married on 22nd January 2011 at Erskine in Island Bay. This is one of our favourite locations as the scenery is just stunning - the outside has a historic almost "haunted" look, but the chapel is so bright and welcoming. The gardens and surrounding areas provide excellent photo opportunities and the reception area is grand and majestic.

The following Cinematic Highlights for Kate & Mark shows the varied emotions throughout the day; their tearful vows, the fun and laughter they shared during their photoshoot, and the cherished moments with their family & friends. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.

100 Pipers Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Concert

Pipers and Drummers from around New Zealand used their musical talents to benefit those in need after last Tuesday’s earthquake in Christchurch.  

Due to the recent tragedy which has affected many in the Canterbury region, the Royal New Zealand Pipe Band Association have cancelled the New Zealand and South Pacific Pipe Band Championships which were to be held in Timaru during the weekend of 5/6th March 2011.

Around 1500 bandspeople were set to compete in the Championships, which are the highlight of the pipe band calendar in New Zealand.  Wellington, Red Hackle, Paraparaumu and Scots College, combined with the Manawatu Scottish Pipe Band and reigning New Zealand champions, the Auckland and District Pipe Band, rallied together to organise a fundraising concert for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal that was held in the Capital on Saturday 5th. 

The concert, 100 Pipers, was an evening of pipe band music, showcasing the combined talents of six bands who are on the top of their game after months of preparation for the Championships. Special guests made an appearance and the concert had something for everyone. Crystal Clear Productions was proud to have been asked to film the event.

A DVD will shortly be on sale on our web site at and the proceeds will go to the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal Fund.
