Williams & Co Kitchen
Born and bred in Dunedin, growing up in a family of artists you would think I would have followed in the footsteps of my Grandfather and Dad with a paint brush in my hand. I guess I got the artistic genes in a way when I discovered my passion for cake decorating after having two children. Every birthday of theirs that went by I got more and more adventurous until Sugar High Cakes was born. After 10 years of making them out of my small kitchen at home I finally decided to make a go of it. A real go of it, jumped in the deep end, and found my wee shop in Mailer Street. This brought me to changing the name to something a little more personal and Williams & Co Kitchen came to light. Now following my dream you can visit me at 13 Mailer Street, Mornington where I would love to chat about ordering your dream wedding or celebration cake.

Spit & Polish Media Video Production Dunedin
These days I live and breathe digital media – it’s now my full time job. In recent years I have produced hundreds of videos, from weddings, event coverage, educational, corporate, promotional – all presenting different challenges and allowing me to expand my skills as a filmmaker. I thrive on the challenge of new projects and always take the approach to do something a little different than everything else out there. Instead of playing it safe and getting the shots to get the job done I like to take risks and go for those one or two extra special shots that people remember. Thinking big to tell stories that inspire is the philosophy that underpins my work.

Take us on this adventure with you. Your wedding, your elopement, your engagement, your anniversary, your weekly date. Let’s head to the hills so we can declare your love from the mountaintops, or up to that rooftop so you can shout it to the skyline. Love is a journey that deserves to be documented, especially the undeniable, unconditional love between two people.

And it’s that love that we’re here to capture. That love that you’ve found, nourished and committed to making last forever.
