Introducing the amazing Sophie + Matt. What an incredible duo, Sophie was one of the most gracious brides I've ever met, and not only did these guys look radiant and relaxed during the whole day, they also happened to have a baby in tow! Little Zach was such a delight throughout, and what a cutie! These guys had great style, and I knew this early on when they told me they had booked in Heidi and Ryan of Forged in the North, who just happen to be some of our all time favourite photographers, ever! And look at these incredible photos, these guys nailed it! We are also excited to say they'll be back in NZ again next Summer, wahoo!
The day started off with two fabulous local favourites, hair stylist Jules of Hair on Waiheke and Charlotte from Island Beauty, helping Sophie and her maids get ready in one of the Island's incredible Architecturally designed properties. Our good friends at Wildflower provided the wild and whimsical blooms and foliage for the day. The chosen setting for the wedding was The Goldie Room, with a hilltop ceremony followed by a candlelit reception. With Matt being Canadian, and a good portion of the guests flying in, it became a wonderful occasion to showcase some rather amazing New Zealand landscapes, with this coastal vineyard location and native bush surrounds, not the mention the fine Waiheke wine and food. With MixIt DJ behind the decks, everyone was soon on the dance floor, with some romantic evening dancing outside under a festoon lit evening sky was a must! The whole day was joyous in every way, and we just wished to say a big congratulations to this amazing couple, it was such a pleasure to meet you both, and work with you in creating your special day.
