SOPHIE + MATT - REAL WAIHEKE WEDDING

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.

HONEYMOON BAY- BEACHSIDE WEDDING

The wedding was bound to be magnificent. From the moment I met these two, I knew that their lovely relaxed vibe matched with Amy's exquisite style mixed with some pretty awesome suppliers, was all a recipe for a sensational wedding. Honeymoon Bay was the selected location, and is one of Waiheke's latest private property venues to open it's doors to private events, and what a venue! Debuting with this wonderful occasion, this beachfront property offered a wonderful setting for a seaside ceremony and marquee reception to follow. There were a number of stand out elements that made this wedding so unique, so it's hard to know where to start. Special mention must go to the super talented Kelly from Blush, for her absolutely incredible florals and styling- epic to say the least! These images from we are bubblerock are still blowing me away, world class!  It's a rare thing to find an historical homestead of this nature, with absolute beachfront frontage, a vineyard, olive grove, a marquee lawn and private beach. We are completely in love with this venue, and look forward to more gorgeous events at Honeymoon Bay.

A VINTAGE PICNIC

Had SO much fun putting together Mallari and Brent's elopement on Waiheke. Following a beautiful intimate ceremony at Delamore Lodge, a slice of decadent wedding cake and a few glasses of Champagne, these two headed off to the beach for the 'trash the dress' photo shoot. It was a gorgeous day on the Island, and we arranged access to a sweet seaside chalet for a quick change, then it was off to a secret location for the gourmet Vintage picnic!

A gourmet picnic, fine wines, soaked in the afternoon sun and all set on a Waiheke coastal hillside. It can't get much better than this! These two totally in love newlyweds experienced, what I believe to be, some of the most amazing locations on the Island. Having the opportunity to create their dream day for them, right down to the detail, along with being there for the most part, was so special- I'll never forget it! And it didn't stop here, an exquisite private dinner was awaiting them back at Delamore Lodge, where they enjoyed the warm glow of the setting sun, toasting their new marriage and passing the rest of their evening together as husband and wife.
