From Katie Grant PhotographyRefined bohemian is a hard style to pull off…but that’s just what Louise and Lars successfully did in their extremely elegant, slightly bohemian, relaxed (yet formal) destination wedding on Waiheke Island. With a hint of Tuscan and a touch of Boho-Chic, this wedding was a visual feast. Lengths of lush olive branches lined the tables and walls of the venue, as well as starring in the dainty floral bouquet, boutonnieres and sweet floral crowns by Leaf & Honey. Louise was stunning in her Rue De Seine boho wedding gown and was complimented perfectly by a formally clad Lars in his dashing tux. The ceremony stole the show as the couple said their vows in front of a stunning backdrop of wild New Zealand islands and bays. It was a glorious, sunshine filled day that reflected the natural beauty and wonder of Waiheke Island…from it’s crystal blue bays to its wild, rolling hills- it is one of the most picturesque places in the world.

From Wonder EventsNikki & Aran are two people crazy in love. They got engaged on Christmas Day and were SO bursting with wanting to get married that they pulled out all the stops and 10 weeks later were standing on top of a hill, on beautiful Waiheke Island celebrating their wedding with all of their loved ones. Just to add to dramatic effect there was even a wild little storm that happened perfectly on cue when all the guests were tucked up inside the marquee enjoying their meals.

We opted for a simple neutral colour palette of whites and greens down two long tables. Guest numbers were around 65 people so naturally this created an intimate setting. A light wood runner anchored the florals in a slightly more contemporary way that worked in well with the rustic Tuscan setting. Menus were printed on crisp white linen napkins which sat atop glass beaded chargers complemented by crystal glassware and rose gold cutlery. A large polystyrene N&A stood tall on the dancefloor with soft fabric draping and fairy lights a focal point of the ceiling.

After Months of Gardening + TLC, This At-Home Wedding Was a Dream Come True

Time to break out the bubbly, because this classic garden inspired affair is worth toasting to.

I mean – talk about styled soulmates! With Maria Lamb Photography behind the lens snapping up every moment of sentiment this is one gallery that we’re going to cherish for years to come.

From The Bride…Our wedding was a dream. It was such an amazing feeling seeing everything come together exactly as we’d envisioned. Starting from scratch, hours of hard work and planning were put in – months of gardening, late nights assembling invitations, planning the menu, writing vows, choosing the music and countless other projects done by Egan, Amelia and their family and friends.

The ceremony was perfectly imperfect, laughter and tears all the way through and a surprise live performance of our favorite song organized by the Maid of Honor.

The reception was held at Amelia’s family home where she grew up, a dream her mother always had of a family wedding at the property. The skies opened up just as we all sat down to eat, but that didn’t stop us having our first dance in the rain, barefoot and carefree, and much to our surprise, all of our guests joining in too! We have never experienced such joy and elation as we did in that moment. It’s hard to describe how much love and emotion was felt on the day by everyone but it was something truly special that will never be forgotten. The guests stayed over in tipi’s spotted amongst the trees and the celebrations continued over the weekend with a bbq the following day before the couple disappeared off to Bali for ten days of absolute bliss.
