Romantic Backyard Wedding

I love backyard weddings… especially ones as effortlessly cool and romantic as this pretty day captured by Mary Sylvia Photography.  Because this isn’t just any backyard affair, it’s a rustic meets romantic party filled with gorgeous florals from The Piccadilly Flower Company, beautiful lavender and purple hues and sooo much pretty.  See it all right here.

From Mary Sylvia PhotographyZoe and Steve were married on Zoe’s parents’ property, in the hills of the wine region in Martinborough, New Zealand.

They worked carefully from England to plan their wedding from afar, and brought together an amazing day full of beautiful details.

The property had a gorgeous little pond, covered in tiny red flowers, and Zoe was even game to get in an old rowing boat in her wedding dress!

Romantic Beach Bridal Inspiration

Take a breathtaking New Zealand beach and add in some awe-inspiring images from Caron Nicole Photography and we call that the perfect way to wrap up the week.  It’s crashing waves meets a stunning DIY bouquet meets the magical beauty skills of Philippa Mae Makeup Artist… and it’s all sitting pretty in a full gallery of lovely.  I mentioned this was the perfect way to wrap up the week, right?  See it all here.

Yacht Club

From Caron Nicole Photography… I wanted to capture the cool tones of low tide on the beach besides the softness of a delicately flowing dress. The flowers were created by scavenging a bouquet out of what was in season in Auckland, New Zealand at that time and it just so happens that there was quite a lot of plum and deep reds. It all came together in a straight from the back garden look. We then headed down to the beach, a short walk from the garden where we enjoyed the lovely sunset. The soft and flowing dress looked absolutely amazing catching the breeze on the French Bay beach in Titirangi, New Zealand.
