Bohemian Inspired Backyard Wedding at Cheltenham Beach

You’ll want to sit down for this one ladies and gents. Why you ask?  Because with the help of Red Creative this couple took wedding style up a notch. With their boho-gypsy vibe and gorgeous details, every image snapped up by David St George will make you want to stop and stay awhile. See them here.


From Red CreativeFrom the moment Richard, Jessie and her mum first described their dream for the wedding we were excited. We knew it would be personal, intimate, and loads of fun. Together we planned the wedding to be a progressive event with the guests taken on a journey from the welcome drink until the final dance.

All of the paper goods were designed by the talented bride and included marbled backgrounds and a gilt gemstone monogram. This design was incorporated throughout the wedding on bar fronts and signage.

On arrival, guests were treated to an iced wedding tea cocktail in the bar tent and then mingled on the lawn enjoying music in the relaxed lounge spaces.

The ceremony took place over the pool on a custom built stage. The bride wore a spectacular sequinned gown and carried an organic bouquet of tulips, dahlias, garden roses, berries, snapdragon, asparagus fern, lisianthus and beech foliage.

Guest’s were invited to participate in the ceremony by each adding a flower to an arrangement begun by Jessie, Richard and Richard’s daughter.

Following the ceremony canapés were circulated and guests were ushered across the road to McHugh’s Restaurant which had been transformed with coloured lighting, draping and tablescapes with natural linen cloths, sequinned overlays and centrepieces of floral, potted ferns, antlers, succulents, vegetables and fruit.

For dessert and dancing we transformed the house once again. Bringing it to life with lighting including festoon bulbs, chandeliers and lanterns suspended from the magnificent pohutukawa trees. Dessert was a selection of homemade treats contributed by friends and family members as well as the most impressive cheese board served with whisky.

They danced the night away under the stars by the ocean and the pool.

From The Bride…Our wedding was at my parents home, we wanted it to be comfortable and welcoming for our guests with a gypsy-bohemian vibe. Red Creative jumped on board our magic carpet, took the steering wheel and transported my parents home into another realm! They were so competent that the whole process was not only a breeze but enjoyable too. Being creatives ourselves we know the importance of trust with a client, when you have a clients trust you know you can work at your best and give the best results. This was our attitude with Red Creative, we loved their work and knew they would do an amazing job so trusted them completely. We were included in the fun parts of the process, and didn’t have to deal with the not so fun bits, so it was great!. Nothing was impossible for the Red Creative team.

Intimate New Zealand Wedding

This is the type of wedding that makes you feel all cozy and happy inside.  A wedding that is as simply elegant as it is heartwarming with sweeter than sweet details and a bride and groom who are soooo in love, it literally radiates from every gorgeous second captured by Moving Films.  I’m talking moment after moment of pure joy from their hearts to yours.  Press play to see just what I mean.


From Moving Films… Simple and understated, Mark and Louisa’s wedding was an intimate ceremony and celebration of their newly blended families, where Louisa’s bridesmaids were made up of her daughter, and Mark’s two daughters. Close friends and family witnessed their vows in the relaxed setting of Zen Garden at Whitford, overlooking Auckland’s Rangitoto Island, followed by a sumptuous dinner by Michelin Starred Chef, Philip Reynolds and speeches honouring the beautiful couple.

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.
