From Blossom and Lace was inspired by all the cherry blossom in spring as it creates a romantic theme and works well with a lace dress and feathers. We wanted to incorporate some vintage ware and Shirley from Wanaka Wedding Flowers styled the shoot in her own garden under 25 cherry trees that line the drive as well as using items from her large range of hire props. Just like with a real wedding, some special props were used. One prop was an Ostrich feather cape which Shirley’s father brought back from South Africa in 1949 when he played rugby there with the New Zealand All Blacks. Pri from Ican models had the look in that gorgeous gown by Essense of Australia , enhanced by Janine our make up artist and Sally, the hair stylist, to create something exotic while Ruth, from Fluidphoto, captured it all.

Oh my goodness—and I mean GOODness. This inspiration shoot from the geniuses at Sweet Events Photography, De Coeur A Coeur and Weddings By Paris is making me giddy. Let’s start with those insanely beautiful Rue De Seine wedding dresses (especially the beaded one!). And then there’s the gorgeous flowers, the bright white loft, the sweet cake, and the minimal yet organic decor. But that’s not all. Head to THE VAULT for all the beauty!

…A white palette is something a bride should never be afraid of. It will add class and elegance to any wedding. Fresh and crisp whites with a touch of glass and silver to add some texture… timeless. This palette complimented the venue well with its exposed brick walls and light filled windows.
The bride is in stunning Rue De Seine gowns. The Jasmine gown adorned in beautiful heavy metal hand embroidered details and the Mackenzie an understated gown with a stunning french lace bodice. Both gowns different to each other but both suiting the diversity of the venue. Their hair simple yet organic with a touch of sparkle in their eyes. Holding bouquets of Milano ruscus, grape vine tendrils, large ivy leave, ladder fern and white garden roses tied with plant dyed ribbons.
A simple table setting with handmade ceramics, white gloss cutlery, beautifully detailed glass goblets, white taper candles with a touch of ivy. All set on a soft grey satin with beautiful white french bistro chairs. Understated yet classic with its minimal organic features. The ceremony space fit for a princess. White french bistro chairs with pillar candles lining the aisle following through to a beautiful broken arch made out of ivy. Against an exposed brick wall. All details being natural and uncomplicated.
A stationery suite so simple and clean with beautiful soft grey calligraphy, an embossed silver wax seal and transparent paper to wrap the invite. The two tier cake adding texture and depth, bottom tier covered in coconut flakes adding texture and the top tier covered in silver dribble. Just as yummy as it looks.
Each detail of the shoot was thought out to follow through from one another. A cohesive shoot to showcase each element individually as well as together.

A beautiful film, a beautiful couple and beautiful words spoken by the groom, this sweet-as-can-be film from Sunshine Wedding Films is filled with heart. And has pretty as it all is, it’s the emotion that you feel in every moment that truly touches you, and to me, there is nothing better than that.
From Sunshine Wedding Films…Sarah and Siua are from Australia (Siua is originally from Dunedin, NZ) and they travelled over to Queenstown for their wedding. Family and friends came from all over – NZ, Tonga and Australia. The wedding reception was filled with impromptu dancing, cultural performances and possibly the most beautiful speech from a groom we’ve heard. Sarah warned that Siua could write Hallmark cards for a living and you’ll be able to tell why.
