Auckland beachside wedding

Remember this cute little engagement shoot I featured a few weeks back? Well today you're in for a treat as Rachel & Ben have kindly shared their wedding with us. Captured beautifully by Coralee and Alex Photography they lucked out with a stunning spring day in Auckland
Rachel ended up with two dresses on the day, a short BGBC Max Azria number for the reception and for the ceremony she refashioned her Mum's gown making it all the more sentimental. Head to Rachel's blog to see a photo of her Mum in the same dress and you'll see how she has updated it (apparently she had already cut off the sleeves without telling her Mum when she was 14!!)... I love how she's added a belt and the cameo to really make it her own. Rachel & Ben DIY'd a lot of their wedding, from making all the cupcakes and the cake itself, to doing all the table decor.
AND they served milkshakes at the wedding!! OMG I love milkshakes... what a fabulous idea!!
To read more about their wedding head over to Rachel's blog here or Coralee & Alex's website.

I love so many things about this wedding - don't even know where to start. First the still shots - perfume & shoes - are amazing! Then the table - it's so simple but the colors really pop! Ok, I could go on but this is getting a little long. ;) I Love it all!

Gosh, this is pretty! Now I want a milkshake and a cupcake (because the cupcakes were pretty cute too)! Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Just catching up - love this wedding and so glad I didn't miss it! The bride's styling is wonderful, and I love the bridesmaid dresses. And also the pink napkins - such a simple touch, but that shade is stunning and it makes such an impact on the whole table!
