Feijoa Bridesmaids Brunch by {MAG}rouge

The concept behind our feature shoot in the recent issue of {MAG}rouge was a bride to be taking her best girlfriends to a lovely spot for lunch and then asking them to be her bridesmaids for her big day. The invitation presented to them was designed and printed onto a teatowel for a fun keep sake. We spent the day shooting out at Lothlorien which is a Feijoa Orchard out on a very long windy dusty road heading towards Helensville... this place was my kinda heaven!! Seriously it was gorgeous, I want to beg the family who own it to let me camp out there each summer!! The kinda place dreams are made of... we didn't actually know this before we turned up on the day so we really lucked out! And they were so kind to let us make ourselves and home for the day.

The fabulous Sutherland Kovach (or half the rougies to you and me!!) captured these stunning images, and naturally all the very tasty treats were provided by Judit. AND let's not forget that donut bunting - who doesn't want to take a giant bite out of it hanging in the tree? If you'd like the recipe for this head over to Judit's facebook page. Thanks once again to Annie Oxborough for coming to the rescue at the eleventh hour to help out with flowers! The invitation I designed for it will be available on my website shortly.

The pretty 'bridesmaids' dresses were all courtesy of Ruche... aren't they all so sweet? A big thank you to our four models who put up with a chilly day in little dresses and still managed to look super cute. Our fabulous friend Sox Teng worked with us on hair & makeup. If you keep an eye out on our Facebook page over the coming week we may, just may, have one of these pretties to give away!!
