I have the prettiest of weddings from the lovely Kate Grewal to round off the week... I mean just check out all those gorgeous floral... from one of my favourite florists Annie Oxborough. Natalie and Matt live in London, but decided that coming home to New Zealand was a must for their wedding day. It's was no secret that their family and friends were over the moon to have them back home for this beautiful event set at Kumeu Valley Estate, just outside of Auckland. The couple did such a lovely job planning their wedding that you would have never guessed that everything was organized from overseas. It was the perfect balance of a little vintage, with a rustic modern twist that created this elegant and colorful setting.
From the Bride: "A lot of the inspiration for the way we chose to style the day was generally informed by the type of atmosphere we wanted our wedding to have. We didn't have a set theme or even a strict colour palette really, but wanted something that was relaxed and not overly formal. Since the venue was a barn style with a large outdoor lawn area with a forest surrounding it, we wanted our tables to reflect that and bring in a bit of a 'country' and natural feel to them. It felt really perfect on the day and everything seemed to fit together nicely."
