Hello lovelies!! How was your weekend? We spent a successful one in the garden getting some new things planted... got some lovely hollyhocks in, star jasmine all along the fence line, a gorgeous climbing rose and some other goodies... can't wait for them to all start flowering... although the jasmine already is and smells amazing!! I'm definitely no green thumb... but thankfully have parents who are and are very happy to help out!! And it's certainly a very satisfying feel when you're done!
We're starting off the week with a whole lot of Waiheke Island prettiness in this collaboration between Sophia of My Waiheke Wedding & Events, and Greta of Vela Images. Sophia is planner extraordinaire over on Waiheke, so if you're considering a wedding on the lovely island (I got married there myself so I'm a huge fan... feels like you've completely escaped Auckland!!) get in touch with her to start off on the right foot. She shares a little about the shoot and the appeal of Waiheke...
Waiheke has long been a favorite for weddings, and there is nothing better than discovering that gorgeous vineyard with stunning sea views... which is what you find at one of our latest venues Casita Miro. Offering that unique mix of Spanish/Tuscan surroundings, rustic décor, rambling gardens, olive groves, Cyprus trees and wonderful rolling vines, this place is truly something special! It’s always a delight finding venues for our clients, and then putting together their special day on Waiheke Island...now more than ever there is such a selection to choose from, and we’ve built an amazing team of talented professionals to help create the full package. Our venues are beautiful canvases in which to produce amazing occasions, and it’s such a pleasure working with the community of talented vendors we have both here locally and from Auckland. Waiheke Island allows guests to drop into that relaxed holiday vibe, which is felt almost instantly as one steps off the ferry! With over 30 local vineyards and a wonderful array of private venues available it allows couples to choose venues that suit their own style and look. Waiheke is big on character, and is a location well suited to those that like to enhance the personalised elements of their wedding. It was a pleasure putting this shoot together with Greta from Vela Images, and we look forward to sharing more from Waiheke soon!
