Paper and lace spoke to the couple heres a few fun facts

Who Charlotte + Mike Church
WhereBy George, an industrial space in Kingsland (ceremony) + Hopetoun Alpha, where I had dreamed having my wedding since I first went inside years ago (reception)
Number of Guests 160

I said yes… at one of our favourite spots at Piha. Mike had planned the whole thing with fish and chips on the beach (except the takeaway shop was shut and we ended up with pizza). He’d bought the bubbles along and everything.

Our wedding style was… a bit of everything. We like the industrial feel, hence the warehouse space, but we love greenery, and flowers were always going to be a big part of the day. Food trucks and a caravan bar were how we included our love of food and drink.

Sam + Kirstin McGrath’s Estate

Sam + Kirstin McGrath’s Estate

Its not often your good friends get hitched! Sam and Kirsten, what a gorgeous, brilliant, fun loving couple.  I love that Max even made the Wedding day (fur baby) Venue McGarth’s estate.

They choose McGrath’s Estate for its unique barn located on the western side of the beautiful Waitakere Ranges, the small mountain range that separates Auckland City from the wild untameable West Coast.

The Barn is beautifully inspired by the traditional American Red Barn theme.

Thankyou so much for having us!

Karen + Gareth’s Devonport Wedding

Karen and Gareth’s seaside wedding took place on the waters edge at Devonport Yacht Club. So many couples want their wedding to be relaxed and laid back, and for Karen this comes so naturally.

Karen opted for beachy waves to go with her beautiful flower crown with soft natural makeup. We love the simplicity of the look she wanted.  She wore Grace Loves lace – Alexandra Gown.

Before the ceremony, photos were shot at North Head for the couple’s ‘first look’ before returning to the club for the ceremony.

Ryan + Renate – Boutique Barn

We had the privilege of looking after Renate on her wedding day.
Renate and Ryan chose Boutique Barn in Puhoi for their special day. Renate chose a soft updo, fresh and romantic with a pop of colour on her lips.

Here’s a frame from their super emotional and cute first look

Weather bombs are the hot new trend for NZ weddings in 2018, whether we like it or not. Luckily, the rain and the clouds make for great photos, Ryan and Renate were happy to get a bit wet!

Bourjois NZ Launch Event

So one Monday in July we found ourselves five stories high in an inner city Auckland building overlooking the sparkling sea, whilst late afternoon sun poured through the windows. Glasses of champagne were promptly passed our way, which we sipped whilst getting some models made up with Bourjois Catwalk.

Our Makeup Station Team made up three models, each wearing a specific look created with Bourjois products. The natural look was tres chic. The bold lip, with its rich redness, so sophisticated. And the smokey eye was superb.

Amy & Matt – Summer Wedding

Amy & Matt – Matiatia, Waiheke Island

Wow, wow, wow!  Amy and Matt’s stunning summer wedding on Waiheke Island was one to remember (For many reasons)  Firstly Hubby and I couldn’t  make the wedding as baby decided to come early! I was lucky that our dear friends were very understanding and of course Amy was very happy to have my team step in and make her beautiful for her big day. Amy wanted a classic fresh look for hair and makeup to go with her modern gown. The bridesmaids were half hair up with neutral makeup as the embellished gowns were a statement piece.

Amy is incredibly down-to-earth and I was lucky to yet again work with not only my friends, but the bridal party was just as awesome. With a long list of things to love about this wedding some of the highlights were the getting ready venues (oh the views, oh the space!), the super-stylish bridal party and the stunning location.   Best wishes to an awesome couple.
