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

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!

Vintage Chic Bride

Hair & Makeup

Our vintage chic bride is one of the prettiest, and most accessible make-up trends for this season. Think of English rose, soft and romantic tones. Whether you pair this with a smokey eye or a natural face, this hue is the new nude for this season brides.

vintage chic

Classic Bride

Hair & Makeup

This might be a classic, but the low bun has really come back for this season among loose updos, soft chignons, and boho waves. This classic look is always a stunning an elegant way to frame the face paired with the seductive and timeless red lip.

Classic

Relaxed Bride

Hair & Makeup

Relaxed bride is exactly that think of effortless, natural, wavy, textured locks with a simple hair piece that is not fussy but pretty all the same. Well groomed brows and soft earthy tones are a must too pull off this look.
