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

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!

Traditional Vintage Styled Shoot

Lisa Foster photography approached me to work with her on a Traditional Vintage Styled Shoot. We envisioned mixing more traditional, vintage elements with updated contemporary, feminine touches. Blush pink tones, gorgeous gems and glam metallics added wow factor to  base of more traditional floral’s and earthy, rustic elements.

Here are a few of the looks I created.

Feature on Paper & Lace – Georgie & Nathan

I am delighted to see our hair and makeup for Georgies wedding featured on Paper & Lace‘s gorgeous blog. http://wp.me/p3O1vs-ed9

When Georgie got in touch with me about her dream wedding I jumped at the chance to be involved with her day. Georgie doesnt wear a lot of makeup and wanted something very natural to enhance her sparking blue eyes.  We chose a very romantic modern bun for her hair to suit the incredible dress by Alma J Bridal.  We got the bridal team ready at Georgies family farm in Waiuku. It just so happened that Georgie’s father had rescued a baby lamb a few days earlier and had a little pen set up in the lounge. This was a great distraction for us all!!! Congratulations to the gorgeous couple and a big thank you to Paper & Lace for featuring our work.
