Anna Kidman is fast becoming a firm favourite around here and it's not hard to see why this crazy stylist wedding that we featured in the issue of Magnolia Rouge Magazine just out. Held at the amazing venue of Old Forest School in the Bay of Plenty there is so much to love about this celebration it's one of those ones you only wish you were privileged enough attend!!

After meeting in their local town of Waihi Beach one summer, this super stylish couple envisioned their wedding as a very fun and casual get together in a barn with all their nearest and dearest. Finding said barn was their first challenge. Luckily for them, after doing an online search and finding Old Forest School, they had found the perfect solution. Being a creative couple, they relished the planning and design aspect of their wedding, and together with the help of friends they made several things from scratch including the beautiful organic bouquets, which were an abundance of greenery and white wildflowers.

Jade's stunning two piece gown from Australian designer Karla Spetic made a stylish statement of its own and was one of the easiest aspects of the planning process for the bride; she made her mind up within minutes of trying it on.

With the groom coming from a very musical family it was only natural that it play a big part in their celebrations. His sister sang their engagement song as the bride walked down the aisle, and whilst they signed the register his dad played music. The remainder of the afternoon's entertainment came courtesy of some talented local buskers who played into the evening.
