Happy Monday folks! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend! We are being utterly spoilt with the most incredible summer weather around here no rain in weeks which is rather unheard of in Auckland! Just beautiful sunny warm (ok stinking hot to be honest!) days. Monique and Steven got married on a one such day at the end of last summer, on Auckland's beautiful Waiheke Island and the lovely Jody from I DO PHOTOGRAPHY was there to capture it in all it's pastel coloured beauty. The florals by LEAF & HONEY are A-MAZ-ING!! Check out the stunning floral chandeliers they look amazing in MUDBRICK VINEYARD'S beautiful restaurant. Sophia from MY WAIHEKE a guru of all things Waiheke Island helped with coordinating the event. Be sure to check out the film from BUBBLEROCK at the bottom of the post as well.

A couple since they were the tender age of 15, Monique & Steve loved the contrast that Mudbrick offered them as a venue. With views of the ocean, it's also surrounded by bush, lush gardens and of course the vineyards. It gives the feeling of being somewhere old and romantic and almost Tuscan like yet retains a modern and chic appearance. With no theme to speak of they let the venue direct the styling for their day. Table decor included beautiful copper vessels to house flowers in, combined with cut crystal and rusted tin cans and Mudbricks own raw yet elegant design was a great backdrop to the fairy lights and candles all around.

Living and working in a remote area of Australia meant planning a destination wedding was a challenge so they found vendors they could trust implicitly. Having suppliers that not only produce quality work but that connect with your vision will give you confidence and peace of mind that your day will flow together smoothly and just as you imagined. For us our suppliers were an investment (in my sanity) and not an expense.
