Bride & Groom MAGAZINE 77 Real Weddings ROSIE&WILL

Returning to New Zealand after living overseas, Rosie and Will wanted their wedding day to celebrate their love for each other, for their families and for the stunning New Zealand landscape. Rosie shares the details from their day…

Our ceremony location at Castaways was perfect – set on a cliff face above a beautiful black sand beach surrounded by toitoi and flax. I was escorted down the aisle by my father and grandfather, who cracked jokes and had me laughing the whole way! Our wedding was inspired by a vintage theme with a bohemian twist, using soft and romantic colours in the table settings, bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets. I wore a modern vintage gown with a daisy lace back and embellished flowers down the train. The bohemian theme came to life through the guys’ rustic herb buttonholes, the pretty plaits and flowers in the bridesmaids’ hair, and it also inspired our tea-party photo shoot, which was in a field of wildflowers and long grass. My four-year-old nephew welcomed our guests to the reception with a karakia (blessing), before we all partied the night away. We felt so incredibly blessed to feel so much love on our wedding day, where family, friends and love took centre stage.
