Local bridal designer Kelsey Genna totally rocks my world. Her elegant and unique gowns handcrafted here in New Zealand, are not only ridiculously stunning, but delightfully affordable.

I have been head over heels in love with the Verona gown from the first day I laid eyes on it, so I am very excited to discover that this work of art now comes in a winter version with delicate sleeves, and a sequin version for extra glamour. Sigh.

Today I thought you might like a glimpse of Kelsey’s 2014 collection preview beautifully photographed by Laura Tait, with makeup by Natalie Dent and flowers by Leaf and Honey.

Swoon over Kelsey’s entire collection here, and check out her cool cat blog The Flower Bride here. Enjoy!
