A Quirky Kiwi Wedding By The Official Photographers

The Official Photographers Wedding Photography_0025
A little bit rustic, a little bit vintage and a whole lot of awesome, today’s wedding captured by THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHERS has a laid back kiwi vibe to it and a bridal party worthy of a magazine cover! Carl & Krystie had to find a new venue only a month before the wedding EEEK, but the whole day went without a hitch thanks to event planner Elly from Coopers in the Waikato. I am a little bit (ok a lot) in love with the mix and match white lace bridesmaids dresses, and the gorgeous sunset photos (soooo romantic!). Enjoy xox

Where Coopers, Waikato

Tell us about the proposal?

Nothing extravagant, I was wearing my track pants and he proposed on the deck overlooking our back yard he didn’t proposed with a ring though ­ it was a sapphire in a case so we could use one of his best friends to design and build the ring.

How did you decide on a venue?

We visited about 5 venues 6 months before the wedding, 1 month prior to the wedding we had to find a new venue due to unforeseen circumstances, Coopers Event Planner Elly was so accommodating, no request was too hard and she was happy to make my vision of the room come alive.

Talk to us about your gorgeous dress!…

I am not much of a shopper so I had a fair idea about what I wanted before we went shopping, but i didn’t want the huge price tag that went with it….. After showing my sister Amanda the dress that I thought would be the one, she sent me a link to ‘Made with Love Bridal’ ­we made an appointment and I found the perfect dress.

What was the inspiration behind your day? 

I wanted something simple, with a little bit of rustic and a little bit of vintage. I didn’t want everything planned and I wanted everyone to feel comfortable on the day ­so the girls got to choose their own dresses, how they had their hair etc

Did you DIY? If so, what did you do?

Yes we made all the invitations, the centrepieces for the tables (jars), the items hanging from the trees, the tree stumps for the ceremony, frames for the polaroid photos and the chalkboards. My dad also drew the tree for the fingerprint guest book.

Any advice for engaged couples?

My advice to anyone planning a wedding ­ you are paying someone to do what they do best ­ give them some guidelines of what you like and then let them to their jobs you will be so happy with the outcome.
