The Wellington Wedding Show - October 30th 2011

What a fantastic day we had yesterday! It was the one and only Wellington Wedding Show held at the TSB Arena, Queens Wharf.

It began with a hiss and roar as all wedding shows always do! We spoke with so many gorgeous brides and grooms, mother of the bride, sister of the bride and of course the BBF (brides best friend) - and we all knew who was who thanks to the very helpful stickers everyone wore. Wellington turned on a wonderful day and it certainly didn't stop anyone from coming along to the show... run from 10.30-3.30pm, it was the perfect amount of time.

The 2 fashion shows were truly brilliant. Amongst numerous models, it featured the oh so stunning Priyani Puketapu - aka Miss New Zealand - and the gowns were beautiful !!

We were positioned next to a gorgeous company called Le Chic Cake Boutique - they are new to the Wellington region and had an amazing selection of cakes to sample. Not only is Carla extremely talented but she's just so lovely to speak to!

Cocoa Berry had a wonderful day - we love being able to meet with people face to face and show people exactly what we can do to help with their special day.

The colour purple

When I think of the colour purple, I think of royalty and today that's quite fitting.

This morning I've been speaking with our newest client over in England. This gorgeous couple are getting married in Old Windsor which is a large village in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Having lived in this area myself for a number of years, I know just how beautiful this part of the country is. The venue they've chosen is an old estate set amongst landscaped grounds - such a tranquil location... just perfect!

Their colour theme is purple and whilst we're working on their invitations, I thought a purple inspiration board was called for. Whether its eggplant, indigo, magenta, fuchsia, plum, mulberry, violet, thistle or wine - they're all stunning and can be used in a numerous ways.

Anchors Aweigh

Well I must start by saying how wonderful it is to have Charlotte back! Selfish I know. But I just really missed her! So welcome back Char!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have my mum up visiting and I decided to take her down the lovely Wynyard Quarter. It was beautifully sunny as we wandered around looking for a spot to have lunch. I'm sure most Aucklanders have been down there to explore, it's really fantastic!

While secretly wishing one of the big luxurious boats was my own, it reminded me of how wonderful the nautical theme can be. If you're getting married at such gorgeous locations as Mantells On The Water or Okahu it could be just what you're after...
