With a four day long shindig booked in at the gorgeous Farmhouse property near Opoutere Beach in NZ, Emma and Joe spend their wedding surrounded by beautiful people, and of course some rather stunning blooms (check out that flower wall!)

“In the evening it was the best feeling to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine with our close friends and family and to admire and appreciate all the hard work that had gone into setting up for the day,” the bride mentions, taking special note of the incredible flower wall arrangement, of which her father made the 6.5m framing – the ultimate DIY!

As far as favourite moments of the day, the bride explains that their decision to do a ‘first look’ and bridal photos before the ceremony meant the pair could enjoy the company of their guests post ‘I Do’, whilst photographer Benjamin (of Benjamin and Elise) had high praise coming from the couple, “(he)  was seriously amazing! He made us feel so relaxed on the day and was a real pleasure to be around.”

The gorgeous bride rocked the Florence gown from NZ locals, Rue de Seine, and boy did she look stunning, Emma adding, “I love how simple it seems but on closer inspection the amount of beading and detail is incredible.”
