Sweet New Zealand Wedding in Traditional Tartan Tuesday, June 5, 2012 ~ 9:30 a.m.

Good morning! I'm officially back from my weekend trip to Vegas, and I'm excited to share today's wedding with you all. When I saw that Olivia and Colin were married in New Zealand, I was definitely intrigued; but when I saw how beautiful and sweet it was, I knew you would all love it just as much as I do! The coupled was married this past January (which is actually the height of summer) on Waiheke Island in Auckland, New Zealand. As their photographers, Bayly and Moore described, "Featuring more tartan than you can shake a sporran at, theirs was a day loaded with true love, aged scotch, thick accents and a wonderfully relaxed bride who loved every moment." (FYI - a sporran is the leather pouch that hangs around the waist; there aren't any pockets in those kilts, you know! :)


The ceremony and reception both took place in the early evening on a vineyard, where Colin and his groomsmen each wore a traditional tartan kilt! The bride wore a perfectly romantic sheath lace wedding dress by Casablanca...isn't the skirt absolutely stunning? I also love that she wore cute little white socks to match her hubby, right along with her purple high heels! Before the ceremony, the entire wedding party relaxed and enjoyed the day - after group photos, they even had a picnic! Traditional bagpipes were played during the outdoor ceremony, and the couple exchanged vows that they had chosen to write together, which turned out to be one of the highlights of the day for the bride and groom. After the ceremony, the couple and their nearly 100 guests enjoyed a lovely dinner reception at the vineyard, which was beautifully decorated with lisianthus, roses and sweet peas in white and soft pastel shades of pink and peach.


I've included many of the beautiful wedding photos below, but just in case you just haven't seen enough, there is also a great stop-motion video from the day right here, also by Bayly and Moore.
