Rustic Winter Wedding Inspiration

new zealand inspiration

The talented team of vendors behind today’s gorgeous styled shoot wanted to show brides-to-be that summer isn’t the only beautiful time of year to host a wedding – winter can be just as amazing! By creating cozy, intimate spaces, wearing something a bit out of the norm like a long-sleeved gown or a pretty cover up, and  embracing the beautiful + rustic hues of winter, you can create a day that is brimming with honest and understated beauty…

The shoot took place in the picturesque provence of Hawke’s Bay (on the east coast of the north island of New Zealand) and was gorgeously styled and captured by Meredith Lord.
