Wedding Fever

Warning, enormous post alert! Basically, I can't make it any smaller because my sister Tess and her husband Matt's wedding was such a legend of a day and the photos are brilliant.

The photographer Simon Darby did a superb job of capturing Tess and Matt's big day and to top it all off, Central Otago pulled out an absolute stunner of a day. 

On the Thursday before the wedding Ella (the other half of MintSix) organised what turned out to be one of the most brilliant Hen's parties I've ever been to. There was spectacular scenery,(Jack's Point Golf Course)some delicious Kiwi wines, a great bunch of girls and even some ballet on the pontoon!
The girls were a little shocked when told to get their gears off and hop into some tutus...

As you can see, they have still got some moves! Tess even managed to pull out a spectacular leap,(how I managed to catch that on my i-phone I don't know!).
Can't go past a bit of an arm party shot... Wearing white Hermes bracelet, Tiffany chain bracelet, Michael Kors rose gold watch (purchase at Shopbop with free shipping to New Zealand, yay!) black Sportsgirl bracelet and white leather link cuff.

As you can see from the two far right shots, things deteriorated a little after we headed into Queenstown and we had a slightly later night than first planned!

The wedding was at Mount Soho, near Arrowtown, Central Otago.
Tess and Matt decided to take their photos before the ceremony. They had a bit of a moment in the forest on their own before we all joined them for more pics.

The bridal party busted out quite a few 'blue steels' (as you do)and by all accounts we had a great time during the photos (especially when we cracked into the champers as it was a 35 degree day and we were, needless to say, a little thirsty!)
My two little blondies on the left and Ella's three (minus bubba Harriet)on the right. The kids are wearing dresses from Seed and some feather headpieces that my mama whipped up, very clever lady that she is.

The ceremony was beautiful and my sister Brydie's fiancee Simon played and sang 'Throw your arms around me' by Hunters and Collectors and did a stellar job of it.  
MintSix styled the event which had a boho rustic sort of a theme, (the word 'whimsy' was thrown around a fair bit too, much to the boys amusement) Plenty of wild flowers, lace, old silver trays, antlers and vintage bottles were used including a selection of MintSix products such as our 'Emotions Vases' above.
First dance was to Mumford & Son's, 'I will wait'. The bridal party joined in half way through with a bit of a choreographed routine, which of course included a lot of foot stamping (compulsory whenever this song is played, you just can't not!). 

A truly spectacular wedding and a day/night we will remember forever. A huge Congrats to Tess and Matt. xx
