An Elegant Garden Party Themed Wedding
Evening everyone! Regular visitors to Chic Vintage Brides may have noticed it has been an incey bit quiet on the post and Pinterest front recently but after a much needed, not so sneaky break, I am back and normal service will resume! And do I have a treat for you today, with this glorious real wedding from dynamic duo Bayly & Moore…..
New Zealand based Sophia Bayly and Simon Moore spend most of their year jetting to America, Australia and anywhere around the world they are wanted to shoot wedding stills, stop motion animation and films. They have the most beautifully natural, documentary style of storytelling, shooting images that tell genuine stories and show real people at their best – who could forget their first wedding on Chic Vintage Brides, this gorgeous 1950s inspired Melbourne Wedding? And I just know you are going to love the elegant Felicity and Ant’s Kumeu Valley Estate garden party wedding, with its hand-made bunting to die for, lemonade & champagne stand, ice-cream cart and wild picnic…..
I love Felicity’s chic waist cinching wedding dress and her relaxed updo topped by her fresh floral headband. And how perfect is Kumeu Valley Estate? Just the perfect balance of relaxed rustic barn and grand winery, it is hard to imagine it is but 30 minutes from Auckland’s CBD.
A huge thankyou to the lovely Sophia Bayly of Bayly & Moore for sharing these images – thank you so much Sophia, your work always inspires and wows me. See more of Bayly& Moore on CVB here and some of their truly breathtaking stop motions, capturing not only the moments but the magic of weddings here – be warned though they are even more beautiful than their photos and you will want one of your own.
Returning from holiday really isn’t so bad when you return to wedding gorgeousness such as this!
Who else’s mouth is watering at that nut-topped, scrummy looking cake?
