Featured bride Danelle's posh vintage wedding

Danelle and Doug got married on the 31st January 2015 at The Bungalow Coastal Retreat, Oakura, New Plymouth (Taranaki).

While the couple didn’t have a wedding theme they went a little bit vintage with the flowers, the car (1966 impala), the signs, the cake, and the cup and saucers.  Danelle contrasted this with a touch of posh/1920s with her dress (cap sleeves) and the chandelier, roof silk draping, and the napkins folded as dinner suits. Danelle’s Dad also got some lights for the trees that were her and Doug’s favourite colours.

Advice for future brides:   

“Don’t sweat the small stuff. Take time out in the day to step away from everyone with your new hubby to look at everything from the outside.”

Danelle’s wedding in one word… “Amazing.”
