Vintage Tea Party...

Tracey and Jason are mad about tea, so what other way could have been more perfect for them to tie the knot than at a tea party?! A high tea at Larnach Castle in Dunedin, to be more specific. Full of vintage charm, this castle was perfect for the event and made for some delightful images!

Tracey chose our Maggie Sottero; Verona gown which fit beautifully into the vintage theme with the delicate lace details and bateau neckline.

With Vanessa Adcock at the lens, this wedding album is an absolute master piece!

"We told all our guests to bring their dancing shoes and we introduced them to Gaelic dancing. If you've never been to a ceilidh, you've missed out. There is a folk orchestra led by a caller who teaches you each dance as you go along. No experience required. The whole room got up to dance. Despite the fact we had limited the amount of alcohol we served no one complained."
