There's nothing like a beautiful summer vineyard wedding to inspire you on your wedding planning journey and this one has inspiration and personal touches to boot! 

Our beautiful bride Emma and her beau Jordan tied the knot at Markovina Vineyard in Kumeu at the end of last year. She chose to  wear our gorgeous Maggie Sottero; 'Esme' gown, with its amazing beaded bodice and full ball gown skirt, she most certainly sparkled on this bright sunny day! 

Dreamlife Photography captured every detail beautifully.  

"My favourite part of the gown was the beaded detail in the bodice. Originally I wanted something more simple but I fell in love with the style and look of the 'Esme' by Maggie Sottero."  

For me, the best part of the day was Jordan's vows, he wrote them himself and learned them by heart.

Jordan and I wanted to have a fun and unique wedding, we wanted to reflect our personalities and our interests, so we had Jordan's car aswell as Jordan's mates' cars on display as part of the wedding. For our cake, we wanted to have our beloved pets as bride and groom, the bride was my old pet rabbit Nibbles and the groom, Jordan's pet guinea pig Roscoe. We had also got a cat; Turbo, just before we got married so we asked for him to be featured as well.
