Paihia Perfection... A Stunning Northland Rustic Styled Wedding
When you combine a beautiful elegant bride, an old stone cathedral and breathtaking views of golden fields and the Northland coastline, add a brilliant photographer (Jess Burges) and the result is; simply Perfection...
Jess and Scott's classic country wedding included all of the best trends of the season; the rustic theme, the cowboy boots, golden accented table wear with muted toned bridesmaids and floral designs. This wedding is more like a styled shoot, it is THAT beautiful!
Our elegant and versatile Maggie Sottero gown; 'Taiya,' with its custom made bow, fit into this scene beautifully.
"I loved my custom made big bow at the back. The simplicity and elegance of the gown really lent itself to some 'wow factor.'
"There were so many great moments for different reasons. I loved saying our vows - we had a lot of fun with them and Scott was all I could focus on...everyone else was just background. I was on cloud 9 and the best thing - I did't cry!!! Your vows is the whole reason you're there right?"
"I loved being in a big van trekking around for photos with our 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen and a big chilly bin of beers was hilarious."
"I just felt so in love and the only person I could focus on was Scott."
"Our helicopter ride and entrance into our venue was fantastic and then we walked into the venue to the Country Calendar theme song."
