#weddingwednesday intimate Martinborough wedding

Coney Wines in Martinborough made a fabulous location for the wedding of Michele Olney and Richard Christie in March this year. The intimate celebration saw them join with 34 others for a day of love, fun and good food and wine. 

Michele's hair and makeup was created by Penny Rose (Laura and Ellie).  Richard's suit was from SuitSource in Parnell.  Of her gown Michele said "What I loved about Shelby was the beading and the straps as it gave it a slight Greek feel, which was important to me with Greek heritage."

Michele made a change to the gown "I did have her slightly modified at the back to enable me to wear a bra, otherwise Shelby is very low cut!"

Olive leaves and ivy also complemented and extended the nod to a Greek theme.  The flowers and styling were courtesy of Yvette Edwards from Wellington.
