Frances and Shaun’s New Zealand Dream

After a far too long break from the blog I am so excited to share this truly beautiful destination wedding with you today.  Frances and Shaun were married at the Tarureka Estate in Featherstone, NZ, a rustic, sensitively restored historic barn with it’s very own chapel and banquet area.  I couldn’t help smiling watching the photo highlights reel, everything just looks so effortlessly stunning.

Frances came to The Wild Heart looking for a relaxed, fun and modern wedding dress to suit the relaxed vibe of her big day and ‘Lewisia’ by Elizabeth Dye fit the bill perfectly.  After a few bespoke changes to make the dress fit just right Frances created the dress of her dreams and these photos by Anna Munro show it off in all it’s glory!

Congratulations Frances and Shaun, you created a day full of love and laughter and one that i’m sure your guests will remember for years to come. I’ll let the photographs do the talking now…
