Our Next Stop: Wellington, New Zealand

We have travelled to, explored and now share with you one of the world's most stylish wedding destinations.

Internationally regarded as the “coolest little capital” Wellington was the perfect next stop for the Well Travelled Bride team. Kelsey Genna and Yvette Edwards, both wedding professionals who work all over the world, have a large piece of their hearts in Wellington as it’s the place they call home. They love Wellington and the surrounding region and couldn’t wait to share the characterful city with the world through their curated guide.

The Well Travelled Bride website features visually stunning guides and takes readers along with Kelsey and Yvette as they experience and reveal an incredible wedding or elopement destination. Through the guides, which are full of top tips, and the beautifully captured love story they shoot, they aim to inspire couples and to help them to plan their dream destination wedding or elopement.

“Destination weddings are an increasingly popular choice for couples looking to turn their wedding or elopement into a trip of a lifetime. Its all about sharing memorable experiences with your closest friends and family, and you can have all that on offer in Wellington, Kapiti and Wairarapa” said Kelsey.

Yvette explains: “The wedding industry in almost every location internationally is full of talented creatives and lovely people doing incredible things and Wellington is a fabulous example. It’s wonderful to think we are partnering like minded couples with the right people to make their wedding dreams come and we are connecting local businesses to expand their networks.”

The Well Travelled Bride website launched in March 2016 and the team are off at the end of August to curate two more guides in Oxford and Budapest. During the trip they are partnering with large international brands, creative businesses and the best local wedding vendors to create the guides.
