One of the things we especially love about weddings is the excuse you get to have lots of parties, one of course being an Engagement Party. We are very fortunate this year to have our own Well Travelled Bride to celebrate with, Kelsey Genna. Kelsey & David took off to Waiheke Island to share a weekend with close family & friends with some Winter inspiration for other brides to be.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Puriri Valley, one of the island's exclusive properties. Full of rustic French character and feminine rooms for guests traveling from further afield, it was the perfect space to host an engagement party. We love that Waiheke is just a quick ferry over from Auckland - so glamorous!
Our Bride to be wore a beautiful custom gown of her own design which designed especially to suit the surroundings of Puriri Valley. The bride-to-be’s hair and makeup was done by locals Amy at The Beauty Spot and Niki of Waiheke Hair and Nails. There was warm toned, seasonal flowers, plenty of local produce, cheese and a very special selection of champagne from Three French Vines.
Cin Cin! Here’s to happy times on Waiheke and enjoy the ideas captured by Jadon from Avosa.
