Special note – Planned while at Simply Perfect Weddings.
The sweetest Niro and Shamaun planned an intimate Queenstown wedding with their family and closest friends. Wanting something just as special and beautiful as a big wedding back home, they chose a beautiful ceremony location with lake and mountain views followed by a delicious dinner at Akarua Wines with a Kitchen by Artisan.
Niro loves details, so we were styling and planning the big day for months. We opted for simple but stunning ceremony decor featuring a draped and flowered wooden archway, a petal aisle and bar of sweet-treats for after the ceremony.
We then planned for an Al Fresco dinner under a canopy of fairy lights, plus organised woven linen napkins, gorgeous stationery, punny tags for mini honey jars, antique candle holders and flower-filled lanterns for the reception. With rain threatening, we still decided to push on and keep the party outside – cue blankets and umbrellas to stave off any roque raindrops.
Did we already mention the sweet treats? Niro happens to LOVE cake (um…who doesn’t, right?!) so organised a special birthday cake for Shamaun, to go alongside their wedding cake and dessert. Everyone went home with very full tummies plus a full and happy heart, after a sparkler exit.
Photos speak a thousand words and it sure was easy to create a gallery with Niro and Shamaun’s gorgeous wedding – jump in yourselves with Williams Photography and you might find some inspiration for your own special day!
