Ruth and Adam

I was delighted to receive a lovely email in my inbox a few weeks ago from the beautiful Ruth, who kindly shared with me the photographs of her special day. I had to share this elegant wedding with you, dear readers. The Vintage touches are just delicious. I must also give special mention to Ruth's Mum who did the flowers herself, despite having no prior experience. As a florist myself, I know how difficult it can be and the bouquets just look awesome.

Ruth and Adam met in the UK back in 2007 when she moved in next door. Both being runners, Adam invited her along to his running club, and the rest, as they say, is history!
After leaving the UK they spent time travelling and finally settling here in New Zealand.

Some of Ruth's highlights were the incredibly fun photo booth, a first dance choreographed by Dayelle at Dance Dimensions and of course marrying her man! A neat idea was a badminton racquet with the face of a guest who couldn't be there attached. She made it around the whole wedding!

Enjoy these gorgeous images by Kelly Newland Photography. Check out Ruth's dress designed by the talented Josie smith who is just 18 years old.

Ruth's tips for the Bride in waiting?
Have something to keep you busy during any down time while getting ready. You don't want to be staring out the window with nerves building up.
Have the wedding that you and your partner want and don't worry about what other people expect or worry about whether they will enjoy your day or not. If they really care about you they will like it no matter what! You are not on 4 weddings. No one is judging you!
Ruth found it hard having her Mother and Maid of Honor 12000 miles away back in the UK.

Wedding Details
Venue: The lovely couple were Married at Queendom Gardens in Auckland
Photographer: Kelly Newland Photography - Kelly checked out the venue 48hours before and already had a lot of the shots in mind before the day. She also came prepared with black umbrellas and blanket in case of rain. She is very good at directing you and makes you feel relaxed. Super professional and unintrusive.

Dress: Josie Smith Couture. Josie was a pleasure to work with and she made my dream dress. It was the most incredible journey and I don't think of it so much as my dress but as our dress - mine and Josie's.

Catering: A Bite on the Side Catering - Linda was just phenomenal. The food was great. All of the plates went back to the kitchen clean. We sampled the food prior to confirming our booking and she was so flexible. We even ended giving her a couple of recipes that we wished for and she made them for us. She also created our dream cheese cake without a recipe!

The Photo booth: The Little Black Photo Booth was fab. No one was on the dance floor. They were all having their photos taken as we had provided a large props box.

Thanks for sharing Ruth!
