Oh, this wedding is straight out of a reverie – with soft stormy blue accents, pale pink flowers and frosty greens, the colour palette had all the makings of a fantasy dreamland. Set in New Zealand, where the natural terrain is already indisputably beautiful, the newlyweds paid close attention to the little things, bringing all the details together like it was meant to be. Just like their union.

From textured throws to gilded candlesticks for a tinge of drama, the props included antlers that gave the wedding a rustic feel. The bridal portraits were stunning of course, thanks to the tall trees and rolling hills. But our favourite was the unbelievably beautiful bridal bouquet, truly one of the most beautiful we’ve seen yet, and that dreamy blue sash! Beautifully captured by AHA of Axioo, these photos totally took our breath away.

Kinsky, the newlyweds’ best friend: “I was introduced to Vania during the darkest times of Winson’s life. It was when Winson’s parents had passed away, and Vania would stay by his side giving him the support he needed. From that moment on, I knew this girl was the one for him. I remember when we met at his mum’s funeral and I thought to myself, ‘How good God is to send Vania to him at the very perfect moment.’ She was like an angel, sent by God to take care of him during his worst times. Apparently, I was not the only one who thought that; most of his friends said the same thing. And we couldn’t be more grateful for her!
 
“So two years went by, and we heard that they were engaged. We were ecstatic when we heard that the wedding would be in New Zealand! It was Winson who came up with this idea, and Vania is a pretty adventurous lady so New Zealand was the perfect place for their union. All the details were designed by Vania herself, and all the materials were selected by Winson. The wedding was super duper beautiful and I believe it was one of the most heartfelt weddings I’ve ever attended. I felt like crying the whole day!”
