Wild Hearts Christchurch 2019 Wedding Fair Recap

A beautiful evening under the stars celebrating love in the Garden City for Wild Hearts Christchurch 2019. With our fist ever night time event, a stunning new venue iconic to Christchurch, the very best selection of talented vendors, an amazing lineup of designers and industry leaders – we had the most incredible evening at Ilex in Christchurch’s Botanic Gardens on Saturday.

We were also very excited to launch the stunning new Truly Yours clear marquees with the South Islands very first black framed clear marquee nestled on the lawn outside Ilex. Inside there were more vendors to explore and our VIP guests were treated to a special hideaway space hosted by Together Journal. Greta Kenyon – the Founder & Editor of Together Journal also hosted a Q&A session with some industry faves including Charlie from Chaos & Harmony, Zoe from The White Tree, and Sophie & Jamie from Truly Yours.

For those who couldn’t make it, we wanted to share a recap on all of the magic that happened on the weekend at our 3rd annual Christchurch Wild Hearts Wedding Fair, beautifully captured by Sarah Clements Photography.

A HUGE thank you must also go to all of our Wild Hearts Christchurch sponsors, vendors, designers, behind the scenes teams, hire vendors, foodies, venue staff, our Wild Crew and our amazing guests – the evening was all we had dreamed and more!
