Wild Hearts is an experience like no other, our team work 24/7 to create a magical day and encourage guests to stay for the entire event, to enjoy the experience and get to know our vendors in a more intimate and adventurous way. We bring together the some of the best creative businesses from around NZ and Australia, for a beautifully wild day of inspiration, music, wine, food and fashion!
We are so excited to be taking Wild Hearts events to five amazing destinations this year- with our first ever Tauranga event happening in exactly a month today on May 26th.
Our recent Tauranga vendor evening left us SO inspired and excited for what’s to come at this event, and we can’t wait to get together with our talented vendors for a day filled with creative inspiration. Ataahua Garden Venue will be hosting us on the day (you may recognise it from our recent feature on Pip and Stephens’ gorgeous wedding) and with its elegant walled gardens veiled in ivy, sweeping tree-lined pathways and native bush outlook, we couldn’t wish for a more beautiful location.
We have an incredible line-up of wedding and lifestyle vendors, including florals, styling, furniture hire, photographers, beauty, fashion, stationery, catering, desserts, teepees, tents, photo booths and more! See the complete list of who will be joining us at Tauranga below.
Alongside all of these amazing vendors, we’ll have some great experiences happening over the day for you to get involved in. Highlights include a mini fragrance workshop hosted by Benny from WORLD, a mini pamper bar and pop up shop with Blac Cosmetics, wine tasting and a mini food pairing workshop from Mount Michael Wines and Craft Beer & Cider tasting with the team from Our Place Magazine & Mount Brewing Co! A bloke’s zone will be located in the gallery, hosted by the guys at Carve Barber Shop and a chill out zone will be set-up in the Topkata teepee over the croquet lawn.
We’ll also have live music by the beautiful Rachel Hamilton, and James from DJ High Kings spinning live throughout the day. Our VIP ticket holders (get yours here) will be treated to a glass of Veuve Clicquot in our VIP Lounge hosted by our lovely friends at Together Journal. And of course, our highly anticipated Wild Hearts Runway will take place at 3pm in the garden courtyard!
We thought we’d share some of our favourite images from our 2017 Auckland event, featuring some of the amazing vendors who will be joining us in Tauranga.
To keep you going throughout the day the main bar will be on site in the garden courtyard with wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverage options available for guests to purchase. There will also be food, coffee and treats available to purchase at the venue. It’s going to be a beautiful day not only for those planning a wedding but for anyone who loves fashion, beauty, events, styling, amazing food & wine and endless creative inspiration!
