On Saturday the 26th of March Wild Hearts hosted New Zealand’s first Destination Wedding Fair at Mahana Estates. The Wild Hearts Wedding Fair was created to inspire and entertain, with creative vendors and products guests were sure to fall in love with!
Our guests were welcomed with acoustic sounds, delicious foodie vendors cooking up a storm and goodie bags filled to the brim with some of the coolest products NZ and Australia have to offer. VIPs were directed to their seats in the secret cellar for the first runway show, that showcased designers such as Caroline Campion, Johanna Heir Bridal, Victor Bridesmaid, Anna Campbell, Karen Willis Holmes and Home Bodii, along with stunning hair by Rachel White and makeup by The Body Shop NZ.
But where would we have been without our fabulous vendors! Photographers: Tim Williams Photography, Bek Smith; Stationery Designers:Forage and Spruce, Speedy Print; Venues: Villa Victoria, Petite Fleur; Florists: Perfect Style; Caterers: Madame Lu’s, and Blackbird Cakery to name a few! The atmosphere was relaxed and buzzing with conversation, and vendors had gone above and beyond to create spaces to inspire and delight.
A countdown is officially on for next year’s destination events! Anyone fancy a guess at where we’re off to next?
Thanks to our incredible major sponsors White Magazine, Mahana Estates, The Edge, and iTicket for supporting the Wild Hearts movement.
The feedback so far from guests, vendors and sponsors has been so overwhelmingly lovely and we can not wait to see what 2017 has in store!
