A Relaxed Rustic Old Forest School Wedding

Today’s rustic chic wedding took place at one my fave New Zealand wedding venues Old Forest School, and the moment I laid eyes on the pretty pics by talented photographer Erica Jane I knew you’d love it as much as I do! Dan & Holly’s day is relaxed, fun (they had a burger van!), and filled with pops of colour and simple chic styling, so I have no doubt it will leave you all feeling inspired! Enjoy xox

Who Dan & Holly
Where Old Forest School
Guests 60

How did you meet? We met through a mutual friend who Dan was living with.

In three words describe your wedding style… fun, relaxed, easy

Photo idea: These rings from Stewart Dawsons look fab on a patterned paper background! A great chance to add something that has meaning to you e.g an old letter, photo or drawing by a family member or child.

How beautiful are these bright spring bouquets by Rosies Wildflowers!

What music did you play for those special moments?

Walking down the aisle was Jack Johnson – Better Together, and back up the aisle was Six60 – Forever

What were the save and splurge items for your wedding?

Splurge was the venue and save was decorations which was a win as the venue hardly needs decorating!

Did you DIY?

Not sure if it counts as DIY but with mums help we collected all the china from opshops – what a mish! We also did our own grazing table

What was the most difficult part of planning your wedding? And the most fun?

Difficult – Everyone putting their two cents in! The most fun – Finding a caterer, it called for lots of trials.

Do you have any money saving tips for engaged couples?

Do as little decorating as possible!! People won’t miss it.

Gorgeous Bay of Plenty wedding venue Old Forest School requires little styling, saving you mulah!
