Today’s gorgeous Waikato Wedding combines minimalist industrial vibes and wild and wonderful florals with luxe gold tones in a colour palette good enough to eat! The couple cleverly saved some budget by skipping favors (I’m all for this!), diy for their stationery, handing out invites instead of posting (love this!), and doing their own grazing table. Beautifully captured by Kelly Oliver Photography this wedding is perfect for all lovers of simple weddings that still feel luxe! Enjoy xox
Who Sophie + Anthony Coffey
Our love story began… nearly 4 years ago. After knowing each other for quite a few years prior we got chatting after we went to a summer shape shifter concert at Waihi beach together with our mutual friends and the rest is history!
I said yes… on our 3 year anniversary overlooking raglan beach on a bloody good evening . Ants not very romantic but he fed his girl a feed of fish and chips and got down on one knee. It was just perfect.
Our wedding style inspiration was… I’d like to say minimal and classy. Used gold throughout and had the colour in the flowers!
We saved by… not having wedding favors, using Etsy for the invites and printing them ourselves, handing out invites instead of posting, doing our own grazing table, my wonderful dad made our beautiful arch , keeping the atrium ‘simple’ and admiring its natural beauty there and at the walkway.
We splurged on… having video and photographer , buying the grooms mans and the bridesmaids outfits etc.
Our advice to engaged couples… get your a into g and get things sorted quickly so you can relax the weeks before ! Especially the girls! Don’t fuss on all the small extra things you can get for a wedding – it all adds up .. fast!! Keep your wedding list to who you want and who makes you happy as a couple. Enjoy your day it’s true it goes so fast!
