French Kitchen Wedding | Rachel & Tom

We almost ventured to the four corners of Auckland on Rach & Toms wedding day, beginning with the North Shore and a driving range full of groomsmen.
It was then further north to hang with Rach, her bridesmaids and a flower girl. Who also had a dinosaur costume for her stint down the aisle. Very rad.
Kumeu, West Auckland was where they were hitched and what a beautiful venue it was. Vintage styling, hanging chandeliers and comfy couches to boot.
Last but not least, amidst a down pouring of rain we escaped to the ever-so-sophisticated French Kitchen in Auckland City. An intimate sit down dinner with close friends and family surrounded by gorgeous candlelight and of course, the most delectable menu. These guys know how to wed.


Rachel wore a perfectly designed and fitted dress made by her darling friend Becky Blackshaw. Shoes to match were from Mi Piaci and hair and makeup, Ashlee Kellett from Beauty On Demand.
To dinner, Rachel wore pants by Pearl and a top from Veronica Maine
Rachel's trio of bridesmaids and of course one female groomsman wore dresses from ASOS that she hand-dyed in various shades of green. Dress belts and beading were all made and sewn by a friend.
Tom and his groomsmen donned suits by Working Style and shirts were Nicholas Jermyn. Their shoes were Country Road.
Bride and grooms rings were both uniquely designed and made from Diamonds On Richmond.
Ashley Hibbard from Southern Belle worked her magic with flowers, planning, styling and decor. 
Celebrant, Helen Rutledge and cake by Jessie from Creative Cakes.
Ceremony was held at Allely Estate in Kumeu and the reception was at The French Kitchen, the private dining area at The French Cafe.
Wedding favours were hand made concrete pots each filled with succulents from Rachel's nana's garden.
