Abbie & Joh's Stoneridge Estate Wedding

Abbie and Joh were one of the first to hear about our new services and enlisted our Helping Hands package for the set-up and finishing touches of their wedding reception at Stoneridge Estate. Abbie also had a spectacular installation of fairylights throughout the Hayes room, to help brighten and transform the room in to the magic, beautiful space she envisioned for their night. Ever After Photography was kind enough to share some of their gorgeous set up photos with us, to pass on to you.

Bruna & Thiago's Garden Wedding

Bruna and Thiago wed in April this year, and put together a gorgeous garden ceremony and marquee reception at Trelawn Place. Even with a few clouds in the sky, their lucky guests had the most breathtaking view of the Shotover River and surrounding mountains, all the more beautiful with our rustic wooden arch and The Flower Room's chic floral styling.

Bruna chose our wine barrel bar with wooden slab, mason jar drinks dispenser and silver buckets to set the scene at cocktail hour, while our candelabras, "bride" and "groom" sign, wine barrels, walnut table numbers and custom seating plan chalkboard helped to transform their dining space into a lovely space for family and friends to wine, dine and dance the night away!

See below for some detail-shots of their day, thanks to Bruna for sending them through to us and Esther at The Moment Addict for the great images. :)

Kate & Pete's Secret Garden Wedding + Review

Kate and Pete were married in January this year and approached us with an amazing idea to transform Arrowtown Hall into an enchanted, candlelit garden and we were happy to take on the task!

We are so proud to share these photos of the work Al did in the hall...hanging drapes and festoon lights from the ceiling and glass orbs behind the head table. 

Kate was kind enough to write us a detailed review to share as well:

Thanks to Ruth from Fluid Photo for the photos and Gypsy from The Vase for the florals/greenery.

kate peter 10

 

In particular, I would want to thank and give accolades to Al. He was fantastic from go to woah. The hall would not have been able to be transformed to the degree it was without him. I had grand ideas - I mean grand - for the massive plain space and as you can tell from the photos, we got there in the end! Al worked tirelessly to make this happen and really helped me in the setting up Bridezilla moments, when little bits and pieces needed done. We had a "garland gate" moment or two where I had a team working with fresh greenery to make the garlands and Al completely went with me on getting these hung to complete the candle lit garden light theme I was after. 

 

The draping was beautiful and he really did a spectacular job despite time pressures and a grand plan from me. He worked very well with all my other suppliers and went the extra mile in the end by noticing an ugly green exit sign above the orbs behind the bridal table and coming up with a super last minute signage save there (he will know what I'm talking about)! 

 

I loved the draping, the orbs, the entrance - all of it. We had locals and tourists alike peeping their heads in the day before and on the day to site the finished product. 

 

Many local guests commented they had never seen the hall set up like it over decades of attending there, and it really was a complete and entire transformation with every one "buying in" to the final look and theme. 

 

At night, the lighting looked spectacular and so serene. From the start I felt like Al was a friend rather than a vendor and was completely comfortable running around like a mad woman with friends and bridesmaids - with occasional token input from the groom!! - while Al toiled away in the background.

 

kate peter 11

kate peter 13

I know I asked a lot of QWH/Al, and was so impressed with him, I invited him to our day after drinks, as by then all of my set up crew, bridesmaids and other vendors had certainly developed a friendship!

 

Our wedding took place over three seperate venues of three different styles (Stoneridge, the hall and Wharenui Estate) over 2-3 days but the common theme was the greenery and landscape and Al, working with Gypsy my florist - made that theme consistent and a reality as of course the hall was the biggest, plainest most challenging space to tackle, as in no way did I want it to actually look like a "hall"!! No small ask! 

 

"Al Dog/Big Al/Al" - you are a legend and we are super grateful to have come across you personally and Queenstown Wedding Hire in our planning and set up, and are really grateful for the extra mile you went in making it all happen for us. The photography speaks for itself as to what was achieved.  Kate & Pete

Casey & Aaron's Perfect Autumnal Wedding

Casey & Aaron chose April and the beginning of Autumn to commit themselves to one another, amidst Queenstown's beautiful tamed wilderness. Saying their vows beneath our beloved wooden arch at Canyon's Lodge, with dainty décor surrounding the ceremony and gorgeous blooms by The Flower Room. Holly Wallace captured all of the magic and more, with the light of dusk and a floor of leaves in Spearglass Flats, before moving to Gantley's restaurant where the newly-weds and their guests could mingle around an open fire, a DIY s'more station AND a cookie counter!

The Winehouse | Venue Series

Next in our venue series is The Winehouse! ♡

Our wedding in Queenstown 473

 

 Jim Pollard Photography

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nestled in the Gibbston 'Valley of Vines' and adjacent to the Kawarau Bridge, the homestead has spectacular views of the mountain range, rugged Otago scenery and  bridal veil waterfall as well as offering a romantic and private experience. The historic homestead is absolutely full of charm, from its tree-lined entrance to bright red roof and flower-filled gardens.

A perfectly-manicured croquet lawn offers a perfect, sun-filled location to host a garden ceremony, with space behind to serve guests cocktails and canapés, and to play lawn games while guests socialise before moving to the reception.

Moving through to the homestead, a courtyard pavilion has recently been renovated to boast beautiful bay windows, French doors and a stonework floor - letting sunshine through all the while keeping the venue dry and free from any gusts of wind. The pavilion can seat up to 250 people and has views on one side to forest-covered hills and on the other side to the Winehouse's lovely gardens. The main house has a bar inside, space for a dance floor, more private rooms for children to play in and modern, spacious bathrooms.

Sarah + Rich's Bright Queenstown Wedding

One big ol' reminiscent blogpost coming your way!

Sarah & Rich were married at Jacks Point almost two years ago now, and their perfect summer's day is still a standout for us. With brilliantly turquoise bridesmaid dresses, bright pinks and peaches in the floral designs and so many gorgeous details we can't help but go gooey-eyed over the pictures, while feeling an ache that reminds us how much we already miss dressing up Jacks Point Clubhouse for weddings... But we also love-love-love this wedding for another reason - the groom's father built the arch especially for their Sarah & Rich's wedding ceremony, and we are lucky enough to now have it as part of our collection!! ♡

Peregrine Winery | Venue Series

First up in our new venue series is Peregrine Winery! ♡

Ceremony 9 copy4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Set amidst the Gibbston Valley and Kawarau Gorge, the winery is sat on a valley floor, soon meeting rolling hills at the base of the southern edge of the Crown Ranges. It not only boasts a magnificent and unparalleled view of the gorgeous Queenstown-Central Otago region, but Peregrine's architecturally acclaimed 'Wing' is a venue like no other. Soaring above the blank canvas of Peregrine's prime venue, offering both shelter and sunlight, the modern building is all kinds of versatile and can host up to 180 guests for a seated dinner.

If the magnificent Wing isn't quite your piece of cake, or even if you just want another space for after-dinner drinks and dancing, Peregrine's historic woolshed is right next door and just as special (it dates back to the 1860s - when we said historic, we meant it!). The woolshed has schist stone walls, exposed wooden beams and heavy doors...it's charm is enough to match any Pinterest board. 

Woolshed Peregrine BlogAIC FD 472

 

 

Emily Adamson Photography 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peregrine has a beautiful bare lawn in front of the wing, with almost panoramic views of the rolling hills and rocky slopes that Central Otago is known for.
While couples often opt to have their ceremony offsite, at places like Thurlby Domain or a Chapel, the front lawn has ample space to set up for a ceremony and cocktail hour.

Sophia + Dan's Intimate Fall Wedding

Brilliant jewel-toned florals amidst valleys of fog and tree-covered hillsides set the mood for Sophia & Dan's intimate wedding. With a ceremony at Canyon's Lodge, portraits at Moke Lake and later, a reception at Eichardt's, this is one beautiful love affair. Captured by one of our QWH faves Rich Bayley Photography and with flowers by The Flower Room.

Sarah + Jandre's Jacks Point Wedding

In the midst of Autumn, Sarah & Jandre put together a gorgeous, elegant and graceful wedding ceremony and reception at one of our favourite venues, Jacks Point clubhouse. While the snow hadn't yet covered the Remarkables, it was a bluebird day and the sun was shining, bringing a subtle but breathtaking style of décor to the centre of attention. For this wedding we installed three custom setups - beautiful glass orbs hanging along the windowfront, rustic shelves hung above the fireplaces and fairylights decorating the foyer. Paired with wine barrels, candles, chalkboard art and Studio 24 Florist's amazing flower power, it was one picture perfect celebration.

Different ways to frame your ceremony | Ideas Blog

No matter how much you are looking forward to the big ol' party you get to dive into after your vows, taking the time to really think about your ceremony and what it means to you is important. It's not just the oversized picture frame that will boast your first wedded kiss, but an intimate moment you and your partner share, to exchange your commitment to each other and the true meaning of your relationship. It's also a place you can create to reflect your style as a pairing, which may be easy-going and boho, devilish DIYers or sophisticated cowboys and girls...Whatever it is, it sets the scene when your guests arrive and await your arrival, and for what they should expect at the reception dinner and first dance, and a complementary overall aesthetic will help your whole event (and photo album) flow beautifully. Not to mention it will be one of the most photographed elements of your whole shibang!

We wanted to share a blogpost that delves into the somewhat forgotten ways of defining your altar - without a wooden, wrought iron or leafy archway.

Wine barrels
A modern trend that you can design in a rustic, whimsical or sophisticated way yet clearly and unobtrusively dedicates a space for your altar.

Plinths
A classic yet still popular (and amazing!) choice is placing two plinths either side of your aisle, whether it be at the entrance or where you stand to say your vows. These can be beautifully decorated with urns, flower centrepieces, lanterns or other décor suited to your wedding and personality.

A simple, gorgeous way to decorate both your wedding aisle and ceremony space. Mix it up with different textures, sizes and shades of your lanterns.

Bunting
The ultimate DIY project, one that can be made precisely to suit your wedding aesthetic and to later decorate your dance floor, wedding brunch or home! Tag your friends, family and bridal party to help out and put together a crafty afternoon to lighten your 'To-Do' list before stress sets in.

Nothing says fun and fancy-free like a string of colourful paper flags, and they make for an utterly cute backdrop, too!

Willow and orbs
Define your altar with a classic but dreamy combination of willow...you could ask a talented florist to design a willow arch, or simply have it standing in vases eitherside of you.

Candles
An absolutely gorgeous, romantic and jaw-dropping backdrop for your vows is an unrivaled collection of candles. Of course, you will need to check that your venue allows an open flame, but if it does, some serious consideration for this amazing aisle centrepiece is needed. Vases, candles and maybe a staircase and you can have this all for yourself!

Trees
If you have the luck of marrying on a private estate with a huge tree, or your venue has lawns or a garden with a shady tree...you can create some serious magic alongside Mother Nature. Whether it be decking the entire tree out in fairy lights, draping festoon lights under the canopy, hanging jars of candles and blooms, or anything your heart desires.

Lights
Fancy yourself a jaw-dropping, magic on a blank canvas ceremony? Look no further than suspended pendant, festoon and fairy lights. Creating a cool but chic and beautiful but unique ceremony is no harder than hiring some awesome lighting and bringing your own statement along - whether it be giant helium balloons spelling LOVE or an epic collection of photoframes, piles of books or knick knacks!

Isn't this a brilliant combination of industrial-come-modern-come-happiness-come-BEAUTY?! Mix it up or inspire your own ceremony space with our own pretty cool festoon lights.

Ladders and old door frames
A fantastic twist on the wooden arbour trend, making an archway out of two ladders or vintage, distressed door frames and decorating each with candles, flowers, books, whatever makes you happy!

Ladders2 Emily martin wedding4892529f9831620509fe2bbe95331549Old doors

 

Bear with us, while we don't have suitable ladders to hire yet, we still wanted to provide all the inspo possible!! A backdrop that can be kept simple with clean draping and greenery, or detail upon detail such as candles, jars of flowers, even pre-loved books can be added on each step...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As above... decorate with our miscellaneous bottles and vases to fill either candlelight or flowers :) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Find an old abandoned, maybe broken doorway lying in the back of your shed? Put it to good use and create your own, one-off entryway for your ceremony. A perfect and gorgeous way to frame your wedding.
