New Zealand wedding with vintage cars
New Zealand's remarkable views offer plenty of scenic backdrops for your wedding day. That's an unmistakable fact as you can see from Real Bride Harriet's picturesque New Zealand wedding. Lush rolling hills and the water's edge with mountains in the distance; vintage cars and their sweet daughter donning a floral wreath crown, everything about her wedding just felt natural yet perfectly stylized.
Harriet's big day was surrounded by nature's beauty and a family's love. Here is what she had to say about her special day: 
"David and I were married on the 25 March at a place called Waimarama Beach, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. My grandparents had a family home at the beach and we were married on the front lawn. They passed way 3 years ago and their ashes are scattered on the island you can see behind us in the photos - so they were there on the day we like to think, watching from the island. Our daughter Marley was a flower girl and she will be given my veil when she gets older as a family heirloom."
What an amazing place to get married!! Scroll below to see all the beauty from this Real Bride's wedding!
Harriet's mantilla veil was a custom order but will soon be available in the shop! It is ivory and available in fingertip or cathedral length. If you would like to inquire about this veil please click here.
