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.
