Taranaki Wedding Vendors

'Taranaki Weddings' is an amazing hub for all things wedding related & lots of hard-working vendors.

At the end of this year's summer season, a group of us collaborated to make something special...a photoshoot showcasing a new venue, beautiful bridal gowns, bespoke jackets, yummy cakes, fresh & jewelled blooms, tutus, celebrants, table decor, wedding gifts & bridesmaid attire. Phew!

Once again, the weather was magnificent & the view from Avista Heights was breathtaking.; a panorama stretching from the Sugarloaves to the White Cliffs. 

A special twist on the day was that our 'bride' & 'groom' models became an actual bride & groom!  Zara, the bride, told us that she'd never had the opportunity to wear a real wedding dress as they'd been married in a registry office. So, she sprang the news of a vow renewal on a quite unsuspecting husband!

If you're planning a wedding, make your first port of call the Taranaki Weddings website & check out the talented list of vendors in the directory.
