Eclectic, fun and totally rock star. The descriptive we would not only give to our beautiful Couture Bride Chelsea and her groom Tipene but also to their insanely cool Wedding!
Their day was filled with absolutely incredible elements. Full of colour, nostalgia and tradition from the exquisite mismatched antique velvet clad furniture to the ceremony featuring Groom Tipene in traditional Maori adornment.
Chelsea's couture creation features an exquisite hand draped svelte high neck bodice and a high drama skirt, featuring hundreds of draped ruffles. Each ruffle lovingly gathered and then applied to her insanely large circle skirt cascading into a full train. The beautifully draped bodice features a low back, full corsetry and beautiful ruffled over the shoulder sleeve.
Ruffle adorned bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride gowns truely created the most epic canvas of colour making the stunnnning Bride and dapper Groom truely stand out!
We're absolutely IN LOVE with these exquisite shots of their amazing day!
