From Meredith Lord Photography – “With spring in New Zealand there is a lot of new growth in the orchards surrounding us, creating a very pretty vista! A super talented florist friend of mine and I got together and did a little editorial shoot amongst the blossoms before it all disappeared.”

From Meredith Lord – “Spring is such a stunning time of year here in Hawke’s Bay. We wanted to keep our inspiration simple and elegant, but also wanted it to emulate the beauty of the blossoming orchard as well.

We styled a little piece of paradise with a single vintage high-back chair, a simple table setting for two, some gorgeous florals and of course our bride and her gown. We choose two bridal looks – one fresh and light with the magnolias and then changed it to add the black for a more edgy look.”
