Selina + Rhys Wedding Photography @ Cedar Creek Winery

The Proposal

"We were in New Zealand for a wedding/holiday and before we left we booked a few activities like a wine tour, throwing ourselves off a cliff on a swing and gondola ride up a mountain to have dinner looking over Queenstown.
Rhys had organised with friends of ours to come to dinner with us, but little did I know he had them in on the plan to propose,
The ride up the mountain was beautiful and when we got to the top Rhys wanted to head up past the restaurant to get photos with the gorgeous views of Queenstown, this wasn’t anything out of the ordinary because we had been taking photos all week but this time was different... after posing for our photo Rhys took my hands and spun me around to face him and got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife, with tears running down my cheeks I said YES and Rhys being the thinker he is had our friends videoing and taking photos of the whole thing "

The ceremony and reception was held at Cedar Creek Winery. Selina chose a Luv Bridal Brighton by Mia Solano and was inspired by romance and lace for her wedding gown "It was the first dress I put on in this store and I was sold"

Make up was done by her Brides Maids Crystal and Lisa, Flowers by Tilly

Theming and Decoration:

"I wanted a soft romantic feel to our decorations so candles was a must with greenery to make it pop and a gold to make it shine

NEWLY WED ADVICE (for other couples planning their wedding): do what you want to do and don’t listen to any negative feed back as it is your day and it should be exactly how you want it to be.
Stick to a budget
And try to enjoy the planning instead of stressing- Selina & Rhys
