Hello everyone, I hope you all had a very lovely weekend and wern’t too cold! One of my favourite events leading up to your wedding day is the bridal shower or kitchen tea party, both equally lovely – but what about hosting a delicious brunch? Styled by the very lovely ladies over at Mag Rouge, the delicious doughnuts by the exquisite Artisan Cakes and photographed by the lovely Sutherland Kovach this would easily be the sweetest way to celebrate your upcoming wedding.

Just over a week ago Ben and I and two very good friends of ours had the absolute pleasure of being invited to the re-opening of Abbeville Estate! Until I received the invite I had no idea that this amazing place even existed, tucked in just behind the hustle and bustle of the Auckland airport is the the beautifully calm and manicured gardens of Abbeville Estate – it comes complete with the sweetest little church, beautiful rustic barn and the most welcoming function room I have ever been to. The whole evening was perfect, from the attentive and kind wait staff too the most delicious array of food and sweet treats prepared by the very talented team at The Great Catering Company straight from the Estates delicious veggie garden. To any lovely couples who are starting their wedding planning, be sure to have a look at Abbeville Estate it will take your breath away. x
