Claire and Brad's romantic and whimsical New Zealand wedding, held on a balmy late summer evening, was brimming with vintage-chic style and elegance. The couple said their vows in a pebbled courtyard surrounded by towering palms, followed by an English tea party-inspired reception where they were treated to a host of heartfelt speeches and toasts from family and friends. Throughout the evening, guests sipped bubbly from vintage champagne bowls, and were treated to music from a string quartet - which even played recent pop hits!
