Laura and James embraced the unique vibe of The Vitrine for their whimsical glam wedding. They dressed up their vintage shop venue with plenty of blooms and pops of pink, including Laura’s hair (we are obsessed!). These design-forward lovebirds, who own a dog collar design shop called Dogs of Desire, communicated their vision to Amanda Norwood Design, who went above and beyond their expectations. The day wouldn’t have been complete without Chasewild there photographing all the important details and sweetness between Laura and James!
Laura and James
The Vitrine, Auckland, New Zealand
My advice would be to hire a wedding stylist/planner and make sure that you communicate a clear vision to them.
We are vegetarian, so had an array of veggie dishes from Monday’s Wholefoods, as well as salmon to keep the meat eaters happy. We went with self serve table platters to keep everything more relaxed.
We just tried to reflect the style that was try to achieve in our own house and lives. White, clean, and fresh with pops of beauty and colour. We adore pink.
We DIY’d the dog’s collars – they were made by our label, Dogs of Desire.
Laura wanted to go for clean whimsical. Pink hair was the basis for the style and everything else followed. James was fresh, well tailored and polished while staying true to his taste. Laura adored her hair and the fit of the dress was stunning. The earrings really finished the outfit off also.
We surprised out guests by announcing our pregnancy on the day of our wedding! And just welcomed our little girl a couple of weeks ago.
