An al fresco long lunch, inspired by Central Otago Autumn and this stunning private estate. Highlighting good food, great champagne and basking in the afternoon sunlight with your loved ones.

The warmth of Dunedin’s Autumn resonates throughout this dreamy styled shoot. The European influenced estate is dressed with an al fresco tablescape coloured with peaches, soft blush and muted yellows set into the gorgeous estate gardens.

This styled shoot takes us on a journey to a countryside chateau in Beaujolais France with Akarua Wines in 19th century styled modern crystal champagne goblets from Major & Minor making for a romantic touch. Gorgeous, fresh blooms and hand painted stationery grace the long table with accents of apricot and lemon.

Hera Couture dresses overflow with wispy movement and the gorgeous pleated tulle detachable sleeves elevate a romantic gown paired with the grooms Omen Suit Hire classic black bowtie look.
