The proposal started as a normal weekend away camping. Nic’s not really the romantic type, and totally surprised me on a morning walk along the beach when he pulled out a vintage ring he’d chosen. After I said yes, we celebrated with coffees from the local camp shop. It was perfect and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
Japanese artisan shoemaker Keitaro Takano of Clematis visited New Zealand last week, being hosted at Crane Brothers‘ High Street store where an exhibition of Clematis shoes was held and a workroom set up for shoemaking and shoe shining demonstrations. Guests to the trunk show were treated to divine catering from Ebisu and other beautiful and refined Japanese touches.
How much do you love our cover?! Hopefully as much as we do! We’re big believers in trying something new, and when we had a go at laying this pic up, we felt the joy just emanating up off the page. We think it’s really ‘us’ – chic but playful, authentic yet stylish, utterly unique, packed with emotion and imagination… and lots and lots of love! These stunning images were taken by Danelle Bohane and they were taken at an actual wedding (the wedding of James & Georgia) which we have featured inside.
