The Wild Hearts Runway shows are designed to be a beautiful showcase of the best in the bridal fashion industry, featuring an incredible line-up of talented bridal, menswear and fashion designers, with the best of the best professional hair and makeup teams behind the scenes.
The Auckland Runway Show was truly beautiful, with Designers from across Australia and New Zealand taking the stage under the magical architecture at The Cloud on Auckland’s waterfront. Dreamy clouds of florals by the amazing Cecilia Fox lined the runway, with white flooring and a white panel backdrop by the team at Flock Events providing a dramatic setting, with chairs from Arkade Hire lined up for our guests to sit and watch the magic.

With makeup by NZ-based organic Makeup brand Blâc Cosmetics and a selection of the best artists from around the region. Hair by Brooke and her talented team at Hare & Hunter, the models looked incredible!
The runway brought a fresh bounce-into-spring feel accompanied by music from Mix It DJ to set the mood. The colours we saw on the runway this year from bridesmaids designers BLAK Bridesmaids and Leave Her Wilder were phenomenal. Vibrant blush, rust, turmeric and plums made for a colourful welcome to this year’s wedding season.
Tying together the wonderful bridal styling were our fantastic accessories. Always a favourite – shoes by Chaos & Harmony, bringing a range of blush tones, pastels and golds to the runway. Amélie George featured gorgeous pearl, silver and gold earrings, perfect for the modern romantic, the latest bags from Saben and two beautiful bouquets by Floral Stylist Co.
The show was a beautiful success and we couldn’t have done it without an amazing and passionate backstage team, all streamlined by backstage manager Jo Mickelborough from Red 11.
