Wild Hearts Wedding Fair Auckland 2022 Recap

The highly anticipated Wild Hearts Wedding Fair returned to Auckland and what a magical day it was!

With a collective of over 60 vendors and an array of talented designers and industry leaders, this was an event not to be missed. A stunning setting right on Auckland’s waterfront, the creativity and talent on show was arguably the most impressive fair to date. 

The Cloud was transformed into a truly beautiful space, and this is credited to the wonderful vendors, who took the time and effort to style their spaces to perfection. The level of creativity was just outstanding!

We want to thank our partners at Wild Hearts who did an excellent job at organising and coordinating such a lovely event for our New Zealand vendors and couples planning their weddings. We always look forward to Wild Hearts events and after a few years of covid cancellations, the 2022 Auckland fair was a beautiful way to mark a new season and celebrate a sense of normality returning to the wedding industry.

The VIPs were treated to a luxe space inside our Together Journal VIP Haven, beautifully styled with furniture by Flock Events and florals by Floral Stylist Co. The TJ haven was bustling with activity throughout the entirety of the day, with VIP guests sipping on delicious Scapegrace cocktails served by the team at Good Spirits. On offer were delicious canapés and oysters from the Cote Catering Oyster Cart, which proved to be hugely popular. Plus the Wild Hearts guests were lucky to get a first look at Together Journal Issue #28 which was officially launched at Wild Hearts. 

Attendees were spoilt for choice with an afternoon filled with inspiration, fashion, food and incredible giveaways. On offer were fragrance workshops by Benny at World, the most beautiful cocktail bar from the team at Good Spirits, a fun photo booth from Modo Booth, cake tasting, mini cinema experiences  and the return of our Industry Panel hosted by Greta Kenyon – our Founder & Editor of Together Journal, where guests could enjoy talks from Karen Walker, Murray Crane from Crane Brothers, Bek Anderson from Chaos & Harmony and Benny Castles from WORLD Brand

Stunning floral installations were on show by the talented Sue from Floral Stylist Co, a wildly beautiful floral entrance installation by Little Leaf Florals and a spectacular Runway floral installation by Cecelia Fox. Special mention also goes to Flock Events for the beautiful furniture throughout the venue and Arkade for the use of their chairs for Runway and h.studio for design and print of all of the gorgeous fair signage. 

A big thank you to the talented team at Hollow & Co who captured the below images for us.
