April 23, 2016

What a week! If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that for the last 7 days, we’ve been celebrating all things New Zealand on the blog and social media. While we’ve always been great mates with our nearest neighbours we wanted to make things official, declaring Nouba as an Australian AND New Zealand wedding blog.

Some of our Kiwi buddies have been getting the party going over on Instagram, with a series of NZ-centric takeovers. Bayly & Moore took us on a tour of their favourite wild locations, Danelle Bohane introduced us to her industry pals and Lu Diamond Flowers showcased some stunning botanic creations.

Needless to say, it’s been a busy week on our most-loved social platform and we want to keep the buzz going by sharing some of our favourite feeds to follow. From adventure-seeking photographers to boundary-pushing florists and globally-adored designers… New Zealand hardly seems big enough to contain so much talent! We could list hundreds of amazing creatives here, but have narrowed down the lineup to our top 25 New Zealand Instagram feeds. Enjoy!
