Keen festival goers, Matt and Jenna went about creating one of their very own to celebrate their wedding. With Captured by Keryn behind the lens and plenty of dancing in gumboots, this epic two-day New Zealand wedstival was just the ticket.
Despite the worst rain they’ve ever seen, their TopKata tipi tents provided a cosy and stylish setting for their ceremony and reception, set up on Jenna’s mum’s farm. “We never had a weather-bomb rain plan. Who knew! In the end the rain made our wedding. It highlighted the beautiful people in our lives and how much they care for us. We pulled together and took on the challenge to not let the rain ruin the festival. The rain also meant that everyone was huddled together in the tents, which made a large wedding feel very intimate.”
Going for a natural, bohemian style for the day with lots of colour and patterns, Matt and Jenna enlisted the help of Nouba faves Two Foxes Styling to deck out their wed fest. Peacock chairs and poufs set the scene, with a macrame ceremony backdrop from Spoonful Design hung from DIY arches.
Going for a full music festival vibe for the weekend, there was a solid line up to entertain their guests. Coachella played during and post-ceremony, and Too Many Chiefs kept people dancing with a late night set. “In typical style, we were the last ones standing on the dance floor, and dragged ourselves off to our tent at 5am!”
