Red Barn styled wedding shoot: rustic, boho romance.


Sitting amongst the tranquil Hinuera farmland is the utterly captivating and iconic building of The Red Barn wedding venue. A bunch of crazily talented Waikato wedding creatives, alongside Emma from Sweet Events Photography (working her magic behind the lens), sort out to capture romance around the originally built livery stable and share the dreamy atmosphere it has to offer.

Clusters of wild flowers in beautiful bursts of colour, and styled stationery with touches of old world wax seals and silk ribbon sung against the dark raw tones of the stone and timber textures. The sun lit the brassy golds of the styled table and rich coloured poached pears sat perfectly atop the layers of a drizzled caramel sauced wedding cake. Dressed in effortlessly romantic Astra Bridal gowns, Ashley radiated absolute beauty and blissful emotion.
