Set amidst the wild beauty and mountainous extremes of Lake Hawea in the South Island of New Zealand we find two young lovers running wild and free.

This secluded spot calls for a natural elegance – the perfect setting for an intimate gathering. The tablescape has quiet beauty; accents of wood, ceramics and brass adornments including candle holders and vases that tie in perfectly with the subtle blue and grey colour palette that complements the panoramic views and surroundings. A focus on delicate dried blooms and wild foliage add a graceful but natural touch, and the raw beauty of the styling elements compliment the landscape.
