May – June – July
Autumn and Winter provide lovely seasonal options for your wedding. We chose June to shoot our brochure photos due to the exceptional colours of the leaves in the vineyard – the fluorescent rust and golden colour in the leaves makes for the most stunning photographs.
Crisp sunny days make for the most beautiful light – nobody is hot and sticky. The groom can keep his jacket on, the bride can accessorise..with fur…gloves…brooches. The likelihood of getting a sunny day is just as high in winter as in summer – but its cooler. The fire can be lit.
The evening can incorporate touches such as a peppery Syrah … port … hot toddies … special coffees… comfort desserts. It’s a more relaxed time of year. There is time to enjoy one another’s company again, joining together for a very special occasion.
Flowers in season are: Winter White Lillies, Vine Prunings, Winter Roses, Gerberas.
At Mudbrick we believe that these months are a little bit of a best kept secret.
View images from this time of year – you will probably be surprised how similiar they look to all the other seasons as far as the weather goes! But the touches are what makes the difference.
If you’re into vintage or enjoy layers and textures and little bit of luxe, consider this time of year. We love candles and candleabras and enjoy the opportunity to light them for you.
We offer some superb wedding rates for winter. The main risk in these months is getting a wet day – but on Waiheke we know that it rains so much less than in Auckland, and very rarely does it rain all day. If ambience and romance is your thing, you can build a lot more layers of luxury in winter and autumn.
If these months do interest you, view our winter wedding deals page, and give us a call, we can show you some spectacular photos of people who have taken the risk and its paid off!
