We are back!! A happy - and rather belated - New Year to you all! It's our main summer break here in New Zealand which means kids off school and this Mama is busy keeping them entertained! But I'm slowly getting back into work mode and we're excited for the year ahead filled with lots of beautiful wedding inspiration and ideas.

It's always a challenge whittling down all the features into ten or so favourites! I mean we obviously loved them all otherwise we wouldn't have featured them, but naturally there are a handful that stand out to us so we hope you enjoy looking through these beautiful real weddings that we've selected as our favourites from 2022. From a beautiful Southern celebration with the most amazing mismatched bridesmaids' gowns to a wedding in a castle in Sweden, there's so much beautiful inspiration for all of you newly engaged couples.
