Lucy and Allistair

Living overseas and planning a wedding is never easy! Luckily Lucy and Allistair had an incredible team of vendors who made their day so special even though New Zealand was shutting down due to the Covid pandemic. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, they lost a bridesmaid, a groomsman and majority of the groom’s family due to the border restrictions. Despite everything, they decided to go ahead with their wedding as planned and had the most perfect day ever!

Lucy fell in love with our Makaira gown from our Oriental Affair Collection but preferred a slim fitting sleeve. She loved the idea of having a two looks with the silk-chiffon and tulle overskirt giving her a beautiful train which could be removed later on to reveal a floor length party dress.
