Tamsin and Peter

We’ve come to the end of our wedding week and I’m a little sad, but thrilled to bring you today’s dramatic wedding! Today’s wedding is the wedding of Tamsin and Peter who met at Tamsin’s brother’s 21st birthday party! The couple chose a Gothic theme for their wedding day – using black, red and white. The drama of their choice was reflected at their church which featured a large organ.

Peter’s daughter acted as flower girl and carried a posy of red roses with a crown of red roses in her hair. All of the wedding flowers were by Nati Bros Rose Farm. Tamsin wore a Peter Trends gown and pearl earrings from Bijoux.

Erin made many of the wedding day details herself. From invitations (including personalised stamps with their parents wedding photos) to programs, personalised welcome brochures and luggage tags for of their guests and thank you cards. One of Erin’s favourite parts was their Polaroid guestbook from Etsy which captured each guest and allowed them to write a sweet message to the couple. For their wedding favors, each guest received a CD of Hawaiian songs.

The venue allowed Erin & Steve to bring in their own alcohol and food, so they had their celebration catered by Comfort Zone Catering on Maui. Guests celebrated under a starlit sky while feasting on cupcakes. Erin and Steve danced their first dance to “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz.
