You can’t beat a vintage suitcase.

The perfect receptacle for those much appreciated envelopes of generosity.

Our antique French workbench which doubles as a gift table compliments the Wishing Case superbly.

It’s always exciting to host someone who works in the industry.

And flattering that they choose you.

The groom, Ben, is a wedding videographer, who often collaberates with photographer David Le.

One of my favourite shots of the bridal party walking down Te Hapua Road and David has captured it to a tee.

Sometimes the Stables just sing to you.

Hear their song.

Spring has sprung. Blossom is peeping out from the branches. It’s wedding time.

Charlotte and Shane said their vows on a perfect spring day.

Congratulations to a really beautiful couple.

We have spent the winter refurbishing and totally luxing out Cottage 103 (or should that be LoveNest 103?)

It now boasts a cedar hot tub under the stars, fairy lights and just utter indulgent luxury in and out.

Add to that a picture of #trustygary doing some of the aforementioned work and the story is complete.

More pics to come of the Cottage so bear with.

The best way to celebrate summer is with some live jazz in the Old Caravan Stage.

A perfect combo.
