Wild Hearts Auckland 2019 Wedding Fair Recap

Wow! What a day Auckland. With over 60 talented vendors, the best sponsors and an amazing lineup of designers and industry leaders, we knew Auckland was going to go off with a bang! We had the most incredible day at Auckland’s Shed 10 last Sunday, with the talent and creativity of everyone involved totally eclipsing our expectations. For those who couldn’t make it, we wanted to share a recap on all of the magic that happened on the weekend at our 3rd Wild Hearts Auckland Wedding Fair.

Collaborating with top industry professionals, we made sure Shed 10 was styled like never before. Each and every vendor styled their space so beautifully, we were blown away by the creativity of everybody involved on the day and would like to thank our vendors whole-heartedly for putting in so much effort that was easy to see in the beauty they created! Our always amazing Together Journal VIP Haven was booming all day with VIP guests enjoying Master Of Ceremonies Rosé and canapés by Free Range Chef. As well as getting a little pampering by the team at Bobbi Brown and Jo Malone London, our VIP guests were also the first to see the beautiful new Together Journal x An Organised Life Planner – which was launched at Wild Hearts over the weekend!

Guests were also treated to delights around every corner, with pop-up bars, treats to try and floral workshops by Rosie at Rose Tinted Flowers. We also had stunning floral installations by the talented Sue from Floral Stylist Co and golden chairs by Darby & Grey, and big white backdrop by Roller Coaster Design were a feature for this year’s Wild Hearts Runway – which you will see more of in our Runway Recap next week.

Also, a big thank you to the talented photographers who captured the below images for us:  Hill Collective,  and Stories By Bianca and we can’t wait to share the highlights video by Jonny Scott with you very soon.

A HUGE thank you must also go to all of our Wild Hearts Auckland sponsors, vendors, designers, behind the scenes teams, hire vendors, foodies, venue staff, our Wild Crew and our amazing guests – the day was all we had dreamed and more! See and read more below about this incredible day….

We’re so excited for our next three locations – Christchurch September 7th, Queenstown September 29th and we are back in even MORE locations for 2020! Tickets for all of these locations are available from our Events Page so get your tickets now. We can’t wait for you to run wild with us…..

Beks AndersonChaos & Harmony

Over 10 years ago, Chaos & Harmony’s Creative Director and Founder, Beks Anderson and her husband sold everything they owned and moved to Italy so Beks could learn to design shoes at the Instituo Europeo di Design in Rome. She was taught by tutors who’d worked at Valentino and Fendi, among others, and learned how to infuse her lifelong love of texture, materials and leathers into comfortable, high-quality, hand-made shoes.

Twelve months later they returned to Mount Maunganui and created Chaos & Harmony - a market-leading, boutique shoe company. The name Chaos & Harmony reflects our love of textures to create depth – it brings about a curious contradiction. It also subtly sums up a woman’s world!
