Blossom & a Baby


This springtime styled shoot was the brainchild of a wonderful bunch of superhero women: Mustard Folk, Toni Larson Photography, Hellebore Design and Te Puna (that's us!).


Despite it's stunning beauty, this setting is actually a budget conscious option for an intimate gathering, easily built upon by adding more tables and filling the space with lots of friends and family (this shoot only used half the venue so there's plenty more to play with!).


Pictured above is our gorgeous ladder lighting feature (removable if it's not to your tastes - but how could it not be?) and one of our wonderfully rustic bar leaners (more of these on the way!), these elements are perfectly balanced alongside Helen's (from Hellebore Design) beautiful blooms.


The Main Venue is a versatile space with a range of beautiful features to compliment your creative vision. Pictured above are wooden beams and pillars, concrete floors, white panel walls and corrugated iron ceilings. Kylie's (Mustard Folk) trestles, chairs and place settings have a stunning simplicity and sense of romance against the Te Puna backdrop.


Te Puna's collection of furniture and chattels is growing all the time, two of our beautiful lounge pieces are pictured above. We also have outside benches, black chiavari chairs, tables, wooden pews... the list goes on!


It wasn't long before baby Evangeline took the limelight and became the star of the show. As mascots go, we're pretty sure she's the most adorable one we've ever seen!


Baby Evie is the li'l munchkin of Sam and Gráinne Read. They're the muscle and the brains behind Te Puna Venue and are looking forward to welcoming you to their spot of secluded farmy paradise!
