Wellington Region’s Finest to be Featured in Well Travelled Bride Campaign

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND, December 18, 2015 - From the rolling hills of the Wairarapa to the shores of the Tasman Sea, Yvette Edwards and Kelsey Genna, co-founders of the soon-to-launch Well Travelled Bride website, are gearing up for their latest project to be shot in and around the Wellington Region from Sunday 20th.

The photoshoot will take place over 3 days and the campaign will be shot at multiple locations around Wellington such as Boomrock and Wharekauhau with such sponsors being featured like Poppies of Martinborough, Wellington Helicopters, Goodbuzz Brewing, Tailor Skincare, I Love Paris, Stacks Furniture, Chef Elizabeth Marshall, Logan Brown, Edgemont St. Eatery, Museum Hotel, and Mt. Victoria, The Intercontinental, Carly Harris, Twenty Seven Names, Shoozies and Scotties.

“It's wonderful to be able to bring together the most talented business people in the Wellington Region and give them a place to reach an international market through Well Travelled Bride,” said Yvette.

"We have a fabulous shoot series lined up for this week, our strong team of local creatives led by photographer Sarah Burton. Both Yvette and I being Wellington natives, we are excited to showcase the unique culture and world-class talent that comes out of Wellington"

The vision behind Well Travelled Bride is to reveal the best ideas for elopements and weddings in a specific locale, sharing local knowledge and showcasing local vendors across the wedding, event, lifestyle and tourism industries. Past shoots have already been shot on location in Bali as well as in Wanaka. The Well Travelled Bride website will launch in early 2016, but you can keep up with Yvette and Kelsey’s adventures by following them on Facebook or on Instagram (@welltravelledbride).
