An Engagement Party

Valentines Day, a fitting day to announce on the blog that Ollie and I are engaged. Just as he is about to leave our fair shores, we were able to celebrate, and what better way than on Waitangi Day with friends, food and champagne? It was a truly awesome party, and we had the amazing Anna Kidman taking photos for us. You can check out more of her work at Belle Bebe. I think she perfectly captured the day. We had bruschetta with pea, mint and feta, caramelised onion, thyme and goats cheese, tomatoes and basil as well as home made pita crisps and hummus, bellinis with cream cheese, dill and smoked salmon, breads, olive oils, cheeses, olives and pesto as well as some delicious sweet treats made by a variety of friends. I could not have done it without the help of my bridesmaid Nicole who even scrubbed the bathroom for me. What more could you ask for from a friend?
