THE PROPOSAL
The proposal happened on our 4 year anniversaryreal wedding
in Orewa. We had planned the weekend away at a beachfront resort. The weather turned bad so we spent the night in with wine and an antipasto platter. I had run a bath when Nigel got down on one knee, bringing me to tears, screaming YES!

SPECIAL MENTION
Mum Lesley, dad Kelvin, sister Sian and brother Leighton. My wonderful nanna Doreen. My wonderful bridesmaids Sarah, Kelly Andrea did a fantastic job

VOWS
Their vows were very short and sweet. The bride memorised hers to make them easier to remember; this proved a success on the day. Their celebrant read out a little story each of them had sent to him about each other.

GENERAL
The bride did all the decorating and sourced the décor herself, having table runners & chair sashes made to fit the furniture at the venue. The flower boxes were made by her brother and she purchased 40 candles for mood lighting as night set in. There were flowers galore – hydrangea, daisy, several types of roses, and toi toi. They hung from the ceiling, covered two arches, ran down the aisle, were on tables both inside and outside; they hung on the wall behing the bridal table, were worn by the bride in her hair and could be spotted on the cake.
