Well done NZ! It is excellent news we are finally able to reach level two in NZ. This means that you can marry your sweetheart with up to 98 friends and family around you.
I have already married couples at level three so I am very conscious of the rules and regulations that need to be maintained so can guide you with what is needed for your ceremony.
You have set your big day. Now to decide what type of theme you would like for your wedding. You can have a subtle flavour of your theme throughout your wedding or go all out.
I recently was luckily to marry Lisa and Kane (pictured) in a medieval style wedding at a real castle! Most of the guests were dressed up and it was great. My bespoke wedding ceremony I created for them reflected the theme. I have a steampunk wedding coming up which will be fun!
I was first approached by Glenn as he wanted to do something special for Kelly. Life had been busy for them both he wanted to make sure Kelly knew what she meant to him. After 15 years of marriage it was time to renew this lovely couples' wedding vows.
We had a wonderful session where I heard their love story and all about their journey. Glenn set about making arrangements for possible ideas for their Vow Renewal Day.
The setting was breathtaking in rural South Canterbury for Anna and Hamish. Grace Bolton, from Grace Bolton Photography, captured some fantastics memories of this gorgeous large, rustic wedding. Their whole day flowed beautifully. Anna and Hamish had a bespoke, personalised ceremony that featured a live singer, a horse and their fur baby
There were some clouds in the sky which helped cool the searing sun, creating a beautiful summers day. Anna arrived on a magnificent horse, led by her father, followed by her bridesmaids and fur-baby, Macy.
The story of Ben and Mhairi's Scottish Wedding with a hand fasting, Kingsdown Manor, Timaru Kingsdown Manor and Chapel Centre was the perfect location for Ben and Mhairi's Scottish themed wedding. In keeping with their heritage, a hand fasting enactment was included after the exchange of rings.
Their whole family was involved in including Toby, their much loved fur baby. The day began with a little drizzle which stopped an hour before the wedding and the sky was perfect for the photos. Brad Reeve Photography captured their special moments for their wedding day.
Mhairi and Ben had a personalised ceremony that captured their essence and their love story. They wrote their own vows which were very moving.
