We got married in Pauanui in the Coromandel, which is Ricky's hometown.
His family has a lot of history there and we have spent many holidays, and weekends there over the years so its a special place for us with lots of memories.
Our wedding was a mixture of relaxed beach and romantic whimsical with lots of fresh flowers, greenery and a big clear marquee so you could feel at one with the surroundings (farmland, trees etc ) and were able to see the starry sky at night.
I love the minimal theme so I didn't have too many decorations, just fresh flowers and greenery. Pinterest, Instagram, other friends weddings, together journal and other bridal magazines
Expectation and Reality.
All we expected, and received, was big celebration with everyone we love.
Everyone says how fast it goes and I don't think you can appreciate it until its your turn but we made sure there were a few slow moments where we could just step back and feel so grateful for all the amazing people in our lives who were there just for us.
From One Bride To Another.
Delegate jobs leading up to the day and on the day of the wedding so you can relax and enjoy every moment, have a run sheet and a plan B, especially if its a wet weather option and on the day, just embrace anything that happens especially the things that 'go wrong' they make great stories later!
Our Vows, its like the whole world stops and in that moment nothing else matters except from the person standing in front of you. I loved that.
