Marry Me

"After 14 years of being together, my husband asked me to marry him during a feed of fish and chips on the lake front in Taupo at sunset."

The Big Day

“Nine days prior to our original wedding date, the venue cancelled on us as we had a lot of unvaccinated people attending. We managed to secure the Hilton Lake Taupo and brought our wedding forward by 2 days to beat the traffic light system so all our guests could come. It was absolutely perfect. We have been together for 17 years and have 3 children, so nothing was stopping me from getting married, not even COVID restrictions."



"My colour theme was green, white, and gold. I wanted a very natural style for my wedding with a lot of greenery in a garden setting. Very elegant and simple."

From One Bride to Another 

“Don't sweat the little stuff. Your day goes by so fast and it's all a blur, so love and embrace the moment with your man.”

The Bridesmaids Dresses

“They loved them. I wanted a lot of greenery in my wedding, so the Holland khaki-coloured dresses were perfect.”
