Sarah & Ran­dall

This gor­geous water­front celebration was filled with sur­prises for the guests… and the bride!

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - NEWS -

Sarah spent the morn­ing sip­ping Cham­pagne with her brides­maids and shared a spe­cial mo­ment with her dad when he saw her in her dress for the first time. Then it was off to the mag­i­cal, water­front cer­e­mony. The re­cep­tion was full of sur­prises, with Ran­dall and the grooms­men do­ing a chore­ographed dance to Up­town Funk, plus the groom had or­gan­ised three Maori men in tra­di­tional cos­tume to sur­prise his Kiwi bride with a haka per­for­mance. Later in the night, a dress-up box filled with props was brought onto the dance floor – fun! Af­ter hours of danc­ing, the cou­ple left through a tun­nel of sparklers. The per­fect end to the per­fect day!
