Yaeh & Henry

Bride & Groom - - CONTENTS -

Yaeh and Henry cel­e­brated a mag­i­cal wed­ding day in Wanaka with fam­ily and friends who had trav­elled from all around the world. Yaeh shares their story…

Our wed­ding day be­gan dif­fer­ently for the both us. Henry dragged his groomsmen to the gym at the crack of dawn and I was up un­til 2am bak­ing and icing the wed­ding cake! Luck­ily for me, the morn­ing was far more re­laxed. The girls and I were pam­pered while the boys set up the cer­e­mony site, which over­looked Lake Wanaka and its sur­round­ing moun­tains.

Henry ser­e­naded me down the aisle with an acous­tic gui­tar ver­sion of Bey­once’s Love on Top. Af­ter the cer­e­mony, our guests en­joyed home­made canapés, drinks and out­door games in an out­door lounge set up with chaise lounge, se­quinned gold cush­ions, Pimms with pa­per straws and acous­tic tunes. Henry and I were flown by he­li­copter to


a moun­tain­top lo­ca­tion for our pho­tos.

Our re­cep­tion venue was dec­o­rated with gold glit­tered jars filled with can­dles and flow­ers in white and plum hues with lots of fo­liage. A chan­de­lier made up of 1000 pa­per cranes was in­spired by my Ja­panese her­itage, and the ta­ble tops were scat­ted with mini cranes, salted caramel choco­lates for favours and pic­tures of me and Henry through­out the years. We’d spent a lot of time mak­ing lit­tle things to add am­bi­ence to our theme, in­clud­ing grow­ing the pot­ted plants that dec­o­rated our venues, mak­ing gold se­quinned cush­ions, ta­ble run­ners, he­lium bal­loons with fring­ing, chalk­board signs, a gold se­quin ta­ble cloth for the dessert ta­ble, the cake top­per and cup­cakes.

A yummy meal and speeches were fol­lowed by the cut­ting of the cake and danc­ing into the night. It was truly a mag­i­cal day.
