Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | WELCOME -

It was a desti­na­tion wed­ding with a dif­fer­ence when Alan­nah Tay­lor and James Lester eloped and mar­ried in Raro­tonga in the Cook Is­lands.

Their cer­e­mony was held at St Joseph’s Cathe­dral in Avarua, and the happy cou­ple cel­e­brated af­ter­wards at Nau­tilus Re­sort.

With no wed­ding guests, pho­tog­ra­pher Mitch Pohl was on hand to doc­u­ment the big day for friends and fam­ily.

The Lesters, who met through mu­tual friends, “wed­ding-mooned” in Raro­tonga, be­fore re­turn­ing home to live in Ma­roochy­dore.

“We eloped with­out any­one know­ing, and then sur­prised all our friends and fam­ily with our ex­cit­ing news three weeks later at our ‘en­gage­ment’ party which turned into an in­cred­i­bly fun wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion,” Alan­nah said.
