Jeremy and I met at the gym, where he was a class in­struc­tor. It’s fair to say my in­ter­est in the gym in­creased… a lot! Four years later we tied the knot at the Pa­cific Ren­dezvous in Tu­tukaka. The area is close to my heart as I’d spent many hol­i­days there with my grand­par­ents and it was my late grand­fa­ther Ed­die’s favourite place to be. We wanted to spend lots of time with our fam­ily and friends so we hired the re­sort for two nights for a week­end cel­e­bra­tion. On the Fri­day we had the food truck ‘I’m A Lit­tle Teapot’ serv­ing ta­cos and Mex­i­can beer, and on the Satur­day we had the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion.

I fell in love instantly with Anna Schim­mel’s clas­sic and el­e­gant dress de­sign – it was ex­actly what I was af­ter. A veil, white and gold

Kathryn Wil­son heels, and my nana’s di­a­mond ear­rings fin­ished the look. Jeremy wore a black cus­tom made suit by Bark­ers, with a white shirt with black but­ton de­tails and black bow tie – he looked so dash­ing!

The flow­ers were one of my favourite parts about the day. We opted for tulips, made out of silk by the tal­ented Amy at Keep­sake Bou­quets. I wanted to in­cor­po­rate them into the day as a nod to Jeremy’s fam­ily, who are Dutch.

To en­cour­age min­gling, we didn’t have a seat­ing plan, en­joy­ing a scrump­tious buf­fet din­ner by the won­der­ful team at Peo­ple Po­ten­tial. Our close friend Annie Shaw cre­ated our del­ish white and gold cake, three-tiered in choco­late, red velvet and but­ter cake flavours.

Mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment was so im­por­tant to us on the day. Our friend Luke Bird was our MC and every­one was so charmed by his hu­mour, wit and all-around amaz­ing­ness through­out the evening. It was a week­end I’ll never for­get!
