We shifted to Queenstown together nearly 2 years ago and have a pretty amazing lifestyle here. We are both accountants and that is how we met but luckily we have more than that in common. We both love cycling over summer and skiing at sunset over the winter months.
Tell us about your special day, was there a specific theme or style? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details…
We only looked at the Winehouse for a venue and we loved it straight away. It was perfect for what we wanted – a relaxed venue with lots of different areas to go on the day all with amazing backdrop views in the Gibbston Valley.
What were some of the most memorable/unique moments from the day?
I remember being so nervous walking down the aisle with everyone’s eyes on me until I saw Guy standing up the front of the aisle and then suddenly everything was fine. A favourite part of the day was having almost every single one of our friends and family all together in the same place. It was so fun being surrounded by all our favourite people and having an evening of entertaining speeches all about us.
Tell us about your outfits:
My Mum was down visiting one weekend and we decided to have a look at wedding dresses. I only looked at one store and ended up going with the first dress I tried on – it was easier than I thought and I loved having Mum there to help pick.
Any advice for other couples planning to spend the rest of their lives together?
Plan a wedding that suits your style and budget and remember to try and take the whole day in as you go. You’ve planned it for so long but it goes so quickly.
