I asked Sarah to tell us a little bit about her and Andrew’s wedding in the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Where was it?  At the Waimate North Church followed by the Reception at The Copthorne Hotel, Bay Of Islands.

Theme or style:  Our colour theme was white, gold and orange, traditional and romantic

Brides Dress: Kate Dowman, also the pearls and flower in my hair.  The flowers:  White Lillies and Orange Roses – by my mother

Hair:  Haana Baker, KeriKeri  Makeup: Rebecca Young – Essentially Young Beauty Therapy, Auckland

Groom/Groomsmen:  Frank Casey Suit Hire   The Cake: Chocolate Mudcake and Fruitcake for top layer – by a family friend  Invitations & Stationery: Graffic Affair  Food & Drink: Copthorne Hotel, Soho Wines  The Honeymoon:  Los Cabos , Mexico 


“The whole day was amazing but if I had to pick one moment it would be heading out on the boat and relaxing with our wedding party as a newly married couple. The Bay of Islands scenery was stunning.”


” There are too many photos to choose just one favourite.  But we love the black and white shots at the waterfall, the groups shots on the boat and the photos with our dog Baxter are very special!”
