Our journey to marriage started when Malone proposed in Sardinia. Once home, we started looking into venue options and found our top choice in Taupo at the beautiful Poronui Lodge.

We wanted an intimate celebration; one that focused on our families, our guests and most importantly one that celebrated the beautiful transformation of our relationship. Our good friend completed her celebrant license to wed us, and our two best friends were the composition of our bridal party.

We chose Zoe & Morgan for our rings and jewellery because their intricate, yet simplistic design so perfectly fit with us. Malone wanted a simple band which they designed and made just right, and Zoe (so talented as she is!) hand carved my band with a wreath design to match a bangle that was given to me by my Great Grandmother. After picking up our rings and boasting to my Mum about their jewellery we came in and chose my bridal earrings, a pair for Mum, a pair for my Celebrant, and a pair for my Maid of Honour - and they all looked AMAZING!

We have nothing but the best memories from our day, and are so incredibly thankful to our vendors who worked so hard to pull everything together so perfectly for us.
