Nigel wears a gold brushed ring with an engraving of our wedding date. Our daughter received a custom made necklace in the form of a throat chakra, set with her Aquamarine birthstone.
Our son received a custom HEI MATAU pounamu to honour the Kiwi tradition and Maori beliefs. This Greenstone fish hook represents strength, determination and brings peace, prosperity and good health. Zoë used our daughters drawing and added her own ideas to come up with these stunning, sacred and meaningful wedding rings.
To complete the girls outfits our daughter received for her birthday a beautiful set of Golden Hour earrings, I wore a set of silver Sunburst earrings with Lemon Quartz.
Our wedding day on the 7th March 2020 at Mudbrick on Waiheke was magical. The outdoor ceremony with view over the Hauraki Gulf created a stunning atmosphere. Our daughter was my bridesmaid and walked down the aisle with me and my dad. Our son was Nigel’s best man.
We wrote our own vows, and our children acted as witnesses. Our reception was held at Mudbrick restaurant and our children joined us for speeches and cutting the cake. We danced all night to live music by Hipstatmatics.
We treasure every memory of this unforgettable day and journey leading up to it.
The timing couldn’t have been more divine to celebrate carefree with family and friends from New Zealand and overseas including my family from Germany just before all the borders were closed because of COVID-19.
