Last wedding before lockdown

by | Weddings

Nature provided the perfect vista for a gorgeous wedding … the last wedding I did before the world changed beyond recognition … and before our country went into lockdown in March …

The wedding of Brooke and Jono, under a huge tree, high on a hill overlooking the ocean at the divine Goldie Estate on Waiheke Island was just stunning.

Nature provided the perfect vista for a gorgeous wedding … the last wedding I did before our world changed beyond recognition.

The last wedding before the country went into lockdown in March.

These two met at intermediate … fancied each other at school camp and even decided to get married … on an island! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted … except they broke up the next day so their dream wedding had to wait!

Fate brought them back together when they both ended up at a random soccer game … the only one either of them have ever been to … and have been together ever since.

They wrote some fantastic vows to each other … a great example of how including some quirky, funnier vows add a wonderful lightness and humour to the ceremony … here’s a little taster:

𝑱𝑢𝑡𝑢
I promise to never start a new show without you,
Except the ones I know you wont like.
I promise to let you take me to a musical,
But only once a year.
I promise to always bring you back a milky bar after I’ve been away for work
Because it’s your favourite.
You will always count. You will always come first.
This is my promise to you.

𝑩𝑹𝑢𝑢𝑲𝑬
I promise not to get mad at you for going to F45 twice a day, if I can have you to myself on Sundays.
I promise to let you win the occasional argument, even though I’m right.
I promise that I will watch every Black Caps and All Blacks games with you,
not because you forced me to love these things but because we do it together.
I promise that you will always count. You will always come first.
This is my promise to you.

Cute huh?

Jono proposed to Brooke under the tree that they got married under while they were having a picnic during a gorgeous weekend away.

I love that they chose this stunning spot to make their wedding promises to each other. Creating beautiful traditions and memories together.

Wishing you both a magical future together, Jono & Brooke!
