Wow it’s hard to believe that it’s already the anniversary of this gorgeous couple: a year ago on Labour weekend in Mt Maunganui, this lovely couple Mel & Ant tied the knot. The weather didn’t play nicely for the planned beach ceremony, but it ended up being perfect for the photos.  And we had a back up plan in place right up until an hour before kick off.  It was such a pleasure to be a part of Mel & Ant’s big day.  Happy Anniversary guys!  Have a look at this gorgeous video by Brydie Photography and this fabulous review which makes us love our job even more than we already do.

Our wedding was in October 2015 and we were lucky enough to have Kim and her team from Take A Vow helping us plan our wedding. Being a busy mum of 2 young boys and working I didn’t have a lot of time to sort everything out especially the little things.

Kim was amazing from the start and nothing was a problem! We are based in Mount Maunganui which is where our wedding was. She came down from Auckland and looked over the proposed wedding ceremony site at the beach and came to our reception venue to talk to the owners with me which I really appreciated. She talked over what sort of wedding we were after and gave me some great mood boards to look at for ideas on the set up and suggested flowers that were going to be in season.

The week before and the day of the wedding Kim was a godsend. We had hiccups that were out of our control like the flower wholesalers roof collapsing in his glasshouse which meant three days before the wedding Kim was sourcing other flowers for me which ended up being perfect.

Then on the day Mother Nature didn’t play ball which meant we didn’t get to have our beach wedding so we had to move the ceremony inside. But you know what? I didn’t stress at all the whole time because I knew Kim had it all under control and I surely wasn’t disappointed everything was perfect and we loved our day!

I can’t thank you enough Take A Vow for making our day amazing and I can’t recommend your services enough!
