All you need is love and … a sneak peek at Amber and Jeff’s real life wedding.
On April 18 2015 I had the pleasure of joining Amber and Jeff and their friends and family at the beautiful Larnach Castle as Amber and Jeff committed to each other and became husband and wife.
Amber and Jeff
Venue: Larnach Castle, Dunedin
Wedding Dress: Brides by Mancini – Belle
Bridesmaid Dresses: JJs House – Online
Photographer: Lisa Reid
Hair: Aurum Hairstylists
Make up: Kristine at Body Shop
Grooms Attire : Online
Celebrant: Angela Port (woot, woot!)
Flowers: Hand-made by the bride
Catering: Larnach Castle
Cake: Family friend made the cake – a restounding success
Anything else you want to include: we had our photo’s taken before the ceremony, which meant we could spend more time with the guests. (Larnach Castle only allows weddings to take place after the castle is closed to the public after 5pm, so having the photos taken before the 5pm ceremony actually works out well)
When was the best part of the day: after the ceremony and the photos, when I could kick back and relax.
Is there anything you would have done differently? Worried less beforehand – it all works out in the end.
How did you pick your wedding party? Easy – family.
Best piece of advice you were given: Enjoy it, it really goes so quickly, so it’s important you enjoy your time.
Any tips you want to pass on to future brides? Relax as much as possible – it should be fun.
Anything that didn’t go according to plan? Nothing major, some theatrics from our daughter during the ceremony, but that was to be expected (and was cute, so ok). I do remember wee Violet wandering off during the ceremony behind me – Angela
Thank you Amber and Jeff for sharing your beautiful wedding day. I hope you and your family and friends enjoy rel-living your special day.
