Elopement Wedding

Number 2 Road Hall, Te Puke

Heidi and Luke chose to marry at the very underrated Te Puke Number 2 Road Country Hall. The opted to have just their immediate families present to share in their elopement wedding. The following day they had friends and family join them to celebrate in a wedding marquee put up just for the occasion. Smaller elopement weddings like this are just so beautiful. While intimate they’re also informal and relaxed and they were put at ease by their celebrant Carol Rickard: nz.linkedin.com/in/carol-rickard-17780756

It was a beautiful heartfelt ceremony with their beautiful wee daughter sharing in the proceedings. Little touches like randomly pulling names from a hat who would sign the register. After the ceremony celebratory drinks were handed around as were jokes and hugs. We took family photos and then went outside to enjoy the sunshine on this beautiful early Autumn day. After spending some lovely relaxed time we’d timed things perfectly to go for a wee drive as Heidi and Luke love our New Zealand natural bush so we had some fun before heading off up the hills to catch some of that late light. And boy were we treated to not only the spectacular views of Mount Maunganui here in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand but one of the most brightest sunsets!

Luke and Heidi finished up by heading off to meet up with family in Tauranga with a celebratory dinner! Perfect way to end a perfect day. I so so SO enjoyed your day Heidi and Luke. – Rochelle
