They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck but Pitarena and Scott don’t need luck for their marriage to be a success. They celebrated their wedding on Friday surrounded by love.
With more than 170 guests this was one of the biggest weddings I have officiated at. It poured with rain all of Friday. Luckily we were at Gardens on Forest so used their rainy day location for the ceremony. This is a couple who are clearly perfect for each other. They had kept their personally written vows a secret from each other until the day and there were more than a few tears shed.
To celebrate Pitarena’s Maori heritage the couple had these gorgeous bouquets and buttonholes woven out of flax. They were made by Te Kakano Flowers. Stunning aren’t they – think I have a new fave wedding accessory!
