Amber & Pete {Married} Part 1

6 years ago Amber had just moved into a new flat. A flat that she shared with a couple of guys. Her Dad Mal, obviously did his Dad duties and asked about the young men and their intentions. ‘Oh there’s nothing to worry about with Pete, he is never home anyway’ said Amber. And Mal flicks Pete a little look during speeches as he re-tells the beginning of Pete and Amber’s relationship.

Nothing to worry about indeed. 6 years on, 1 house and 1 dog later, they are still crazy about one another and here in Kaikoura, on a cliff top over looking the ocean… They become ‘Paamba!’. (Brandgelina can have a merged name, and so can they!)

We arrived into Kaikoura and met Pete up at the venue site to see where all the magic will happen. Amber’s attention to details is phenomenal. She is a details freak (her words not mine) and boy did the Marquee and ceremony site look AMAZING!!!

Pete goes over his speech at the ceremony site and has a bit of time for himself before the wonderful chaos begins!!!

Amber loves ‘fluff’. Sounds weird right. But she specifically wanted those little ‘hare tails’ in her bouquets. So she went and picked them and Miss Feaver Florist put them together into this awesome arrangement! So I can safely say, I love fluff too!! hehe :)

Amber’s dress is amazinggggg, I fell in love pretty hard with this one! She is a huge lover of lace. And she even had lace incorporated into her dress that was passed down from Pete’s Granny.

As Amber walks towards Pete. He said a little later on that he really truly did feel like the ‘luckiest guy in the world’. I love when grooms get all mushy on their new wives! :)
