Heathcote Valley Wedding Christchurch

Genaea & Dean {Married} Part 1

They were set up on a blind date. That was meant to be on the Sunday. They bought it forward to the Friday and 6 weeks later Genaea moved in with Dean to the Heathcote Valley Inn Tavern which Dean owns. Geanaea said it was better to find out sooner rather than later whether it was going to work. And work it has indeed. Because 1 year on exactly to the date… They wed with massive smiles on their faces on the very steps of the pub they now both own.

Meet Dean’s son and best man, Jack. Jack played a huge part in their day! He was the only man for the ‘best man’ role!

Upstairs from the Tavern in their apartment, Genaea is looking gorgeous.

A couple of friends were trying to get a peek of the bride… and although she looked gorgeous in that white towel… the white dress will look even better! ;-)

See? … We left the Tavern and went into the Valley to a tree lined lane to meet up with the men for some photos before the ceremony.

Genaea and her girls looked amazing!

I’m guessing the girls told Genaea she’s getting married in a couple of hours? hehe.

Some locals were kind enough to let us use their property. Mmmmm so pretty! (Not to mention damn hot in there!)

I love this. Not only does Genaea look drop dead gorgeous, but Dean looks like the luckiest guy in the world! I am happy their blind date worked out!!!

Did I mention Dean is a bit of a clown? He definitely makes Genaea laugh and if you can find someone that makes you laugh. I reckon you’ve hit the jackpot!
