From Christchurch out to the Waipara Valley, chasing thick puffy clouds and deep blue skies to a special location where very very few weddings have existed. And the final celebration before the owners of Pyramid Valley Wines move on to new beginnings. Doug said to me before we left that morning, “I think we’re in for a treat today!” And that we were. One full of rainbow colour, fun eclectic taste, WINE, sooooo much wine! Gorgeous valleys encompassing a wedding so full of human connection, joy, relaxation and love.
Nicole and Hugh’s wedding day was everything they wanted it to be and more, and I just have have have to add the kindness of these two, that when Doug nabbed himself a speeding fine (in the mini BTW(*ahem* toootally wasn’t going the speed he was nabbed for) on the way up to the wedding, when mentioned in passing to Nicole, she’d already made up her mind that she was paying for it! … Which brings me to my next favourite part of the day when a guest spoke of their generosity…. “Wine people are generous people, because a bottle of wine is not just for one, it’s to be shared”.
Congratulations to two amazing people, so genuinely made for each other. Wishing you the world of happiness, always! :)
