MULLET MAN! Mullet Man seriously rocks the mullet and busks his way around New Zealand. Mel spotted him once and wanted him there for her wedding day!

The time came once again to head into the reception and their first duty for the night was less of a duty and more of a fabulous surprise. As Mel and Mat were heading off to Samoa a couple of days after their wedding, a traditional Samoan dance was in order and they were draped with an M & M (clever huh) Lei and bogged for a song! They were loooving it!

The reception was nice and intimate. 7 year old Sophie gave her speech on behalf of the bridesmaids and absolutely NAILED it moving her Aunty to tears! .. And tears of laughter.

Mel and Mat, YOU DID IT! You’re happily married, both sharing the Ellen name! …And what an incredible day it was! Your visions came to life and there was nothing but love and laughter all around you, which was so so perfect.
You are seriously so so perfect for one another. Doug and I wish you all the very best for your lives together. Congratulations to you both once again! I’m sure Samoa treated you guys beautifully and you had a chance to work on your tans before the NZ winter hits!

Enjoy your wedding day sneak peek,
Heather and Doug xoxo
