Imagine meeting your future husband for the first time, and being absolutely repulsed by him?! Hmmm… not the most desirable picture. But let’s be fair, Nina had no idea that Andrew was going to become the love of her life when she first lay eyes on the party boy student who rolled into class one morning after a long night out, smelling deliciously like Just Juice and wearing the same clothes as the night before. … And by “Just Juice”, I definitely don’t mean Just Juice.
A year or so went on and in a more intimate scene, Med students got together over some wine and cheese. And whatta ya know, that boy who rolled into class smelling less than desirable was full of conversation and Nina discovered how much they had in common. She played hard to get for a little while after that, but it wasn’t long before Andrew completely stole her heart, as she had already stolen his.
7 years have gone by, they’ve finished their Uni Degrees, qualified as Doctors and travelled much of the world together.
It was so incredible watching how loving, supportive, gorgeous and outrageously fun they are together. And accompanied by their friends and family, they had the most amazing wedding day at Cossars Wineshed. …Take a look for yourself….
Nina got ready at the beautiful Tai Tapu Lodge, not too far from Cossars. The skies were a vibrant blue, the sun was smiling down on this beautiful bride as she had her make up applied by Mariessa Waddington.
While there was a quiet moment, I loved learning the love story of Nigel and Shirley, Nina’s parents. Married at just 17 and 18. Shirley had her eye on Nigel before he even knew she existed. It wasn’t long before they fell in love and wedd. And I was told, they only have ONE photo from their wedding day. Just one. And with 4 kids and 30 years of marriage under their belt, it looks to me like they smile at each other as if they are still those 17 and 18 year olds. It was such a pleasure getting to know this wonderful family over the course of the day.
The beauty of this day is only just getting started… Follow me through to Part 2 of Nina and Andrew’s Wedding Day.
