Say hi, hello, nice to meet you, to Aimee and Ryan, guys. They have been a cute couple for well over 10 years and they tied the knot in this dream Auckland day after an equally dreamy proposal during a “surprise Winter getaway,” claims the bride, who wore a glorious two-piece paired with Forever Soles heels. “We had this ritual to stay at this cute Airbnb with our dogs to reset and switch off, I couldn’t think of a better place.” Frank & Peggy were there to record the day and boy are we glad…

THE VENUE “We knew we wanted something coastal with accommodation so we could have a full weekend of fun with close friends, family, and our dogs. We instantly fell in love with Muriwai Estate and the Mediterranean vibe, it was perfect.”

THE INSPO “A relaxed, chilled vibe that felt like a dreamy holiday. We wanted minimal formalities and more time for fun!”

FAVE DEETSRuth Fiona Floral did an incredible job with the flowers, they are so raw and organic like works of art and the venue and location itself was a visual dream.”

MEMORABLE MOMENT “After the ceremony we had a moment together on the grass to take the day in and enjoy Lee’s incredible acoustic set and see everything we worked so hard on come together!”

LITTLE LOL “When it came time to exchange rings nobody had them! But luckily we were staying on site so they weren’t far away!”

A WORD OF ADVICE “Personalise your day and make it about who you both are as a couple! It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of what a wedding should be, but it can be anything you want it to be!”

STANDOUT VENDORS “We were lucky all of our vendors were amazing and a perfect fit for our relaxed vibe! Our photographer,  Frank & Peggy, and videographer, The Perspectives, were awesome and my hair and make-up artist, Ashley Collett Styling was so kind and felt like an old friend willing to help with little tasks throughout the day.”
