Alexandra & Corban
Alexandra and Corban, our amazing 2013 Wedding Party of the Year winners, met and fell in love while camping in Whananaki North. They invited friends and family there for a ‘romantic getaway’ to celebrate their wedding. Alexandra shares their story…
The day was held at a private beach, a secret paradise we wanted to share. The ocean was the backdrop to our ceremony, and afterwards a lush green field offered activities for everyone to enjoy. Options included a dress-up photo booth, a tree swing, pétanque, crazy catch and a typewriter to write us a note.
I always knew I would wear something that was different yet glamorously timeless. I designed my gown and had a seamstress turn the drawings into the most amazing gown I could ever imagine. The shoulder necklace I wore just made the entire outfit.
Our bridal party helped us with the set-up the day before and the morning of the wedding – we couldn't have done it without them! We had a wonderful afternoon with them, enjoying a Champagne picnic in a field and frolicking in the grass.
The afternoon eased into the evening with live music and ample beverages served from an old boat. A banquet was served from the marquee, and the night soon turned into morning as a dance party continued to 3am. It was a truly magical wedding where we got to celebrate our love with the people we love.
