Our 2014 Wedding of the Year winners

Choosing the winners of our Wedding of the Year competition is always one of our favourite tasks – but it’s never an easy one!


Once again, we were overwhelmed by the hundreds of beautiful, heart-warming and creative entries we received for our Wedding of the Year competition, making our task of choosing the winners very difficult! However, after much deliberation we are delighted to announce the wedding of Olivia and Chris Phillips as our Wedding of the Year winner. The couple’s romance began at college, survived a year of long distance, and then there was a surprise proposal in Golden Bay with Olivia’s great grandmother’s ring. A short six months later they were married in a beautiful church ceremony in their hometown of Nelson.

Check out a sneak peek below and be sure to pick up the latest issue of Bride & Groom magazine to see all of their amazing day!
