Claire & Peter

Bride & Groom MAGAZINE 75 Real Weddings-3

Claire and Peter planned their Auckland wedding, complete with special personal touches, from 18,000km away in the Netherlands. Claire shares the details…

Our wedding day was characterised by a fun, relaxed feeling with a fusion of modern and traditional elements, and a focus on embracing our zest for life. Our choice of flowers in bright, vivid colours added to the vibrancy of the day, and involving family and friends in special roles meant it was a real team effort. We exchanged vows surrounded by Kauri trees and the people special to us, who had travelled from the far-flung corners of the world. Personal details were important to us, such as the handmade bunting and the individually folded origami cranes for each guest. These were accompanied by a card explaining that in lieu of traditional favours we had made an on-going donation to UNICEF to help children in need.
Ultimately, we had a day that focused on the meaning of true love and making a commitment for a lifetime.
