Haley and Nick – 7 April 2018

Today in front of our family and friends I promise to go fishing as long as you take care of anything slimy and stinky, and to pretend to show interest in horsepower, engines and custom modifications even if I have no idea what you are talking about sometimes…

I vow to never leave my hunting boots inside after you have spent all weekending cleaning  and I vow to spend every day growing this marriage in to something special 

I spend much of wedding season wondering if it’s going to rain, or if it’s going to be fine. I try to do rehearsals for both situations … But it’s always the way that if we don’t get to practice one then BOOM that’s the one that will happen on the day!

It was a last minute call whether to have Haley and Nick’s ceremony at the beautiful location that is the Lodge at Pauatahanui Inlet … We braved the weather and while the brisk southerly wind made an appearance, our hearts were warm. We laughed and we celebrated a great couple and their future journey – just another step in their 7 year relationship to date! Check out Mel Waite Photography‘s beautiful snaps below of the ceremony and some snaps around the venue and the beautiful Inlet.

I have it under good authority that the food was amazing, the cake was beautiful, everyone had a great time and danced the night away!! Wishing the Moorcocks all the best for their future and thanks for having me (and my sparkly gumboots!) along for the ride xx

Vendor recommendations:

Suits – Hallensteins


With 2 months out from our wedding Miranda came to our rescue and saved the day. After meeting we were so glad Miranda was going to marry us, she put us at ease, explained everything from start to finish and our ceremony was beautiful. She listened to what we wanted of nothing too formal and quite relaxed. Miranda created just that. The ceremony was filled with laughter, tears and love. She kept the boys in line, swapped her high heels for pink sparkly gumboots (after the ceremony) and helped the photographer round everyone for group photos. Miranda did a fantastic job and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Thank you so much again Miranda and all the best for your future weddings
Nick & Haley
