Mell and Ash – Featherston – 14 December 2013

Every now and again you come across a couple that radiate the embodiment of “true love” and you look at them and simply smile as they are an amazing family unit who have found completeness in each other. This was one of these weddings.

Mell and Ash have a beautiful family and a beautiful outlook on life. From the first moment I met Ash through mutual professional commitments, and later Mell when we were discussing wedding plans, I felt like I had found friends who liked all my favourite things in life: laughter, wine, good food, and fantastic company. This wedding was simply a great event to be apart of; even the heat of the glorious Waiarapa sun came to the party.

Details provided by Mell and Ash:

Where: Tarureka Estate, Featherston, Wairarapa

Photographer: Matt Franklin, brilliant worker of magic!

Dress:  Sottero & Midgley as fabulously altered by Alison Blain (and here)

Make-up:  Sharyn Butters , a total professional.

Hair:  The brilliant Danielle of Darlington Family Hair Salon, Kilbirnie

Testimonial: Yay for Miranda!  Miranda not only helped to make our wedding ceremony relaxing and special for us and our guests, her general nous about all things nuptial also smoothed the planning process in the months before our Big Day and dealt to some of the (inescapable) ‘do we have everything covered?’ anxiety.  

Miranda’s ceremony was fantastic. She set the scene brilliantly with her easy style and friendly manner. She helped us come up with a service that really worked for us and made our vows special.  She also made suggestions around things to be included in the day in general and was very practical – a great resource!

To top it off Miranda is a fantastic woman who exudes confidence, is motivating,generous with her time, and clearly loves what she does.  We are stoked that you were part of our day and are very thankful for your skills, experience and fabulousness!  Great shoes too!”
