Promises Under A Powhutukawa Tree

Kerryn & Hayden have strolled this stretch of beach since their crush swept teens, this is one of those amazing stories where young love & friendship has grown into something incredible! And what a cool chapter in their continuing love story that they chose to marry where so many memories have been stored. The family Bach’s garage was converted into the honeymoon suite by Kerryn’s mum, tents were raised in neighbouring backyards to house family & friends, and the gorgeous old Bach coughed out powder & hairspray as the girls got ready. Kerryn’s two lovely Aunts officiated the ceremony and I even think the local RSA Club was invaded the night before for a bit of a pre wedding shin-dig.

They hitched up a chandelier under an obliging Pohutukawa tree to say their I Do’s,  as family & friends wandered down to the beach and through the hydrangea arch into an afternoon of love.
