Chris and Lisa’s Beach Wedding

Chris and Lisa came to us all the way from the United Kingdom for a wedding at a beach in the Nelson region.  Their testimony perhaps best describes their experience:

“On deciding to get married in New Zealand, we initially made contact with two different Celebrants in different parts of the country – one in Coromandel, and New Zealand Wedding Packages in Nelson.  Our decision to proceed with the latter was based on two reasons: although both beautiful locations, the beaches around Nelson are simply breath-taking.  However, at this early stage, even more important than this was the response from the celebrants themselves.

From the start, Ron at New Zealand Wedding Packages was always very prompt in responding to any queries, as well as being extremely informative.  He took all of the worries and stress out of organising a wedding on the other side of the world.  He fully explained how the costs were broken down and was happy to make adjustments to the package to better suit us.

The day itself was absolutely perfect, and far exceeded even our very high expectations.  Usually quite an anxious, nervous person at big events, I was the most relaxed bride I’ve ever seen!  The hairdresser and make-up artists who were arranged by wedding planner Kimberly were the first to arrive at my hotel, they were the two friendliest women I have ever met!  By the time they had finished I couldn’t stop smiling, they had done such an amazing job!

As we made our way over to the beach, the scenery was awe-inspiring.  We couldn’t believe how lucky we were to be getting married in such an incredibly stunning location.  As Ron had previously explained how the ceremony would go and how long it would take, we knew exactly what to expect.  The ceremony was followed by a delicious dinner on the beach, organised by Kimberly, and our wonderful wedding cake.

The photographer and videographer were both very professional and helpful.  The photographs and videos were available to us much quicker than we expected, and we could not have predicted how beautiful they would all be.  Truly images that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.”

We would have no hesitation at all in recommending New Zealand Wedding Packages.  There is nothing we would change about the whole experience.  The service we received from the start was first class and we are very grateful in how special they made us feel on our perfect day.
