A relaxed seaside soirée to complete the most gorgeous family.
After the sunset ceremony on the clifftops at The Summer House (an incredible location scouted by their photographer Sarah Clements Photography) the couple joined the rest of their friends to party the night away at The Boathouse.
How did you meet and how long have you been together?
We met on a night out in Nelson over 10 years ago now and the rest is history!
How would you describe each other?
Chalk and cheese
Tell us a little bit about the proposal and your engagement?
Jeb’s not one for romantic gestures but he actually organised us to stay at a Pure Pod and proposed there, it was beautiful.
Tell us about your wedding style. What influenced your planning for the day?
I’d say we have an unconventional wedding style. We had a super chilled elopement style ceremony at The Summer House with our parents and siblings, followed by a low key party with our friends at The Boathouse in Nelson. Minimal planning and effort was needed. I actually didn’t plan any details of the ceremony, we just let the day unfold. The only thing I had planned in advance was what we were going to wear. I found a couple of pictures on Pinterest for
Why did you choose your destination?
We actually didn’t pick it! I loved our photographers work and knew we had similar style so I justsaid pick a place/time and we’ll be there! …And that’s exactly what we did, we had no idea where we were getting married until we arrived at the venue. She definitely came through with the goods!
What was your favourite moment from the day?
The whole day was all sorts of magic, filled with so many incredible moments I could never pick!
What does marriage mean to you?
Marriage was just the last piece of our puzzle. For me, I just wanted to have the same last name as our girls.
Who were your stand out vendors?
Our photographer – Sarah Clements. I think it’s important you get someone you vibe with and like their style! I feel really awkward in front of a camera and she just makes it easy to relax, have fun and forget that she’s snapping away in the background. It’s great, she can actually capture a moment that takes you back. She definitely went the extra mile for us!
Also our celebrant Becky, she spoke from her heart at our ceremony and made it all sorts of a vibe! She also never complained with my minimal details advance and laid back approach, which I’m sure would be horrific for some!
Advice for other couples planning a wedding?
If you hang your flowers upside down after your big day, in 3 weeks you’ll have a cute bunch of dried flowers to keep as a memento!
