English Fete theme in Taupo

Kerry married Mark in 2014, with an English Fete theme, just outside of Taupo.

My splurge item was probably my dress from Astra Bridal in Auckland, I had a very clear idea of what I wanted but I think every bride has a similar story what you want doesn’t necessarily suit you. I never thought I would end up in a strapless gown but from the moment I tried it on I knew I had to have it

Inspiration for the Theme

I was born in the UK emigrating to NZ when I was 10. It was really important to me to incorporate some of my heritage into the day. We endeavoured to recreate an English fete theme and I think we pulled this off, it certainly was a relaxed atmosphere and the look was exactly how I envisaged.

Saying “Yes” to Mark was the easiest decision I have ever made in life, not only is he an amazing and caring partner to me he is without a doubt the most loving and dedicated father to our 20 month old daughter Olive.
