#weddingwednesday Delicious Garden Wedding
Sammy Afa married her sweetheart professional rugby union player Motu Matu'u in January this year in the popular Wellington wedding setting of Tatum Park.
We asked Sammy what her favourite part of the gown was: How soft and light it felt - it was such a hot day and it did not feel like I was wearing something heavy. It was perfect.
Sammy's most memorable moment was in the forest with the bridal party taking photos. Motu and I had just become husband and wife; we opened some champagne bottles and spent a short time celebrating with our friends. We got so carried away soaking in the moment I almost forgot we had a reception to get to!
We both aimed for somthing quite relaxed and enjoyable for everyone, very informal but classy. We wanted the day to be fun and one to remember for years to come. We wanted the outdoor wedding to feel like a backyard gathering of friends and family - and lots of dancing under the stars.
