Casual Cooks Beach Wedding

Saying our Vows | Bridal Outlet Bride Sarah

                                                                                                Sarah & JP...

were originally due to marry at Lonely Bay in the Coromandel.  However, rain stepped in to change the day and the location was moved to Cooks Beach instead.  Sarah & JP took everything in their stride and Sarah told us that Cooks Beach was just as beautiful!


The Gown

Sarah wore the Bonny Essence 8705 gown.

"I loved the fact that it was great for the beach and was simple but very elegant, with beading and lace details all the way through which made it sparkle in certain lights. The A-line gown suited my body and I also loved the train at the back which looked amazing in the photos."

All about our Wedding

"We wanted a casual beach feeling.  It was a private ceremony with a few witnesses and our celebrant. We didn’t want any stress on the day, we wanted it to be just about us so it was nice and intimate which was perfect. We wanted to have a little holiday together at the same time so the Coromandel was ideal for our destination/private wedding."

Favourite part of the Day...

would have to be becoming husband and wife and saying our own vows to each other! Also getting some photos at a beautiful waterfall near Cooks Beach, which we will treasure forever. And even though it rained, it put a bit of a spin on the day so that made for some good shots as we got to use umbrellas for some of our photo props! It also added excitement as we got some photos taken at a few different locations that we weren’t expecting on the day, because of the rain!

Jumping for Joy - I just love this pic of JP and Sarah expressing their joy at being married!
