Elegant Wellington Wedding

Helena + Alex

This gorgeous couple chose an elegant and traditional wedding theme, with an emphasis on music and dancing.  They had a formal Catholic marriage ceremony in the stunning Sacred Heart Cathedral in Thorndon, followed by a night at the museum for their reception.

Why did you choose your dress? Elegance and comfort were my priorities, and I chose the Winifred because it ticked those boxes and made me smile.  I also loved the champagne colour underneath the lace as it matched my rose gold engagement ring and wedding band.

This fun loving couple completely rocked the dance floor including a first dance that has everyone amazed and excited. Helena said "We danced to a medley of our favourite pop songs. Maria Munkowits, Alex’s sister, choreographed our first dance to a 4 minute mashup of The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson, Crazy in Love by Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Forever by Chris Brown, Down by Jay Sean and We Found Love by Rihanna. This set the tone for an epic dancefloor that was packed well beyond midnight."
