Relaxed Waimauku Barn Wedding

I met at Genevieve at a mutual friend’s birthday party and we got on really well. After leaving the party, I asked the taxi driver to turn back, I got Genevieve’s phone number, and the rest is history.

Who Genevieve + Iain Hudson
Where Waimauku, Auckland
Guests 74

I said yes.. Iain proposed to me at the end of the beach at Taupo Bay in Northland. It was a beautiful thing and there were tears of joy and lots of questions after, as I had know idea it was going to happen!

Our wedding style was… free spirited, natural and fun

We saved on.. .Flowers; almost all were sourced from family and friend’s gardens and arranged the day before and the music we used for the reception was a playlist so we saved using this instead of having a DJ/live band.

We splurged on… Maaka Pohatu from the Modern Maori Quartet who was our musician for the ceremony and Genevieve’s dress from Daughters of Simone. Iain said it was worth every cent!

Our advice to engaged couples… Do start small and get bigger rather than starting big and trying to get smaller, utlilsie your supports and networks as your friends and family will always be there to help.
