Kat and Dave's Boho Vintage Wedding in Tauranga
Hey there my wedding lovers! Today' I'm re sharing the first real wedding on the blog for 2017!
Kat and Dave are e-commerce business owners, they met on a ferry returning from a gig at Waiheke Island in Auckland. Dave had recently returned from overseas and was a mutual friend of Kat's brother in law. They hit it off straight away and 8 months later, decided to pack up everything, leave Auckland and move to Cape Town, South Africa for an adventure. Kat and Dave have three children: Taylor, Emilia and little Victoria has joined the gang.
Now back in New Zealand, Kat and Dave own a business, Modowest Limited, which designs and imports products for various e-commerce sites, including Eventfull - a fabulous party supply website. Getting married was the perfect opportunity to give all their lovely products a test run!
After coming back to New Zealand, Tauranga is now their family home. The couple chose to celebrate their wedding in Tauranga and host all their Auckland family and friends in this beautiful part of the country. I know you're all going to love the gorgeous little church where they had their wedding ceremony!
Here's their engagement story from Kat: Dave proposed in September 2014. We were away on holiday staying at the Hilton in Taupo. We had been out for a lovely dinner and Dave snuck away and asked for the ring to be brought out with the dessert. The funniest thing was the lovely waitress, when she brought the desert out with the ring she had tears in her eyes and then just stood there smiling at us for a while! Dave got a bit embarrassed since she was still watching us and just smiled sheepishly! The restaurant brought us some bubbly to celebrate, it was lovely.
Thanks to the lovely Ruth Gilmour for these pictures.
