Scott & Jenni’s Proposal

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

 jenni.jpg

Scott proposed to Jenni in the fresh powder on a beautiful snow covered slope in the back country of Mt Ruapehu on the 7th October 2012 in an area called Solitude. Mt Ruapehu is special to them because that’s where Scott taught Jenni to snowboard and they both have spent a lot of time together there. Scott had spraypainted ‘will you marry me’ on the slope, he boarded down to Jenni, unstrapped one foot so he could get down on one knee and propose. There was a slight mishap when the ring dropped in the snow but luckily it was quickly salvaged.

What a truly spectacular moment and a memory that will last forever.

Diamonds Forever wishes you both every success for your future and we look forward to receiving the amazing wedding photos from your happy day.

Michelle & Robert shared their love for each other infront of family and friends when they married on March the 10th 2012, at Sarnia Park in Cambridge.
Our wedding went fantastic, we loved every minute of it and would not have changed anything about it. Our rings are great and exactly what we wanted for our wedding bands. My ring matches beautifully with my engagement ring and Robert had no problems with putting my ring on either which was a bonus.

Robbie & Narelle’s Wedding Day

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Robbie and Narelle were married on November 26th, 2011 at Longlands in Matamata

“Boy met Girl and fell in love For the rest of the story please join us”

Robbie and I had such a wonderful wedding day. Sunny weather, colourful lanterns, fortune cookies, a Croque en Broche wedding cake, it was a great excuse to have a party!

We were thrilled with our wedding rings as we felt they were unique and a bit different to what everyone else had. Jayne also made my pear shaped engagement ring, which is stunning and it was really exciting to finally wear the two rings together, they certainly sparkle in the sun.

We couldn’t believe how fast the day went. The best part was looking around the room and seeing all our family and friends together, in the one place, at the same time, celebrating - when else do we get the chance to do that!

Dear Jayne,

Thank you so much for your professionalism and care over the past few years. You made the whole process of buying an engagement ring very easy - as you know this can be a very daunting thing! We are both extremely happy with our wedding rings as well - we always get great comments from people about them. Your efficiency, professionalism and nature have made the purchase of the rings the easiest part of organising our wedding.

Samantha & Dominik’s Wedding

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Samantha & Dominik were married on October 14th 2011.

First Class Classics have the most divine vehicles in Auckland, royalty and presidents have been driven around in their cars. They are kept immaculately and the drivers are true gentlemen. The cars really make the event a real occasion.

It is so important to get make up right for the special day. The bridesmaids and bride were thrilled with their makeup, Bronwyn Lewis and her team did a fantastic job.

The flowers created by Kae Flowers were so pretty and really complemented the theme of the wedding and the colours we had chosen. The girls dresses just looked fabulous against them. The colours and the style came out perfectly, colourful, fun and fresh. The flowers were used throughout the day from the girls bouquets to the church pews and as part of the reception tables in Mason Jars.

The ceremony was at the beautiful St Marks Church on Remuera Road in Auckland. The Reverened Mark Sullivan conducted a wonderful service with great words of wisdom and a fantastic sense of humour which really got the guests engaged.

What made the day truly flow flawlessly and perfectly was the help of Gayle from Exquisite Weddings. It makes so much difference when you don’t have to worry about a thing on your special day and everything happens seamlessly whilst you can focus on being in the moment with your new husband, friends and family. What makes Gayle so fantastic is that she knows who the best people are in town and ensures all the details for the day to run smoothly are in place. Gayle works tirelessly behind the scenes the week of the wedding which allows couples to spend time with friends and family, particularly those that have come from overseas.

Trousseau Bridal go out of their way to ensure you and your gals have the perfect shoes for the special day. The service in the little store is impeccable. They even managed to size bridesmaids shoes via email. The quality of the shoes is outstanding and the selection they have is great. The girls shoes were very pretty and added the finishing touch to their outfits.

The cake for the wedding was a four tiered cake with alternating layers of Lemon and Chocolate cake, it was served as the desert so it didn’t go to waste. The design was exquisite and matched wonderfully into our theme. What made the design truly personal was the piping which matched the lace of Samantha’s dress. We highly recommend you go and have a chat with Jenny from For Heaven’s Cake.

Cocoa Berry designed the stationary just as it was imagined, the theme was very specific, old country romantic travel with soft pastels and splashes of purple. Lucy and Charlotte designed the invitations, name tags, order of service, menus, name tags and seating plan and they are currently working on the thank you cards as the finishing touch. The process of getting the design right was unbelievably easy. Stationary adds a truly personal touch to the day and is something that everyone can take home as a keepsake.

The reception was at Okahu, the gorgeous venue which sits right on the water in the most picturesque spot in Auckland at Okahu Bay. The service of the staff were absolutely superb and faultless, they made sure all the guests and the bride and groom were having a great time. The food was absolutely delicious with all the guests raving about it. The pier down the side of Okahu was perfect for photo’s as well.

Other than the band, one of the most entertaining parts of the day was the Little Black Photobooth. The photo’s are absolutely hilarious and provided both guests and the bride and groom with fabulous keepsakes. The Photobooth added to the travel theme as everyone got to take home passport photo’s. It also means that nearly everyone is captured in at least one photo on the day! Silvio who managed the booth was great and he ensured that everyone who had a photo also wrote in the Photobooth album. What a great way to get the night started.

We decided to go with the special meeting before the ceremony and these are the most beautiful shots of the day where the emotion and pure happiness was truly captured. The photo album will be filled with beautiful photo’s and memories.

Other special mentions:

Betty the Dress Maker made a beautiful dress which combined a number of elements from different dresses into a masterpiece.

Thank you Smith & Caughey and House of Travel for managing all our gifts, great job!

The CVE was our entertainment at the reception and they did a stella job, everyone old and young was on the dance floor. They did every song that was requested. What an absolutely amazingly talented group. Book them today!

 Dorset Suit Hire made things so easy and they really took care of the guys (especially as the bride can’t do everything, it was a relief to know they were being looked after). They have excellent quality suits and a great range to choose from. They were really flexible about pick up and delivery of the suits and the service was great.

Kathryn (the Maid of Honors Mum) who made absolutely delicious cup cakes for our picnic, they could go into a food magazine!

Lastly, the people who taught us to boogie to the first dance song by Bruno Mars - Marry You. Trish & Mike from Tempo Dance Studio taught a fabulous little jig within just a few sessions which entertained all the guests. We really enjoyed the lessons and in the lead up to the wedding it was a great way for the bride and groom to spend some quality time together.
