Real Wedding | Rachel and Grant

Grant and I first met when we exchanged some messages over a dating site. Our mutual love for caffeine sparked the first flames as we dated, and we would seek out the best spots for a brew, and of course a chat. Only weeks later after I deleted my account - And not because of Grant may I add - Did we bump into one another at the church group I was running.

Real Wedding | Georgia and Dylan

Dylan and I met ten years ago through our younger sisters who are best friends. Dylan Facebook messaged me and we started dating around the age of 13, but I ended it a few months later because I thought we were to young. At 16 I moved in with his family to board with them so I could be closer to my work as I worked with Dylan’s mum and grandmother. Throughout the years he stayed my best friend.

Real Wedding | Sarah and Chris

Chris and I both have older brothers, who became best friends when we were nine years old. Since the time they met, they have been planning our future together! Chris and I went to high school together and actually became best friends when we were about 14, we were inseparable until Chris confessed he had a crush on me, and when I turned him down he did not take it very well. We parted ways for a while and somehow I dated another guy named Chris and he dated another girl named Sarah! We rekindled the romance at Chris’ brother Tim’s wedding where we were both sober drivers and started dating shortly after. We were about 18 at the time, and I was in my first year of study. Fast forward a few years I graduated and got a three-month internship in Auckland at Rue de Seine Bridal, so we did a short stint of long distance, and once I was offered a full-time job Chris packed his bags and moved on up.

Michael and I met in London at a festival. He had a terrible moustache which naturally I stopped to give him grief about! Soon after our first encounter, Michael created an indoor netball team to slowly win me over and after six months of hard slog for him, it slowly formed into a romance!

Real Wedding | Candice + Tom

It was ladies night at the high school old boys club rooms and my sister had taken me along to meet someone. Long story short, it didn’t go as planned! Tom was a bachelor ‘for sale’ and he was auctioned off to a rather boozed lady who ended up not seeing the night out - which meant Tom was free!

Real Wedding | Jess + Ryan

Ryan and I met in my home town of Brisbane. He was over on a work trip planting trees in North Queensland, and just so happened to know my cousin - who lived with us. Shortly after his arrival, Ryan made the move to live with my family and one night we got talking after I came home from a party. We totally hit it off, and the rest was pretty much history - but not before Ryan asked my dad if it was ok to date me! A year later I made the move with Ryan to his hometown, Christchurch.
