Travelling from Australia to New Zealand, Victoria and Bree wanted to get officially married in a country that legally recognized same-sex marriage, which Australia did not at the time. Victoria and Bree met at work and were together four years before their engagement.

“Away for the weekend in the Hunter Valley Bree took me out for lunch at Bistro Molini. She arranged for my ring to come out on a plate with dessert, the proposal was written around the ring in chocolate sauce surrounded by strawberries and other fruit.”

“Our wedding story started in such gorgeous location as Hotel DeBrett with so many photo opportunities and emotional moments, then a walk through the city to the registry office where we got some beautiful photographs in Auckland Domain. This wedding was just gorgeous with such a unique, romantic and real atmosphere. I loved every candid and natural moment of this celebration of love. LOVE IS LOVE!”
