I’m not gonna rattle on too much about Vanessa and Craig’s beautiful Arrowtown wedding.

But I really loved this wedding.

I loved the weather & I loved that the weather didn’t phase Vanessa and Craig.

I loved the hero touches, like seriously those bouquets and buttonholes – never seen anything like those.

I loved the cars, #theblokesintrees,  the ceremony, the bridge that Craig built, the amazing hair, the dresses, the –  I really could go on and on.

So here is a wedding story that I hope you love too.
