Selena and Luke Wedding

Mangawhai Heads, 21 January 2023, 82 guests

Selena and Luke Wedding in Mangawhai Heads was so relaxed, boho and fun! The garden of Selena’s parents was the perfect space for a Tipi. The initial plan was for us to set up in the garden too, but unfortunately the space was just a little too tight to accomodate the all 82 guests, the Tipi, the furniture and us so the best option was for us to park in the driveway behind the house. We served canapés at cocktail hour and pasta mains, everything was served cocktail style and walked around by waiters on trays.

Sophie and Sebastian Wedding

Waitoki, 28th January 2023

No matter how well you plan, life is always full of surprises and you should always be expecting the unexpected. The night before Sophie and Seb’s wedding a heavy rainfall cause widespread catastrophic floods in the North Island. Our plan was pretty straight forward, we had a pop up in Point Chevalier the night before the wedding, we would drive back home to Wellsford as we had always done a million times in the past and set up for the wedding the day after. Except that we never made it home that night, as due to the flash flooding all the roads home were unaccessible due to slips. We stayed in Auckland at a friend’s house and we waited to hear Sophie and Seb’s plans. Around 6am, with the weather looking a lot better, Seb told us that they wanted to go ahead and get married. Well, not going to lie here, we did go a little in panic mode! Luckily we had packed lots of food the day before, it just wasn’t enough and we had to rethink some of the dishes, so we visited some of our suppliers, gathered the ingredients we needed and prepped all morning before making our way to Waitoki! So glad Sophie and Sebastian got to have the wedding of their dreams after all, the weather cleared out for them and all their guests were there to celebrate them

Elle and Sam Wedding

Elle and Sam⁠ wedding took place on a beautiful private property in Ti Point overlooking the water which had the perfect Italian feel. On the tables bespoke tablecloths made with a green damask print, bottles of limoncello as name cards, olive branches and baskets of gluten free sourdough and breads. We started with rolling canapès, followed by a seated family style meal on our beautiful white plates.

“We dreamed of getting married in Italy but Covid-19 had other plans. We didn’t want to wait until we could travel again so decided to recreate our vision here in New Zealand. Our friends offered us their beautiful home and its Italian feel matched our theme perfectly. My mum is very creative and helped us to create the perfect al fresco dining experience. Frankie and team at Black Pineapple created bespoke Italian cocktails and a local Italian couple served homemade pasta, which was incredible”.
