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

Wedding-Maia and Sam

Maia and Sam got married on a beautiful sunny day at Araluen Gardens in Whangarei.

The lucky couple won WOW Wedding competion organised by a bunch of awesome northland vendors.

They had a light grazing table just after the ceremony, then choose to have two food trucks to cater their wedding dinner, us and Che Lucio (Argentinian barbeque). Maia and Sam choose to serve two pasta mains: Ravioli filled with ricotta, lemon and pinenuts served with butter, garden herbs and parmesan & Gnocchi with bolognese ragù.
