Welcome ya’ll to spring weather in New Zealand, the reason for both excitement and some trepidation at Stacey and Tate’s gorgeous wedding at the Black Barn Tarawera!
The day started out a beaut, but by mid-morning, the weather had rolled in and there was the talk of shifting the ceremony indoors. Now, turns out all you have to do is think positive thoughts and the rain will move on, right in time for you to affirm your love with your best friend and then party it up on the lawn for the rest of the evening… well at least that’s what we learned from this amazing day <3
The weather was so gorgeous, in fact, with the brilliant afternoon sunshine casting a rainbow behind these two as they said their vows, it was just surreal.
Stacey and Tate are both incredible people with a laid back kinda vibe. When we discovered the wedding dress was too big to fit in the back of the bridal car (no small feat as it was massive) we all jumped into Stacey’s Dad’s aging work van to get down to the lakeside. It was an awesome adventure in its own right with its bright purple paint job, spongy gearbox and total lack of seats making the journey nothing if not exciting! They opted, too, for wood-fired pizza, donuts, and Mr Whippy in place of a more traditional reception dinner and we can’t say enough how good the food was and how much we recommend doing this if you happen to be planning your big day!
So go on and check out Stacey and Tate’s gorgeous wedding at the Black Barn Tarawera and be sure to let us know your thoughts below when you’re done. Till next time <3
