Nicky and Nick had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Clearwater in Christchurch, and from my very first dealings with them were super relaxed and trusting of me. Christchurch was hot and sunny, and a large part of the wedding day was spent just hanging out, enjoying the fine weather. Nick played some mini golf with the boys. Nicky and the girls enjoyed their luxury hotel room complete with balcony overlooking the lake. The sun discreetly hid behind a cloud for the ceremony and then popped out again. After dinner, the kids ran about on the big lawns, infront of a pretty pink sunset.
Considering at one point there was a possibility the hotel couldn't be used for the reception due to earthquake damage, I think the day turned out pretty well. Which was fabulous, considering Nicky and Nick are such lovely, genuine people.
Oh and we felt an earthquake! Well, Liana did, I was too busy studying the selection of wines in the wine shop to notice.
Right, I'm off to bed. I need to get some sleep before my parents fly into Dunedin in the morning!!
