Their dream Wedding

26 Jun 2011, by Monika Vratil

Imagine getting married in a setting of pure nature and endless sea views. That is exactly what Clara and Andy have done. It was their dream to have a small private wedding on a secluded Beach in New Zealand, with only their closest friends and family by their side.

The weather was perfect and the beach setting was gorgeous, with a beautiful ceremony which was intimate, yet very romantic."

The couple exchanged vows with the sound of waves breaking as they gazed into each other's eyes. Clara wore a handmade long-sleeved elegant white wedding gown and Andy was dressed in a black tuxedo jacket and black trousers. After the ceremony, which lasted around 30 minutes, guests gathered for drinks and knibbles, while enjoying the stunning outlook of the beach.

Later everyone return back to the Westhaven Lodge for a private ceremonial
5 course dinner.

Westhaven Retreat has an outstanding location tailored to deliver your dream wedding. Exclusive use of the Luxury Lodge ensures a magnificent atmosphere and total privacy for this very special day. Choose anywhere on 300 ha of our peninsula for that special place to say I DO! Of course on a rainy day, the Lodge's glass covered veranda with a backdrop of the beautiful Whanganui Inlet, is the perfect place.
