Whitney and Craig were engaged on their nine year anniversary and married on their tenth. The wedding was held at one of New Zealand’s oldest hotels, The Cardrona, situated between Queenstown and Wanaka.
“Our theme was ‘Rock n Sparkles’,” began the bride. “Those two things pretty much sums us up. We have a deep love of rock music and I have a deep deep love of all things glitter. We also absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE skulls and had white skull confetti up the aisle and scattered on the tables. I randomly stumbled across it five days before our wedding in a Halloween sale and I had to have it! I bought them all up for $1.50 a bag.”
“One of the more unique things about out wedding was that we had a surprise wedding party of fourteen. Seven surprise bridesmaids and seven surprise groomsmen. None of them knew they were going to be in the bridal party until about half an hour before the wedding! They all wore their own clothes and they looked great even though no-one matched.”
“Another surprise was our ceremony music. As I said we’re both really into rock music so my entrance song was Astronomy by Metallica, the signing of the register song was I am a River by Foo Fighters and our recessional song we left to was The Game by Motorhead.”
