I can’t thank you enough for the amazing ceremony. Sorry about getting so emotional, I didn’t see that one coming. Everyone commented on what a great job you did and I think we’ve converted about 50 Australians into NZ lovers. After meeting with you on the Monday it set the tone for the rest of the week and allowed us to be calm leading into the wedding. We knew you understood exactly what we wanted and you put our nerves at ease. You won’t be forgotten!! Thanks Melanie, you played a really important role in the day and I’m so pleased you did.
