Chris and Sarah met through work in the United Kingdom and their relationship has grown over the years to the point where they wanted to make a marriage commitment to each other. Not wanting to organise a big wedding or be in the spotlight, they searched for an overseas location to enjoy an intimate wedding.

When searching for the right location they considered New Zealand. They had friends that lived here, and an internet search turned up some beautiful locations including The Resurgence Eco-Lodge in the Nelson region.

Sarah and Chris contacted New Zealand Wedding Packages to help put together their Eco Lodge wedding and everything was set for their arrival.

They enjoyed a 2 night stay in the luxurious Bush Suites with their friends, indulging in the amazing food and spectacular scenery. They even managed to fit in a kayaking trip in the Abel Tasman National Park! The wedding started with the Hair and Makeup artists arriving at Sarah’s Suite to help get her ready. Kimberly, their personal planner, had arrived to help ensure everything ran to plan, and soon Ginnie, their photographer and Rachael, the celebrant arrived as well.

The wedding was held on a small platform overlooking the valley and bush clad mountains. It began with Sarah walking up the path and looking amazing!

The ceremony was intimate and personal and just what Chris and Sarah were looking for. Congratulations were given at the end before everyone retreated to the Suite for a glass of bubbles.

Some special memories were created that day and it was a privilege to have been a part of it.
