Q. Why did you choose Allely Estate as your Wedding venue?

Allely Estate stood out from the rest! It was picture perfect, had the rustic & vintage feel we wer3 going for. Just amazing. Also the service we received from the beginning of the wedding planning stage to the wedding day was top tier. Definitely everything we needed in a wedding venue.

Theme – Rustic Vibe – Bring the energy ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Q. Tell us about your favourite wedding moment?

We honestly cannot pick a favourite wedding moment ๐Ÿ˜‚ we have too many! It was just an amazing wedding.

Q. What special touches were important to you?

The remembrance table.

Centre peices & decor. Ensuring that the decorations helped to complement the venue

Q. What advice do you have for other couples?

Live in the moment. Enjoy every moment as it comes because it passes real fast!

Q. How did you both meet? What is your personal 'love story'?

We met at Otahuhu College in 2009. It was our last year of college. I was the deputy head girl and Jonathan was the new kid in school (he repeated because he was naughty the year before lol).

We use to just pass by each other at school but never really said anything just that awkward look and smile๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

Wasn’t till around October there was a year 13 project in the art room and we were both involved. I forgot my umbrella in the room that day and so I texted the art students who were the last ones to leave if they found my umbrella.

One of the students replied back saying “ask Jonny, I’ll give you his number.”

All I wanted was my umbrella but I obviously I got more than that๐Ÿ˜‚

13 years later Mr and Mrs NERU๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
