Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship…
Josh is a doctor, Courtney is a pharmacist, we met while we were studying in Otago as neighbours on Castle Street – which is unique in itself. We love that we have practically grown up together as adults, we share lots of memories together of important milestones in both of our lives.

What do you love most about each other?
We both love that eachother are outgoing and always working towards the next exciting thing in life, whether it may be a job promotion, a new skill or travel.

Tell us about your special day…
The girls got ready at Courts bridesmaid Lisa’s house and got to do claybrid shooting off the front lawn, the boys had a nice morning playing a round of golf at the Te Puke Gold Course.
We were so lucky to have such amazing weather on our wedding day and be surrounded my so many of our friends and family. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Was there a specific theme or style? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details…
We wanted to focus on having a slightly more formal attire but more rustic style to the venue.

What went to plan and what didn’t?
Everything went to plan except a slight hickup with music and a bluetooth connection for the aisle song – always use a cable!

Tell us about your main outfits, what was unique, is there a story?
Courts dress was from Rue de Seine, it was the first dress her mum cried about when she walked out. Joshs suit from Hugo Boss looked exactly as he had imagined for his wedding day, his dad liked it so much he went and bought a similar one later that week.
Court had her bridesmaid dresses made in Vietnam when she was on a trip there with her sister, she also had the groomsmens bow ties made in matching fabric.

What were some of the most memorable/unique moments from the day?
The most memorable moment of the day for Josh was seeing all of his best friends and family arriving to come and celebrate his wedding, while he was waiting for Court to walk down the aisle. For Court the most memorable thing was laughing with her best friends while getting their bridal photos taken by their amazing photographer.

Any advice for other couples planning to spend the rest of their lives together?
