We had a fantastic summers day in January 2019 celebrating TJ Perenara and Greer Samuel surprise wedding with 130 of their family and friends on a beautiful hot summers day in the gardens.
With a marquee incase some people got too hot (was set up incase Wellington’s weather decided to play up), bean bags on the lawns, along with our outside tables and umbrellas, it was so hot we needed them.
The boys played cricket and plenty of games to keep the guests amused why TJ and Greer had their photos taken by Woman’s Day, you can see how beautiful Greer looked on February 4th issue.
Later on in the evening the guests danced the night away under the blue sky, while we kept them well fed and watered.
