Fleur & Andre – Magical Moments at Mudbrick

Rickshaw Eddy’s Bar in Mission Bay set the scene for an encounter that would change 2 lives forever and although neither was looking for it at the time, Fleur & Andre quickly fell in love.

A group of hung over girls on one table, a group of hung over boys on a neighbouring table and conversation sparked…that was the “beginning” of today – Fleur and Andre’s wedding day!

Chris, Andre’s father can’t think of anyone more valued that Fleur to relinquish his business class seat to, he considered being relegated to tourist class was worthwhile to gain a daughter-in-law like Fleur! :) .

A romantic proposal at Chateau Tongariro on a stunning winters evening was made even more special when Fleur discovered the engagement ring came from her step-fathers jeweller back in the UK. “Permission to marry” via a Skype call to Richard, Fleur’s dad at home in England, had Andre’s question answered with simply “good luck!”- Defiantly said with a smile :)

On April 14th Fleur made a stunning entrance in her gorgeous ivory gown on the arm of her father – she followed her 3 beautiful bridesmaids dressed in gold, down the aisle at The Lodge where overlooking the shimmering Hauraki Gulf and tranquil summer scenery of The Mudbrick grounds Andre waited with his attendants and a huge smile.

Fleur and Andre know that a good marriage is not only about marrying the right person, but becoming the best version of yourself. A successful marriage is one where the life you share is equal in love, trust and respect and they know marriage is forever – for them forever isn’t long enough.
