Michelle & Kieran Oneroa Bay Vineyard – Waiheke Island

A stunning summer day at the exclusive Oneroa Bay Vineyard overlooking Oneroa Village with the blue crystal waters of the gulf sparkling on both sides of the island, was the perfect location for a beautiful wedding on March 24th 2017. This was the day chosen by Michelle Fumalaro and Kieran Hogarty to join their lives forever.

10 months before the wedding Kieran’s proposal plans began by quietly talking with Michelle’s dad Robert about marrying his daughter, it took another 2 long months before he finally dropped to one knee by the pond on the family farm in Christchurch to ask that “all important” question. Michelle’s parents were getting a little worried by that time – starting to think he may have changed his mind :)

Michelle wearing a gorgeous wedding gown and looking radiant, approached her groom on dad Robert’s arm. Flanked by a beautiful floral display, Michelle and Kieran stood together to exchange vows and wedding rings in a time honored ceremony sprinkled with laughter and fun before the magic of the day turned into a true “night to remember”.

For Kieran, loving Michelle means he is with someone he can be himself with, someone who brings out the best and challenges him.  He loves that she even laughs at his jokes although he does admit she sometimes just may laugh hardest at her own :) For Michelle, loving Kieran means every day is a special day, one spent with her best friend – he is definitely the person who makes her happy :)

As a team of two they see their commitment in marriage will be lifelong and firmly believe the path they have happily chosen, will be forever. This is the beginning of a long journey they will take together. Congratulations Michelle & Kieran – Mr & Mrs Hogarty xx
