Swati & Saurabh

Following a large Hindu celebration the week before, Swati & Saurabh with some of their family arrived at my home high on the hill overlooking stunning ocean and valley views of Waiheke Island and the Hauraki Gulf, on a rainy afternoon in October 2017 to make their vows in a legal New Zealand marriage. True soul mates who share a sense of direction. they have discovered mutual love and respect, have much in common with both likes and dislikes … and especially a love of food along with the delights of travel discovering and exploring the world together.

With heartfelt vows taken under cover from showers with large Pohutukawa trees framing the scene, as the documents were signed the sun suddenly peeped through the clouds  long enough to take photos.  Congratulations, were shared over a glass of bubbly, cake and nibbles. Coming across from Auckland especially for the ceremony their wedding day concluded with an evening meal in the city.
