Meet Isobel Masters | Married in New Zealand 2016
It is so hard to pick one thing that was special, as I am sure every one will struggle with this question, my wedding felt like a crazy blur of an insanely special thing, followed by another insanely special thing. But one thing I remember very vividly, was during the ceremony. At one point, when I was trying to reign in the tears and hold it together, I turned to look at (what I thought) would be a calming face. A face that would stop me from getting so swept up with all the emotions - the groomsmen! So I looked straight into the eyes of Shaun's (my husband) long standing bestie and dapper groomsman. Always a laugh and never a moment NOT made fun of, I was sure this would be a safe bet. But, as to my surprise, he was brimming with tears and grinning from ear to ear. Needless to say he was no help in getting my composure back!
I currently live in London, but am a kiwi girl. All my friends know that I miss RUBY almost as much as I do them, so picking a RUBY wedding dress was a no-brainer. (In fact I even wore a RUBY playsuit to get ready in and was pleased to see the celebrant rocked up in a gorgeous RUBY dress too - meant to be!) Working on a wedding from the wrong side of the world isn’t easy, but it never felt like a challenge with the Celebrations team. Every email was swiftly answered, fabric swatches arrived promptly and they worked with me to ensure I got exactly what I wanted (despite never being there to try it on in person). The ease of the process was what I loved most about your service. That and receiving my amazing dress, obviously!

Meet Sarah Helm | Married in New Zealand 2016
The whole day was very special, there is something very magical about marrying your best friend in front of your closest friends and family. One thing that I didn't plan was one of my bridesmaids had prepared a playlist of songs to help ease the nerves whilst we were getting ready. This was filled with every girls ultimate girly song and once we were all ready the room turned into a big dance floor, it was like a scene out of the movies. I'm not sure the hair stylist would have been happy but it was so much fun and a lovely moment I got to share with my girls before walking down the aisle.
I loved every moment working with the Celebrations team. I didn't know exactly what I wanted and the girls were very patient and helped me piece together not only a beautiful dress but one that suited me. They had my best interests at heart and made the whole experience very special. They were exceptionally talented and before I could even suggest anything, they had thought of it. The Celebrations team were the loveliest group of girls and I can't wait until I need another special dress so that I can come back.

Meet Katherine Lovelock | Married in New Zealand 2015
It was amazing to have our good friends, Lawrence Arabia play at our wedding, which we kept a surprise to our guests. My Husband organised his young relatives to set off gold confetti guns from the balcony of Hope Toun Alpha which rained down on us when the band was revealed during our first dance. Quite a good distraction as we ran out of time to practice our first dance!
The whole experience was perfect. Aimee found a roll of beautiful floral silk, which had just enough to make my dress. It was meant to be! I felt completely relaxed and myself on my Wedding day, as I was wearing a dress that had been designed and made just for me.
Being able to select your own style, fabric and fit saved me from trawling Bridal stores in the hunt for what I wanted - the whole experience was just so easy.

Meet Anna Coe | Married in New Zealand 2015
We held the reception at my childhood home which was transformed in a way that I could never have imagined. Our florist Naomi (from Leaf and Honey) made the tent area completely magical with flower garlands hanging from the central tree and amazing arrangements all around - I literally couldn't believe how amazing it looked.
Aimee was super easy to work with - she understood exactly what I wanted right from the start. Nothing was too much to ask and they were very flexible with fitting times (as two of my bridesmaids are not based in Auckland). The dresses were absolutely perfect - and fitted Anna, Sarah and Fra like a glove.
