Hello Kitty Backyard Wedding

We love love love offbeat weddings! And we waited for so long to share this one with you. Though we are so happy to relive this special experience again today and all the waiting to be featured on Rock’n’Roll Bride was definitely worth it.

When Vikki and Jason contacted us and shared the idea of how they want their Big Day to be we just fell in love with the idea. It was a connection from the first sight during our “meeting” on Skype as guys were in UK where they actually live. A big respect to them for a huge work they did during planning and organizing two weddings – one in UK and other one in NZ for Jason’s family. We were lucky to capture the New Zealand part.

It was one of those weddings where couple wasn’t afraid to express themselves as they are to celebrate their love and it turned out beautiful and very creative. Their little DIY backyard wedding held at Jason’s parents place in Auckland was so laid back, filled with warmth and laugh of all the family and school friends reunited one again, almost like a big Christmas celebration, but better. Thanks to Vikki for a little narration you can read bellow.

“My mother and sisters-in-law were amazing in getting our brightly coloured vision and our laid back family garden BBQ wedding theme. For both weddings we just wanted everyone to have fun and to enjoy themselves. Our dress code was ‘whatever makes you comfortable’. We were not going to be wearing anything uncomfortable, so we didn’t want our guests to either. Some people found it difficult to get their heads around, but others really appreciated it.”

“We loved how personal it was having a wedding at home. It was really special getting ready together. We didn’t have anyone do our hair, we helped each other. Jason helped me get my dress on and we walked down the aisle together. It made the day a lot less stressful, knowing that we didn’t have to worry about travelling between venues and knowing that once the day had ended we were already home. It was also meaningful to plant a rose in the garden as part of the ceremony, because it felt like we were leaving a permanent reminder of the day behind.”

When the celebrant started his speech with a quote about ‘giving and receiving’ from ‘Friends’ we couldn’t help but giggle and feel a new wave of the connection with these two as we are big fans of the show.

Our creative session took place at Moorfields Estate where we had an opportunity to jump into a vintage car and teleport to the late 1800’s to the 1980’s at gas station collection.

“The bridal bouquet was made by Jason’s sister, with a bit of help from the whole family. Jason’s mum made my Hello Kitty garter and I made some more duct tape flowers for the tables. Our amazing Hello Kitty cake was made by a family friend and was based on another cake that I’d seen on Rock n Roll Bride! The BBQ buffet was also done for us by a friend which helped us save money.”
