If possible contact me as early as you can, just after you have booked your location would be best, or even if you have a rough idea, it's better to get it pencilled in so if someone else calls for that day I can check with you first if you would still require me on the day.
Most popular days are the Saturdays from November to March. But remember Fridays can be just as special, and evening ceremony with a dinner afterwards, it could be cheaper at certain venues to.
Another option is a Sunday lunchtime picnic option, ceremony at 11 with cute picnic blankets and baskets of canapés of picnic food for the reception afterwards.
As Ohope has a wonderfully long summer think about April too.
And remember if you decide on an indoor venue the time of year really doesn't matter, and again venues may offer cheaper options due to lower demands.
If you decide on a small intimate wedding, a weekday wedding, maybe on an anniversary date, could also be an option.
Or if you feel like a winter wonderland wedding why not on Whakapapa or Turoa, I ski and have a season pass and family accomodation to use, so just the travel cost would be added. That way your après ski would have a wonderful vibe to it!
But most importantly please get in touch as soon as possible, as I really don't like having to say no, and want to be as
helpful as possible.
