Daniel & Sarah – Vela Images

Gorgeous Greta from Vela images is sharing the love with us this Monday, with a beautiful Summer Auckland wedding. Daniel and Sarah we’re married at the Maclaurin Chapel, university of Auckland. Followed by the reception at ‘the Northern Club‘. I’m loving the stunning images taken in the lush green grounds. Check below to see all of the vendor information and Daniel and Sarah’s story.

Most emotional moment? Saying goodbye to my Grandparents after the ceremony. My Grandmother passed away soon after our wedding, so it was very special to have my Grandparents attend. The moment you laughed the most? Finding out that my parents had booked the Musical Island Boys to sing during dinner as a surprise. How did you meet? We actually met in 2002 at university and were friends while we were studying. After graduation I moved to New York and we lost touch until I moved back to New Zealand. When I got home, Daniel took me on a date to see Alice in Wonderland at the movies. We married 1000 days later.

How did the proposal go? The proposal was amazing. We were on vacation in Portugal and visited a beautiful little town called Sintra, which is a World Heritage site and actually the town that Disneyland was modelled on. There are two castles and a palace that you can visit there. We were visiting the Moorish castle, and Daniel proposed in the highest turret. It was very exciting as I had no idea that he was going to propose and Daniel had even chosen a ring and asked my Father’s permission already
