Nelly and Andres formal Kirkton Park elopement

As a Celebrant, I’d truly like nothing more than to help make your wedding day exactly the one you want. If you’re like Nelly and Andres and want an elegant, formal wedding with traditional elements, in front of only 6 guests, then felicitaciones you’ve come to the right place!!

Nelly and Andres are married! They had only 6 guests physically present in the Manor Garden at Kirkton Park Hotel Hunter Valley, but their families watched live from Colombia, Argentina and Spain via video stream, as Nelly and Andres exchanged simple, romantic vows that they had written themselves. 

Nelly walked down an aisle, strewn with rose petals, to the music played live by d’Amore Ensembles. As someone who admits to crying when she hears the Wedding March, this was a tough gig to hold back tears. The music was beautiful. I attempted a sincere welcome to Nelly and Andres’ international guests, watching from their homes, in some fairly rough Spanish… “Gracias por acompañarnos hoy”

Thierry Boudan Photography was the perfect choice of photographer to capture the ceremony and celebrations after. I actually squealed when I heard who Nelly had booked as their photographer. Having worked with, and personally been  photographed by Thierry, we had a great rapport and provided a relaxed team approach to ensuring this wedding was as special for the small guest list as it would’ve been if there were hundreds of guests present.

Nelly’s bouquet and Andres’ buttonhole flowers were unbelievably beautiful by Yeng Tan Floral Designer. Pastel pink roses covered the arbor and the guests were seated by the aisle marked with roses flowing from buckets on shepherd’s hooks.

Nelly and Andres sent me these kind words that summarise how they felt about their Vows Now wedding:

Dear Johanna,
A big thank you for all your support during the wedding preparation and on the day. We really appreciated your help with the wedding vows, it made it so much easier. We were very glad to receive all our documentation only a few days after the wedding. Thanks for sorting that out for us.
I would like to add that our guests were delighted with your little intro in Spanish. It was a very nice touch!… We loved having Johanna as our wedding celebrant. She understood exactly what we wanted for our special day and designed everything accordingly. We also enjoyed her enthusiasm and charisma at all times”

Thank you Nelly and Andres for inviting me to share your wedding day.
