Christine & Arash live in the US, where they have done for many years after Arash’s family emigrated from Iran and Christine’s Dad emigrated from New Zealand. Years ago, before they were engaged, the couple traveled around New Zealand…. and when they got to the Cardrona Hotel just outside of Wanaka they both fell in love with everything about it…. the area, the building, the pub garden….. and the beer (well… Arash did!!).
When Arash proposed and they started to think about wedding venues, their family thought that they were crazy when they mentioned that they wanted their wedding to be held a 14 hour flight away from their homes….. in New Zealand! But ultimately the Cardrona Hotel won out…. and a year later they were celebrating with their friends and family, most of whom had traveled great distances to be there.
And what a day it turned out to be! Christine & Arash… thank you both so much for being the couple that you are. It was wonderful to feel so welcomed by everyone at your wedding…. and the day was a perfect mix of two fantastic cultures, personalities and families. Enjoy xxx
