Lauren & Willis | Olive Grove Wedding

Lauren & Willis met in halls during their first year of unicol. Little did they know that this meeting would be the start of a beautiful future together. After 7 years of pot luck dinners, house parties, rugby matches and ‘WAG’ events it was time to make it official. Fast forward to March 2019 and these wonderful humans would finally tie the knot in front of an impressive 150 guests!
Lauren is an Otago girl from way back, having grown up and studied in Dunedin. Her family made the move to Wanaka permanently a few years back which meant that a lakeside wedding was a must. Willis is a Nelson boy but has spent a large amount of time in Wanaka with Lauren’s family in their time together as a couple.
Despite the hefty guest list a lot of details about their wedding day were intimately executed with the help of friends and family. From the flowers, to the marquee, even the celebrant was a friend. There was no way that Lauren couldn’t include her 3 gorgeous sisters as her bridesmaids with the added help of course from a couple more close friends, whilst Willis enlisted the help of his brother and ‘brothers from other mothers’ to make sure they all made it down the aisle in one piece.

These guys knew how to throw one hell of a party, with their main emphasis being on spending as much time with their guests as they could. The dance floor was rocking and it’s safe to say that Lauren & Willis know how to wedding in style.
