It’s fair to say that Shelana & Johnny got married at Tuckton Tea Gardens and Christchurch Harbour Hotel on the WETTEST day ever known to man! That being said this was one of my favourite weddings of the year because although it was pouring with rain, Shelana & Johnny completely embraced the weather and proved that even the most torrential of rain can’t ruin your big day. Throughout the entire day the happy couple couldn’t wipe the smiles off their faces and the same went for their guests who really got into the spirit of things and braved a sea voyage between Tuckton tea Gardens and Christchurch Harbour Hotel.
You will see from these photos that Shelana looked absolutely breath taking in her delicate 20’s style Ellis dress and gorgeous head piece, oh and the back necklace, swooooon! The vibrant and sunny flowers by Concept Flowers added a lovely pop of colour to the day. These two are a match made in heaven and it was clear from the emotional ceremony and speeches that they completely and utterly adore each other.
All in all a cracking day for the new Mr & Mrs Ryan, thankfully the sun came out the following day so the newlyweds could enjoy their minimoon!
