WIN A ‘One White Day’ Wedding Worth $3,500
We’re starting the week in the most perfect – and exciting! – way, by offering you the chance to win your own beautifully intimate wedding! Yep, just imagine a completely stress free day, in the most beautiful place on earth, with every little detail in the hands of amazing wedding professionals, where all you have to do is turn up looking absolutely gorgeous – and don’t forget the rings. Well, that’s just what ‘One White Day‘, a collective of fabulous Hawkes Bay wedding professionals, is providing. Bringing together their skills, they create perfectly intimate elopements and unique destination weddings, and today they’re offering you the chance to WIN your very own one white day worth $3,500!
Of course, as a resident, I might be slightly biased but Hawkes Bay, on the North Island of New Zealand, really is the most beautiful place in the world. Boasting art deco architecture, stunning landscapes (that includes white sandy beaches and long winding rivers, as well as snow capped ranges) and award winning wineries, it also makes the most PERFECT destination to say “I do!” And now, thanks to the team at One White Day, planning a celebration here couldn’t be any easier.
One White Day is the brainchild of wedding professionals; celebrant Nichola Nicholson, stylist and florist Toni McGregor of Magdalen Hill and photographer Natalie McNally (whose names and work you will recognise from Chic Vintage Brides’ Bouquet Recipes). Spying a gap in the wedding market, this talented trio decided to create something completely new and oh so exciting, a wedding experience with a real difference! They set about taking the hassle out of planning a big day by designing and organising intimate weddings, perfect for couples looking to elope or celebrate with their very nearest and dearest, at a cost most couples can afford. How did they do all of this without compromising on style or quality? Natalie McNally explains. “We spotted a trend in overseas weddings that really inspired us professionally and creatively – the concept of sharing the cost of your wedding day with other couples! It’s proven to be really popular with all ages and couples who don’t want the stress, cost or feel of a ‘cookie cutter’ wedding”.
And so One White Day was born. With a beautifully styled intimate ceremony incorporating flowers, music, a creative photo session and a stunning venue (with the first being Church Road Winery in Napier) all included in the cost; each day is designed for up to five couples to get married at different times throughout one day, thereby spreading the cost throughout each ‘mini’ wedding. “By sharing the cost, couples can concentrate on love and the romantic act of getting married, which is after all the most important thing!” says co-‐owner Nichola Nicholson.
Whilst you may be sharing the day of your wedding with other couples, the women behind One White Day realise the importance of making sure each wedding is special and unique for the people involved. “We schedule each day to make sure that couples that are celebrating their love through One White Day have enough time for their ceremony and wedding experience. They won’t see any of the other weddings taking place that day and can customise their special day with added extras.” says Nichola.
Doesn’t it all sound perfect! Want to hear a little more about the competition?…..
