Ketana and Rich

Photography by La Rosa Weddings

“We met at Ellerslie Park. It was one of those rave events, like a giant party with everyone having a great time. I spotted him dancing, and he ended up sharing his glowsticks with me. The rest is pretty much history. The proposal was magical. We went on a trip to Queenstown during the winter - it was stunning. He ended up surprising me with one of those personal helicopter rides. I was mesmerised by the view. Next thing I knew, he was proposing to me in the middle of a glacier, knee-deep in the snow! Planning the wedding was a lot of fun. We wanted something super easygoing and relaxed, just like the two of us. Weddings are supposed to be about family and friends, so that’s what we ended up focusing on. The day ended up perfect, with no stress, no drama - just good times. Our photographer, La Rosa, was the icing on the cake: she and her partner made everything so easy and fun, which was especially nice for two awkward people, haha. In the time Rich and I have been together, we’ve created so many memories around New Zealand and the rest of the world. I can’t wait to make even more.”
