Michael and Lisa

Photography by As Sweet As Images

All Lisa wanted for her wedding day was to have a fun, easy day, and have the best time with Michael, and their friends and family. Both her and Michael come from large families who are really close, and they wanted to find a venue where they could spend the whole weekend with everyone for a wedding experience instead of just the day. Castaways fitted their dream perfectly. The venue was so beautiful that Michael had chosen it before he’d even proposed. He’d visited the venue when they were still dating and fell in love with it instantly. Growing up Lisa spent a lot of time on the west coast of New Zealand, at her family’s holiday home, so Castaways and the rugged scenery that was so familiar to her seemed like the perfect choice.
