The first time I spoke to Frank on the phone, he told me he had chosen the Howick Historical Village wedding chapel for his I do’s to Jessica. He then followed up by letting me know that he had already booked a date and that happened to be just over a month from then! Not only that, Jessica was in Japan and would only be arriving a week before the wedding… Along with all of their guests!! Once I had a chance to register just what he was saying I went into full planner mode! We had a job to do and a very limited time frame to do it in and we needed to get cracking! We created a super strict time line and I must be honest, we were running on early mornings, late nights and copious amounts of coffee, but within 2 weeks we had finalised the big ticket items, including their guest’s flights and accommodation, and our invites were in the mail. There was going to be a wedding… By the time Jessica arrived in Auckland all she had to worry about was having her hair and make up trial with the amazing Sophie Beddoes and our ceremony rehearsal. The rest was sorted and she could just enjoy the lead up to the wedding.
