Weddings are wonderful occasions. They're full of love and happiness, celebrating two people beginning the rest of their lives together. But let’s face it: they're also expensive.
Even when you try do things on a budget, once you've factored in a photographer, the venue, and food, flowers and maybe alcohol, you're still talking many, many thousands of dollars, all for one day.
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together”.
And so was the reason for the formation of Taranaki’s newest wedding initiative - the Ever After Wedding Collective.
The Ever After team are a group of dedicated Taranaki wedding professionals, who as a collective, will make sure couples get to have all those special wedding day details, without the big price tag.
The concept of ‘pop-up weddings’ is not new but our ‘Tie the Knot’ wedding events are now making things seriously affordable for Taranaki couples, because several brides and grooms are sharing the cost of the big day.
In our mini-wedding packages, 90 minutes are allocated to each couple, who pre-book the service and just turn up on the day with their rings, a marriage license, and 30 (or more) guests. Our packages are outstanding value and are providing options for clients who may have previously only considered a registry-office wedding because of cost!
As a vendor group, the members of the Collective are people that we have all worked with many times. This means we know we have the right people for our weddings and we have confidence in our ability to make a couples special day as wonderful as it should be. With this awesome team on board, our clients can be assured of the sort of day they want – without having to worry about dodgy vendors, subpar service or a jaw-dropping bill.
We have worked hard to secure amazing venues, locking in dates and then announcing them for bookings. With a maximum of 3 couples able to book each date, we are able to personalise clients time with us to accommodate touches they will love.
Our packages started from just $2550 and we currently have dates announced for October 2018, January 2019 and February 2019. Our current venues include Stanleigh Garden in Inglewood, Regan House in Stratford, and Okurukuru Bistro in Oakura - with more to come!
