Wedding of the week: Hana & Aidan Short

Some blind dates do lead to marriage...

After meeting four years ago on a blind date at Hana’s uncle’s wedding, this pair made the trip up to Russell in the Bay of Islands for their own special day.

Their 125 guests filled up the town in the days leading up to the wedding, and with the sun shining they said their vows in the beautiful heritage gardens at Pompallier House.

They celebrated at the Duke of Marlborough hotel with a whole lot of good food and dancing.
