“Maree and Brad Wheeler couldn’t be happier with their dream wedding, made possible by Simply Wed and Woman’s Day combining to give away a luxury ceremony and reception.
The Auckland couple’s love story is all the more compelling because Brad has lost almost 100kg over the past four years.
As his beautiful bride walked down the aisle he shed a few tears thinking about how much he’d changed.
“My life is worlds apart now,” he said after the ceremony. “I never thought I would get married when I was bigger, I never thought I’d find my person. Now here I am.”
The 30 person ceremony was held at the Sculptureum in Matakana on April 6.
Maree had been following Simply Wed online and could hardly believe her luck when she was told she was the winner of Woman’s Day’s summer wedding giveaway.
“I’d been reading about pop-up weddings and loved the idea – it sounded perfect for us.”
Brad smiles, “It was small, stress-free and everything we wanted for our day.”
Above is an excerpt from Woman’s Day.
We loved seeing Maree & Brad featured in Woman’s Day. All the best to these gorgeous newlyweds!
Brad and I were very privileged to experience a Simply Wed Luxe Pop-up wedding at Sculptureum this month. The professional team at Simply Wed ensured our special day was perfect and flawless. They were so easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to ensure things were just right.
The venue, cake & flowers were outstanding and well above our expectation. Our celebrant and photographer are true professionals adding a wonderful vibe. Planning a wedding can be extremely challenging and time-consuming but Ruth & Louise have a wealth of experience. This allowed us to relax and enjoy our wedding day, knowing everything was in good hands. We highly recommend Simply Wed.
