We couldn’t have asked for better weather on this Spring like day, last Sunday, 12 August 2018, when Jackson and Caroline were married at Abbeville Estate. This venue is a hidden gem, located out by Manukau Airport in Auckland, New Zealand. If you haven't been there before, you wouldn't know it existed!
Abbeville Estate showcases beautiful historic buildings, which is perfect for a wedding and makes a lovely backdrop for photos.
Caroline and her bridesmaids got ready at Abbeville Estate, with hair and makeup done by the artists from the Honey Tree. What an amazing job they did! After some pre gin and tonics, it was showtime
Jackson got ready with his groomsmen and then proceeded to have some time and a beer with Caroline’s brother, Paul at the Manukau Memorial Gardens before getting married.
The guys arrived in style in the Chrysler to the ceremony.
Caroline looked beautiful as her two sons walked her down the aisle to Jackson in his styled white suit jacket.
There were many speeches and performances throughout the night from the Fijian and Samoan sides of the family. Lots of singing and dancing all round. There was great choreography to the song 'Day-O'.
Thanks to all the staff at Abbeville and the Great Catering Co, who did amazing work from start to finish for the big day.
To Jackson and Caroline, a lovely day, you are perfectly matched and we saw the love you have for one another. Best wishes for your life together Mr and Mrs Ratunigaloa.
