Kushla & Simon: Auckland, New Zealand

Kushla & Simon: Auckland, New Zealand

Names: Kushla Glauser + Simon Child

Wedding date: 28 April 2018

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Kauri Bay Boomrock, AKL

How we met and the marriage proposal: 

We both play hockey - Si saw me playing and messaged me! He proposed on a surprise weekend away - we took a flight in a helicopter and landed on a riverbank. As we walked along, I spotted red rose petals, so I turned around and he was on one knee. The best.

About our wedding day: 

It was in the middle of a storm! But that didn't matter in the slightest. The storm created an amazing energy and vibe. It drew everyone together and it was a really intimate, beautiful evening full of so many laughs. There was a break in the weather for Si and I to take a break and spend some time together outside amongst the trees which was really special.

Our wedding style: 

Minimal, contemporary but classic, white!

Finding my wedding gown: 

It was at the end of a very long day of shopping for the perfect wedding dress. We had flown over from Auckland and hadn't had much luck. However, we had left Suzanne Harward until last. I wasn't going to travel all the way across Melbourne in peak hour traffic, but my best friend made me. I walked in, felt immediately at ease and it was the first dress I tried on! It was so unique (incredible fabrication), contemporary but classic - the perfect dress for me. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

First dance song: 

Earth, Wind & Fire - September. We'd danced to this song on one of our favourite holidays with our best friends - it always brings back the best of memories.

Advice for future couples: 

Don't sweat the small stuff - it doesn't matter on the day. Take some time out with your new husband / wife to watch all your nearest and dearest celebrate with / for you.

Couture experience at Suzanne Harward: 

I will never hesitate to recommend Suzanne Harward and her entire amazing team! From start to finish they made the entire experience stress-free and enjoyable, which was particularly important for me being from NZ. While this dress was my ultimate and most perfect dress (I’d wear it every day if I could), the entire collection was simply stunning. Suzanne Harward has totally nailed it contemporary / classic and I will forever have the best memories of how I felt in the most special of dresses.
