The happy couple were wed on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the Royal New Zealand Navy chapel in Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore, in the company of friends and family who came from far and wide to witness Rene and James “finally tying the knot”.

From there the couple and bridal party trekked around North head and Waitamata Golf Course in their “Vee-Dub Combi Van” for some amazing and interesting photos.

The day culminated with an intimate reception at the secluded ferns lodge, where the guests were treated to an extravagant “kiwi” themed reception including table settings, favours, a BBQ dinner, and a selection of kiwi confectionary for desert.
