Iain & Leah’s wedding day


Iain and Leah are a delightful couple who have travelled to many different countries around the world.  They currently reside in Melbourne and decided to celebrate their special wedding day in their home town of Nelson.  For Iain and Leah, their wedding day was all about having fun with plenty of laughs and relaxing with friends and loved ones.

Tears don’t last long with Celebrant Tony Barnett.  I have known Tony for many years, he also married Daron and I.  He really makes a wedding ceremony very personal and special.
