About Hawke’s Bay Pop-up Weddings

Looking for a way to get hitched without the stress of planning, booking and outlaying too much financially? While still enjoying a special occasion you’ll remember for years to come? How about a pop-up wedding? Think of it as the equivalent of the “Tiny House” – a small but perfectly formed wedding in a beautiful venue with an experienced celebrant and a crack-shot photographer!

Since becoming a celebrant 10 or so years ago, I have married many many couples, in ceremonies big and small. I have seen a lot of trends come and go, and something I’ve noticed in recent years is a move towards shorter and simpler weddings. Wedding planning can be stressful – think ever-increasing invite lists, budget blow-outs, to-do lists a mile long…

Enter the pop-up or flash wedding – they’re “popping up” across the ditch in Australia, in the UK, all over the USA, and in Aotearoa too. So I thought why not Hawke’s Bay? We have some of the country’s best weather – extraordinary venues, and a whole community of amazing florists, photographers, cakers and stylists. And of course Hawke’s Bay is Wine Country, complemented by a growing number of talented craft beer and cider makers.

So, if you want a simple, stylish, individual and fun wedding that doesn’t break the bank, book in for one of our wedding events – popping up in Hawke’s Bay. 90 minutes of wedding day essentials: a gorgeous venue, celebrant, bouquet, bubbly & canapes, cake and a photographer to capture the unforgettable moments.

You dress up (or dress down!?) and bring the paperwork. All you need to do then is walk in with your betrothed and up to 24 special guests and walk out hitched 90 minutes later, leaving everything else up to us.
