Hannah Laity Beauden Barrett walking through confetti after their wedding

Hannah + Beauden

All Black superstar and “World Player of the Year” Beauden Barrett married the stunning Hannah Laity in what has been described as “the Wedding of the Year”.
Meeting Hannah and Beauden was a pretty surreal moment for the owners of Twelve Tables, Sara and Jean, but as you can image, they were overwhelmed by the happy couple, who were down to earth and completely in-love.

Hurakia Lodge on Rakino Island, perched on a hill with 360-degree views of the Hauraki Gulf and just a five-minute helicopter ride from the Auckland CBD, made the perfect wedding venue for Hannah and Beauden. It provided not only privacy but an experience for their guests too, who were ferried from Auckland to their private celebration.

When we were contacted by Hannah and Beauden’s Wedding Planner all those months ago, though at the time unaware of who the special clients were, we knew that from One Fine Day’s reputation, it was going to be a spectacular day.

Our 33m Clear Marquee with White Wooden Flooring provided the perfect canvas for H & B’s modern and romantic wedding reception.

The images from the photographers, Stephan and Nakita speak for themselves, but as you can see, One Fine Day organized and styled an incredible day, that our team at Twelve Tables were proud to be a part of.

Having creative control of custom building various items, which are now available for hire on our website, was an exciting process and a highlight of planning this spectacular day.

latest loves sarah and vinny wedding with womens day

Sarah + Vinnie

Silver medalist and BMX Champion, Sarah Walker married her soul mate, Vinnie Elliot, in a stunning ceremony at a private property in Cambridge.

S + V’s choice of date for their wedding was thoughtful and deliberate, much like Vin’s well-planned proposal. 01.01.2019 was determined to be their special day #1 because it marked a new year, new goals and new opportunities.

Their venue was equally well-planned and chosen for various reasons. Both loving the outdoors, it was important for Sarah and Vin to get married amongst nature, surrounded by beautiful farmland and overlooking Cambridge.

With guidance from P.S I Love You Events, Sarah and Vin reflected their natural venue in their styling, using tones of forest green with a large dance floor overlooking their panoramic views. Table-to-floor linen tablecloths brought a touch of romance and elegance, while a huge balloon installation added a playful tone to their reception.

A well planned and beautiful day, that Twelve Tables were honoured to be a part of.

Claire and Fraser

Claire and Fraser were married at Claire’s family’s bach in Flaxmill Bay. From our first site visit, we were welcomed like friends, with coffees on arrival and beers on departure, which gave returning for setup additional excitement, helping what felt like new friends, create their dream day.

With a cake made by The Caker, Claire and Fraser wanted to share that joy with their guests ASAP, which is why they chose to celebrate with cake and champagne straight after their ceremony. The essence of Claire and Frasers wedding day can be summed up in these heartwarming words from Claire vows, ‘love means knowing that no matter what, you have someone that’s in your corner’.

Claire and Fraser, it was an honour to meet both you and your family. Thank you for choosing Twelve Tables to help create your day!

Lauren and Shon

Topping off a very busy wedding season for our family, Lauren (Sara’s sister) and Shon’s wedding in Whitianga was a night that will go down in history. The father of the bride and his cohort, tested out the durability of Twelve Tables furniture by dancing the night away on the tables (though not something we condone, we are glad to say they survived).

Lauren and Shon’s reception was held inside a flight hanger, proving that our wooden tables and bench seats look just as great indoors as they do in our clear marquees.

Briede and Shanon

Briede’s goal of a relaxed and natural wedding was made possible by the couples own chilled personalities. Their wedding reflected a strong family focus with the couple married at Briede’s family farm in Whakatane. The stunning dried floral arrangements adorning the marquee, created by Honey Bee Wild Flowers, were a work of art. Wet weather on the day, did nothing but highlight their folksy vibe and create a warm whimsical atmosphere.

Brooke and Logan

It’s always a privilege attending weddings, particularly when we get to see our clear marquee and furniture from the perspective of a guest. School friends of Jean, Logan and Brooke, were married at Mayward Homestead in Te Puna, a venue nestled in nature, which was perfect for this organic inspired wedding.

Logan, a beekeeper, treated his guests to a taste of his produce, with honeypots as wedding favors.

Having a clear marquee allowed their guests unforgettable and stunning evening sunset views. It made us think about all the glorious reasons we love being involved in celebrations. Witnessing true love of two special friends, surrounded by a picturesque setting on what was a perfect Summers day. Always appreciative, it was and absolute pleasure for us to be a part of your special day!

Clear marquee from twelve tables - wedding party under a clear roof

Ellen and Jason

Our initial communication with Ellen and Jason began with the subject line ‘HELP!’. Ellen had been hunting for someone to provide her wedding look for months and was pumped when she stumbled across our clear marquees, and so were we! Admittedly Ellen had a beautiful vision for her wedding, so the standard was set high. The bar leaners were custom made, with creative input from Ellen herself.

Working with amazing couples like Ellen and Jason is what keeps us striving to provide unparalleled service. This is echoed in Ellens testimonial for Twelve Tables; ‘meeting these two made it more obvious how important it is to work with great people’.

Ellen and Jason, we are forever grateful to have been a part of your magical day.
