Secluded Beneath the Trees

Aaron McLoughlin Celebrant Christchurch

It was a stunning day – one of the hot ones in Christchurch this year – when a small gathering of family and friends came together to celebrate the marriage of Leo and Natsuko.

The George Hotel in Christchurch is a beautiful setting for an intimate wedding. The wedding took place in the tree scaped courtyard garden which is hidden from the street and gives this feeling of being ‘away from it all’. The reception dinner was held in The Residence which seats about 20 people.

As part of the ceremony, the newlywed couple cut a cake – a beautiful ceremony to symbolise taking care of each other. A tree was also planted – representing growing together, deep roots of love and taking care of this living marriage.

The staff at The George were absolutely fabulous – nothing was an issue.
