What were your thoughts when you saw her walking towards you? Wow! A physical feeling of ‘Mana’ – a Maori word for prestige and pride

On one of the most breath-taking backdrops in Port Stephens, The Anchorage housed a day of infinite day of love as Jenna and Mike sealed their fate in true style with incredible cultural traditions, festivities galore, but best of all, with the presence of their beautiful newborn beauty, Luca.

Beauty overflowed from the waterfront vicinity as Jenna spent a morning cherishing moments with Luca that only a mother could dream of. Matching flower crowns and heartfelt kisses were amongst the many, while the presence of her closest loved ones provided laughs and excitement as she prepared to marry her soul mate.

As love conquers all, there is no love greater than that of family – and these values were held so true throughout the celebration of marriage for Jenna and Mike. Excitement levels shot through the roof and the dance floor was burning up within seconds, but it was the emotionally exuded ‘Huka’ that demonstrated the pride and commitment Mike holds for his family and heritage. The beautifully noted Maori details kept rolling out throughout the day paying tribute to those who were attending physically and in mind and spirit.

‘Mike wore a Korowai, a feathered cloak, that represented where he is from, his culture, as well as all the family and friends who could not be with us on the day but are with us in spirit. The Haka is a sign of unity, strength and respect. ‘Waiata’ is when somebody speaks they are followed by a song from their region – this was done after the Groom’s father spoke’.

A lifetime of adventure to you,
