Wedding

We need to back track a little.  The middle weekend that we were at Otamure Bay (Whananaki) and the weekend before “the” stormy weather,  we hopped into the RAV and drove down to Tauranga for the weekend as our niece Jenna was getting married.  We left Otamure by 9am on the Friday morning, finally arriving in Tauranga at 5pm.  Yes, we did have a couple of stops along the way but not too many or not for long either!

The wedding took place on the Saturday afternoon at Mills Reef Winery, a lovely location.  The bridal party left from the motel we were all staying at which was not too far from the venue.  Jenna’s two younger sisters, Amy and Rebekka, were her bridesmaids.

Jenna is Bernice’s sister Hilary’s daughter, which meant that 4 of the 6  siblings were there for the nuptials.

A lovely wedding and weekend away, but it was a long drive back for us with a stop off at brother Steve’s (thanx for the lunch) in Auckland along the return journey.
