There is something very special about the Coromandel, rich in art and history, its coastal location gives it a relaxed seaside country ambiance. If you want to forget the clock, bask in the sun amongst laidback creative people and dine on the freshest innovative cuisine that New Zealand has to offer, then the Coromandel is the place for you.
Due to its beauty and culture, the Coromandel has become an increasingly popular place for weddings and celebrations, the abundance of beautiful venues and services can cater to any wedding requests.
Coromandel weddings tend to have the same laid back beauty as the area itself, anything from simple, exquisite regional food to nature inspired centrepieces. Barefoot beach brides and Pohutakawa posies abound in this gorgeous setting.
The one thing that can seem out of place is the formality of traditional wedding vows, which seem more at home in a church setting. Luckily we are at leisure to craft our own vows these days and can create the perfect vows to show our love in style fitting manner.
Some people will have no problem in crafting their vows, but if you are having a hard time coming up with ideas, we’ve found a few to start you off for your Coromandel wedding ceremony. Remember that these are guidelines, feel free to mix them up and make changes to suit your own tastes, stamp some originality on them.
- I promise to love and care for you, and I will try in every way to be worthy of your love.
I will always be honest with you, kind, patient and forgiving.
I promise to try to be on time.
But most of all, I promise to be a true and loyal friend to you.
I love you.
- You are my inspiration and my soul’s fire.
You are the magic of my days.
You help me laugh, you teach me love.
You provide a safe place for me, unlike I’ve ever known.
You free me to sing my own song.
You are more of an amazement to me, each day I rediscover you.
You are my greatest boon.
I am yours.
You are mine.
Of this we are certain.
You are lodged in my heart.
The small key is lost.
You must stay there forever.
- I love you for your beauty, your intelligence, your kindness…and for the way you always know how to make me feel so special. So on top of all the other vows that I will make to you on our wedding day, I also vow to always appreciate how lucky I am to have someone who makes me feel the way you do and to continue to try as hard as I can to make you feel as special as you make me feel, forever and ever.
- I promise to be there when you need me, to fill your days with sunshine, to comfort you and encourage you, to help you reach your goals, to be your best friend ever and to love you all my life with all my heart.
Just a few simple but heartfelt words is all that is needed to compliment a wedding embracing the spirit of the Coromandel. Whether you dream them yourself, or borrow from another, your wedding will be as special and unique as you and your partner are.
