Lily & Pablo

Can you tell us a little about how you met?

We met in Wellington on Tinder, I'm from Wellington and Pablo was training at the Police College for a few months. We dated a while and then decided to ty a long distance relationship when he went home to Northland.

What made you choose The Duke of Marlborough?

Pablo was raised in Russell and the first trip I made to Northland to see him he took me  to see his home and we went out to dinner at the Duke. It was an amazing introduction to Northland and made me think I could be really happy relocating North. We wanted a fuss free wedding in a beautiful location that showcased the Bay of Islands.

How did you find your experience planning your wedding at The Duke of Marlborough?

The team at The Duke were so great to work with. Everything was slick and polished, the little details were covered. We did not need to have a stressful set up or pack down and the communication and support was outstanding.

If you could give one tip to couples ahead of their big day, what would it be?

Keep it simple. All the little details you could stress over don’t really matter in the grand scheme. If you have a good location, good food and good music your guests will love it.
