Tessa & Raymundo
They met in Tijuana, Mexico, while travelling for work, instantly they felt a connection. Following on from when they first met, they remained friends for around 6 months before Ray travelled to Auckland for work where they then went on their first date. In March 2018, Ray popped the question whilst on Holiday in Cancun for his sister’s wedding. With a room full of rose petals and candles, Tessa had an idea of what was going on but had to nervously wait till later on in the night when he asked the question.
Tessa wore the Saylor by Sottero and Midgley, ““I had always wanted a Maggie Sottero dress and I knew that beautiful beadwork and sparkles were likely to win me over, but I could have sworn I wouldn't be a princess dress bride. But Saylor is so stunning and regal and yet very comfortable.. and bonus pockets!! I had my eye on it on the website and in the end, despite the fact I will always be in love with Ettia, Saylor was the one! I must mention the incredible support and advice of Ilyese. She made a process I had been dreading for months, incredibly easy and enjoyable. My love to the whole team at Astra Auckland... they are the just the sweetest!”
Their wedding took place on the 2nd of February 2020, celebrating with their closest family and friends with a wedding that fused together Spanish and English cultures. Everything came together beautifully, allowing Tessa and Raymundo to fully enjoy their special day! Congratulations to this gorgeous couple
