What we travelled around the world to attend to, a real Maori wedding. I was asked to be the best man and I can't refuse this to my best man. You see Honiana is my best man from nearly 20 years back, I am still married, Honiana ;ø)
We are in Te Tii up north on the North Island.
|Honiana and Amber, she is quite good looking|
|Honiana to the left and the Norwegian to the right quite adorable or what?|
There were more welcoming in Maori and I felt the tear pressing once again, for me this was like being on a small island in the pacific, and that is exactly what it was, but it wasn't a small island it is the New Zealand North island.
Howie mentions in his speech the dress Amber and I was wearing, the Vestfold bunad and we felt both proud of this, actually he mentioned it 2 or 3 times. It was now time for the bride to come inside and we heard the bagpipes, Maria har Scottish ancestor. Wow when she arrived in tears with her father in her right arm, I started crying again and Liam was in tears as well. Can't blame him for this, cause this was a beautiful moment for all of us. Howie had some nice thing to say to the couple, but I can't remember it all.
|In the background you she the lady that did the Karanga, man this was so cool.|
|Maria you are the sweetest bride ever.|
|This is pure beauty. Brie-Ann Timings took the official photos. This one is mine. ;ø) |
|Then there was cake.|
|This was picked in the garden, remember it is mid winter down here.|
