Real Wedding – Michael + Jena

Michael + Jena Wedding Honey

REAL WEDDING INSPIRATION | At Wedding Honey we don’t get to physically share the wedding day with our couples. We work with them before their wedding to plan their perfect wedding favour for their guests. We package up the pure honey with their custom labels and gift boxes and then post it out to them straight to their door. For Kelly and I, it is hearing from the couples when they settle into their married lives, about what the little thank you gifts meant to their family and friends. Hearing stories about Honey on toast the day after the wedding and how grateful they are. And of cause the couples sharing how beautiful the little jars looked on their table settings. The delight of being able to send our product to the couple means we get to work with people all around Australia. One of our brides from 2017Jena shared these amazing photos of her day with us from her wedding in beautiful Byron Bay. Here is their real wedding story to inspire your wedding planning.

The lovely Jena and Michael got married in October 2017 at ‘The Fig Tree’ near Byron, after being engaged for 4 years they were waiting to find the perfect spot to tie the knot, one that spoke about who they were.

Nestled in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland and offering stunning views over the ocean, they had originally planned to dine outdoors under the stars with their 70 guests and the historic fig tree that gives the locale its name. However, with the arrival of rain the staff set up the restaurant instead and it looked magical.

Michael was born in New Zealand and has strong cultural ties with his Maori family, during the speeches family members performed the traditional HAKA and their children Lucah and Elijah were part of the ceremony.

With so many people flying in from around New Zealand and Australia to join them in celebrating their wedding wanted a special Australian wedding favour. Jena and Michael chose to use Wedding Honey as their special thank you gift to their guests. The jars were used to gorgeous effect on the place settings, taking pride of place and highlighted with a sprig of wild berries.

Jena said “the honey was a hit and a real talking point after the wedding” With so many beautiful highlights on the day they would “love to go back and do it all again”.

Congratulation to Jena and Michael we are so glad our honey could be part of what sounds like a magical day for your whole family.

Our honey can add that touch of magic to your special day. With many varieties of honey to choose from and custom labels, let Wedding Honey give your guests the sweetest of thank yous.
