There is a distinct european flavour with a honeymoon theme with guests at the lodge today. Honeymooners from Milan , Italy and two couples from France, one of whom,will be married somewhere here in Waihi Beach tomorrow - its all go.
The honeymooners from Milan were married last year but waited till our summer - to get the best weather. They ventured up the Coromandel Peninsular checking out the beautiful beaches and natural scenery.
The next day they explored the Karangahake Gorge checking out the gold mining history of the past.
Wedding day dawned a little cloudy - great for photos though. Off to the north end of Waihi Beach for the ceremony.This was a dream come true for the bride - she's had a liking for New Zealand - goes to matches in France cheering for the All Blacks. She had always wanted to come and see our country -this was her chance especially since her husband was really keen as well . They are off to Hobbiton for their official photo session.
