Congratulations bride, Margaret! She tied the knot at her stunning wedding on the Cook Islands in the middle of the South Pacific! It was truly a dream trip as the blue sea is what everyone’s dreams are made of. See the absolutely stunning scenery, and hear a movie like story from the groom in this Cook Islands wedding video!
This intimate wedding video was shot by the bride and groom’s guests. They had a fabulous time capturing all of the special moments from the trip with their own cameras along with the WeddingMix app!
We wanted to capture our non-traditional three week wedding celebration from the eyes of our family and friends. We knew we were going to be in some of the most beautiful places in the world with the most amazing people and we wanted to have a memento.”- Meg

Advice from the bride!
1. What part of your wedding planning are you most proud of?
We were so happy to have a amazing experience that was so much more than one day.
2. Where did you get married?
We got married just the two of us in the Cook Islands. Half of Sam’s family lives in Australia and my family and the rest of Sam’s family live in the US. We knew it would be very difficult to get everyone in the same place.
We decided we wanted to say our vows privately on a beautiful beach and then travel to celebrate with all the people we love. We had a small reception in the Gold Coast of Australia with family and wonderful friends who traveled from across Australia and from the US.
We will be finishing everything off with a party with our US family and friends in February.
3. Why was using WeddingMix appealing for your big day?
We wanted to capture our non-traditional three week wedding celebration from the eyes of our family and friends. We knew we were going to be in some of the most beautiful places in the world with the most amazing people and we wanted to have a memento.
4. What were the most important moments that WeddingMix was able to capture on your special day?
The most important moments we were able to capture was the time we got to spend with family and friends. Especially our family in Australia who we don’t get to see very often.
5. What is your top wedding budget tip(s)?
The majority of the money we spent was on travel and that is what was important to us. We paid off flights and accommodations as we booked them. Having a good travel credit card worked out really well for us.
