“My husband and I were really pleased working with New Zealand Dream Weddings. Donna took out all the hard work involved in an international destination wedding. All we had to do basically was show up and enjoy the day! The pictures turned out wonderful. We have had so many positive comments about them! We definitely recommend New Zealand Dream Weddings.”
