Trove Tuesday: Weddings at Christ Church Lavender Bay

In March, I will be getting married at Christ Church Lavender Bay. It is a beautiful little church on the hill overlooking the harbour, and the congregation is so welcoming, we have been worshipping there for about nine months, so when we got engaged it seemed like the obvious choice (especially since my family church meet in a school hall).

Since I was too busy spring cleaning over the weekend to do any Troving, I thought I would do a quick search for weddings at Christ Church - and there are THOUSANDS of results.

Here are a couple of the articles I found that I enjoyed reading... somehow, I don't think my wedding will get the social pages write up like these ones.
