    Ryan mate you are a farmer/hunter/fisherman and you know lots of Farmers Hunters and Fishermen.

    Hire a caterer and supply them with whole animals to do whatever you want with.

    For instance for our wedding we supplied a whole wild sheep and a whole wild pig to a portabale spit roast/smoker guy who turned up at the venue with the smoked/roasted animals ready to carve from the trailer they were cooking in (must get lots of 111 calls driving down the road with his trailer smoking)
    A buttload of halfshell greenlip mussels and Salmon threw the wifes work for bugger all cooked at reception by her Netball mates, Dad bought a 50l keg the FIL bought a heap of crates seeing as it was national crate day and we brought a bloody shitload of wine(way too much couldnt get rid of the shit)

    All in we were around 15k, it could be done for 5 and nobody would notice the difference.

    Also dont forget the Moari (forgive me I forget the proper term) "chit" for way over quota allowances for special occasions like weddings funerals 40ths etc is not just for Moari any Kiwi is entitled you just need to go talk to your local Iwi.

    seriously though, make sure you have a phone/camera check at the door. otherwise you will have a million tossers updating their facehead bullshit instead of having a good time.

    Customary permit?

    Did ours recently for a shade under 15, on Raro, including our flights and accom and all that. (We were there for 3 weeks, dived, played etc.) Was great fun, managed to keep it real low stress. Would highly recommend it.

    We did the view etc, didn't look at it once too busy talking to people.

    Got fancy photo's, haven't looked at them since either - apart from one on the wall!

    Put the money into the people coming I reckon, she'll remember that more in future than a view!

    Cousin did that. Venison, wild pig, crayfish, .... fantastic spread.

    Had a couple of Brothers-In-Law donate whole salmon and whitebait for ours.

    For my sister's wedding we booked an amazing venue Alexandra Park near Auckland. Their staff helped us a lot with organizations, cathering service and decorations. I really liked that place! If I decide to marry one day my wedding will be there.

    @Ryan_Songhurst when my wife and I tired the knot we had a no kids wedding!
    Caused a bit of shit but in the end those that had kids said it was great to let there hair down and not have to run around after snotty nosed. Why pay for someone's who's not going to appreciate it.
    We also invited those who are friends not who we want to be friends with.
    That was a hard one as there where quite a few relations that got left out. Remember it's your guys day. If your funding the whole thing, as we did then you have more say in the above. Enjoy it ah we had a blast
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along

    Yep exactly what we did, there was upset and angst but it was our day and if they weren't going to come because of kids that was fine, half sisters wanted boyfriends, we said no as we hadn't even met them. As has been said, it's your day, do it your way, but be realistic on the cost, it need not be hellishly expensive to remember a great day... Congrats to you both.
