Sam and Harriet Cane celebrated their marriage in Wānaka in December, despite high winds and other complications. The couple exchanged vows in Rippon Hall overlooking a somewhat wild Lake Wānaka during less than ideal weather. If the storm wasn’t enough to deter the pair, a transit issue led to half of the beer for the evening being misplaced. Fortunately, DB Breweries were able to ‘save the day’ by supplying extra alcohol and the weather cleared just before the ceremony.
Despite that, the couple said that they thoroughly enjoyed the event, with kindergarten teacher Harriet Cane telling Woman’s Day, “it's already been an amazing day, today is all about us: our marriage, our relationship.”
All Blacks star Sam Cane agreed, “marriage won't change a lot for us, really, but we wanted to celebrate our love and commitment to each other.”
The pair met in a Hamilton pub four years ago and have since shared many great adventures overseas together, especially with the All Blacks’ tours around the world. They look forward to more experiences together in the future and enjoyed celebrating their love in Wānaka with 100 of their whānau.
