Adria Buckton of Trigger Marketing and Publicity comments, "Second-Hand Wedding has been endorsed by media personalities, church leaders, and your neighbor next door. It seems every corner of the community is falling for this film! The overall enthusiasm and passion for this kiwi tale has been astounding - the film is refreshing and deserves this success"
