Celebration Date & Location:
Upper Moutere, Tasman, Nelson, New Zealand
Tell us how you got engaged:
A very sensible conversation – at a wake! Nic and I talked about it and decided to get engaged. A month later, Nic rented a house in golden bay, NZ, and proposed.
It was so important for our guests to have fun. We have had a lot of recent tragedy in our families, and we wanted laughter to be a focus of the day. We also wanted to have a rustic themed wedding, with bits of DIY, and lots of interactive things to do, like a photobooth, chess, and music. We planned as much as we could, but the wedding took on a life of it’s own – and it was FANTASTIC!
Did you add any fun twists on tradition:
We had an engagement ring mini ceremony (a suggestion of our celebrant), I sang to Nic as a surprise before cutting the cake, I had a bridesmaid AND a bridesman, we had loads of friends get up and sing songs, and our dance with our parents was a twist contest!
What was the inspiration for your Glövite and Glösite design? If you made them yourself, tell us how you did it.
It was mainly to do with our colours…rustic looking and interactive too. Guests found it really handy to have all the info about the venue right in front of them.
For our invites, we used a wallpaper sample off a dulux website!

Any good planning tips and tricks for the couples who are just starting to plan?
Glosite is FUN and much more cost-effective than paper invitations. It’s easier to chase people up for RSVP’s.
