Free wed­ding at na­ture re­serve

Kapiti News - - News -

A lucky cou­ple will be mar­ried for free in Ka¯ piti this month.

Per­fect Lit­tle Wed­dings, owned by Frances Thomp­son and Karolyn McNi­col, along with The Hits and Waikanae’s Nga Manu Na­ture Re­serve have pulled to­gether an en­tire give­away wed­ding for one cou­ple to be held at the re­serve on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 26.

The free wed­ding idea started when one of Per­fect Lit­tle Wed­dings cel­e­brants Karen Simp­son-War­ren do­nated her time for styled pho­to­graphic shoot.

“We had our cel­e­brant so we thought why don’t we ac­tu­ally marry a cou­ple,” Karolyn said.

“We then had to find sup­pli­ers will­ing to give their time or ser­vices free of charge.

“Some­thing that drove us was the thought how nice would it be to marry a de­serv­ing cou­ple who have had a tough year, or can’t af­ford to get mar­ried be­cause they pri­ori­tised rais­ing a fam­ily over spend­ing the money on a wed­ding.

“We are lucky to have a wed­ding cake from Cake It For­ward, who do­nate cakes to kids with par­ents in prison among other great causes.

“Rau­mati Beach florist Ca­role Hirst is sup­ply­ing the flow­ers for the cou­ple and we are very lucky to have the amaz­ing pho­to­graphic tal­ents of Kirsten Walsh to cap­ture their spe­cial day.

“Blue Car­rot Cater­ing are sup­ply­ing the food and Pal­liser Es­tate have do­nated bub­bly for the cel­e­bra­tions.

“We even have wed­ding bands from Pas­coes, suit hire from Rem­brandt and a wed­ding gown from Brides on Thorn­don.

“We are so lucky these busi­nesses are all so in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous.” Frances said.

“It’s go­ing to be an in­cred­i­ble day for the win­ning cou­ple.

“It would be nice to marry a cou­ple from Ka¯ piti al­though the com­pe­ti­tion will be open to ev­ery­one in the Welling­ton re­gion.

“Tune in to The Hits ra­dio sta­tion if you or some­one you know would like to get mar­ried for free.
