Wairarapa News - - WHAT’S ON -

Win­ter has gone, spring has sprung and Christ­mas is just around the cor­ner!

Lans­downe House cel­e­brated the end of win­ter with a grand Sun­day lunch last week, now it wel­comes in spring with blos­som ev­ery­where and the vi­brant colours of daf­fodils and spring flow­ers.

Who can be­lieve, how­ever, that Christ­mas is on the hori­zon and plans are al­ready afoot to book Christ­mas events!

And for the 12th year run­ning, Lans­downe House is open­ing again for its fa­mous Christ­mas Day lunch! Al­ready sev­eral book­ings have been taken so don’t de­lay your book­ing and risk dis­ap­point­ment.

The win­ter months have been busy with sev­eral 60th, 70th 80th and 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions as well as a fam­ily re­union and a small con­fer­ence.

Richard and Ka­dia have en­joyed ev­ery event and have loved the pos­i­tive feed­back from ev­ery­one on their Face­book. They are also touched by the many ‘thank you’ cards they have re­ceived.

Whilst ev­ery­one al­ways praises Richard and Ka­dia for their food, es­pe­cially their fa­mous rasp­berry pavlova tow­ers, their ice creams and sauces and their hot pud­dings – choco­late pud­ding be­ing the favourite this sea­son – they also com­mend their won­der­ful team – Greg, Lisa, Nicky, San­dra, Marama, Chris­tine and Be´ne´dicte.

‘‘We are blessed to have them,’’ says Ka­dia.

Wed­dings are such a spe­cial time in ev­ery­one’s lives. They are one of the favourite events at Lans­downe House and their last wed­ding of the sum­mer sea­son was Natalie Ban­nis­ter and Justin Blake­lyPrice’s.

Their spe­cial day epit­o­mised what Richard and Ka­dia hope to achieve with ev­ery wed­ding they host.

Natalie writes: ‘‘Thank you so much Ka­dia and all the staff at Lans­downe House. We had the best week­end ever. The plan­ning lead­ing up to the wed­ding went so smoothly, Ka­dia was so help­ful and full of great sug­ges­tions and ideas.

‘‘The venue was set up so beau­ti­fully and looked even bet­ter than we could have imag­ined. And then there was the food – what a spectacular feast! Ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing tasted amaz­ing and we had so many com­ments how great the food was and how much there was – ev­ery­one was so full! We loved that they spe­cially got in Coronas and sweet sparkling wine for us to en­joy. Ev­ery­thing went so smoothly and was just per­fect for us and that was in huge part thanks to Ka­dia and her team . . . you re­ally helped make spe­cial mem­o­ries that will last a life­time.’’

Ka­dia says: ‘‘Natalie and Justin are a su­per cou­ple and we wish them ev­ery hap­pi­ness for their fu­ture. We were de­lighted to see that Natalie came run­ner up in the Bride of the Year con­test.’’

‘‘Natalie’s com­ments re­ally do re­flect what we aim to achieve with ev­ery wed­ding we host. This time last year we or­gan­ised a wed­ding for 60 peo­ple in just three weeks which was equally suc­cess­ful so whether your time-frame is long or short, we are here to help. Just give us a call.’’
