Stacey’s Hotspots

New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -

Stacey Weaver, founder and cre­ator of Christchurch-based sta­tionery and gift shop Just South West ( just­south­west. com) tells us her top picks from her home­town Christchurch and be­yond. Q Where’s your go-to spot in Christchurch for a nice bite to eat? A I love Boo Radley’s on Vic­to­ria Street for a nice bite, cock­tails and live mu­sic. Q And for some­thing a lit­tle fancier? A With so many new bars and restau­rants open­ing in the city, this is a hard one. I would have to say Botanic on the newly de­vel­oped Ter­races over­look­ing the Avon River. Q What are some of your favourite places to visit in the South Is­land? A I’d rec­om­mend book­ing an Airbnb in a small town in the mid­dle of nowhere. There are some beau­ti­ful spots to re­ally get away from it all. Some faves are Wash­pen Falls and sec­ond-hand store Over­flow in May­field, for lovers of a trea­sure hunt! Q Where was your favourite wed­ding in the South Is­land held? A It would have to have been when I got to watch the two best peo­ple I know marry each other on the water­front in Ngakuta Bay. Q What do you love about liv­ing in the Can­ter­bury re­gion?

A I love be­ing able to eas­ily es­cape to beau­ti­ful spots in na­ture – we are not short of those here. Also, be­ing part of the evo­lu­tion of Christchurch city post- earth­quake is a re­ally won­der­ful thing.
