Kiwi Wedding

13 July 2009

Having a New Zealand themed wedding can be loads of fun and there is so much choice in great food, wine and favour ideas.

New Zealand is known for it's amazing landscapes. Mountainous peaks, white rivers and rolling vineyards. Consider your setting and utilise every part of it, even if the weather's rubbish. Often photographers prefer to work with inclement weather to maximise the effect of the images.

Have your catering encompass all things ‘Kiwi’ by serving New Zealand roast lamb with chargrilled kumara and of course there are endless wines to chose from that will compliment any meal. My personal favourite is Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc. When your guests arrive why not offer a kiwi and lime cocktail garnished with kiwi fruit and for a traditional end to your meal, serve posh mini pavlovas followed by Anzac bikkies with coffee.

For favours you can't go past a traditional bone carving or something that includes Paua shell. If you're a rugby fan, give the men little All Blacks keyrings.

Think of the things you took for granted during your childhood such as Manuka honey and lamingtons at Grandma's. My husband's fondest memories are of catching trout on Lake Taupo and the reminiscent smell of manuka chips when smoking the fish. All of these sentimental memories are wonderful to incorporate into your day.
