With so much happening here and around the world right now, it was a joy to share some uplifting news yesterday when we drew the winner of Easy Weddings’ sixth competition, and gave away another incredible prize. With just under 4,000 tickets in our Grand Prize Draw, it was Alison of Penrith, NSW whose name we drew, and she and partner Jonathan now have $5,000 to spend with our new honeymoon and travel platform Easy Weddings Travel.
I ran out to Jonathan while I was still on the phone and started making gestures at him trying to get his phone and open Facebook so he could see the video and know what was going on.Alison, bride
This couple is already super organised, having booked many suppliers for their May 2021 nuptials, from a photographer, stylist+florist and hair and makeup artist, to their ceremony and reception venues and Maddison’s wedding gown. Alison and Jonathan’s wedding isn’t until May 2021, which will hopefully mean that events and travel have opened up by then. This gives them plenty of time to plan what to spend their $5,000 on! The Dawes Point Room also benefits from adjustable bi-fold walls that can be drawn across to lower the capacity, used to provide breakout areas, or opened to reveal a vibrant dancefloor later in the evening. The possibilities are endless!
Perched on the pontoon overlooking the immaculate Walsh Bay, the Dawes Point Room is spacious and versatile with direct access onto the outdoor decking through glass doors. Bathed in natural light and decorated with understated paisley carpets, the large open-plan room can be designed in any layout that suits your style. Alison told us they’re keen to explore New Zealand on their honeymoon. They really want to go to Queenstown and explore the area. Onsen Spa and Nevis Swing are on our to-do list as well as a day trip to Aoraki. We’re after a balance between adventure and relaxing.
