Before we get into that, let’s start with a question:
What has my friend Liz, one of our guestbooks and Julia May got in common?
Answer: They’ve all been to Wanaka, that’s what. Don’t worry, this was not the competition! It was just my way of introducing my favourite subject of the moment into the conversation! Wanaka. More importantly, a particular place in this town only 50 minutes drive from Queenstown, Peak Functions.
I recently shipped one of our guestbooks off to this drop dead gorgeous venue, I know this to be true thanks to the stunning photography on Peak Functions website (more about them in a moment). I wished so much to be making a gloved hand delivery myself to this town nestled on the southern shores of Lake Wanaka so hugely different to my hometown of Manchester! One day I will! I was relaxed just looking at the photographs, imagine actually living and working there! Debbie and Mandy from Peak functions do and are very excited to be part of such a young but outstanding venue which is Wanaka’s premier, brand new conference and function centre.
Put a pause on looking through those bridal magazines for one moment….
No doubt you have considered many venues to feast your eyes on as a backdrop for your wedding. Now consider this, Peak Functions is centrally located, and unrivalled in both style and functionality – so their website shows me and can easily show you too. And now they can offer something extra to couples who are thinking about using their magnificent venue – *insert drum roll* …..A free voucher for one of our guestbooks when they sign on the dotted line (the contract to hire their facilities not the marriage certificate!).
At a recent expo based at Peak Functions, in which local wedding suppliers were invited to showcase their range of wedding products and services, we were so fortunate to have one of our guestbooks on display. Between you and me and everyone reading this blog post, I was somewhat anxious, crossing everything that could be crossed hoping NZ post would get it there in time due to a short working week. I needn’t have worried, Auckland to Wanaka overnight - NZ post you rock! The beautifully framed Pohutukawa fingerprint guestbook was widely admired and set up so couples could easily envisage what it might look like at their own wedding. Julia May was the lucky winner at this event. And lucky to be living in such a stunning part of the world too.
We can solve your problem if you can’t make it to Wanaka anytime soon to visit Peak Functions…
As they will be coming to Auckland this weekend. Once again My Guestbook will be teaming up with them to give away a free guestbook when you visit them at The Lake Wanaka stand at the Bride and Groom show, at Ellerslie Racecourse.
As winter has suddenly hit Auckland with a fierceness none of us were prepared for, I wonder perhaps if I open all the windows, put on my gloves, scarf and beanie, I can imagine what it would be like to visit Wanaka. I’m sure my 5 year old would love to make a game of it! Or maybe I’ll just light the fire and get back onto Peak Functions website!
