Tash and Mel – ZM’s Fabulous Gay Wedding

Tash and Mel Wedding Rings

In support of the historic passing of gay marriage in New Zealand, radio station ZM announced in July 2013 that they would run a competition to find a same-sex couple to marry on the first day the law would be enacted. When we heard about this competition, we knew we had to get involved!

After several weeks of campaigning and voting, Tash and Mel were the competition winners. From dresses, to venues, to horse-drawn carriages, every aspect of these lovely ladies’ wedding was provided by supportive and gay-positive companies. Of course, we at K. Amani Fine Jeweller supplied the rings.

When Tash and Mel found out they would receive custom designed wedding bands up to a value of $5,000, they were ecstatic! Tash always had a very specific idea in mind for her wedding band, and we met at our store in the Queen’s Arcade to work out the details. It’s amazing just how much fun you can have when working with people who are just so happy to get married!
