Terri Everett is a wedding planner from Tasman, New Zealand what began as dream to put the Nelson, Tasman & Golden Bay region on the map, has become a reality and testimony to the power of collaboration of small business working together to achieve a common goal, in what is tough economic times for many tourism operators & small business in general.
Some of the most stunning scenery in New Zealand is in the Nelson, Tasman, Golden Bay Area where three of New Zealand’s most stunning national park are located. The Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes & Kahurangi National Parks .
As the top of the south island is slightly off the traveler’s beaten track. It has always been a challenge to encourage traveled to divert to Nelson. The Cook Straight Crossing from North Island to Picton Ferry on to Christchurch and Queenstown does not take the traveler through this gem in the heart of New Zealand. Many international travelers miss the area completely, those that do make fall it love with the place, hence why Tasman region is the fasting growing area for migrants from the UK and many from the USA chosing to make NZ their home & most kiwi’s will tell you the area rates as one of the most stunning places in the world, a best kept secret, but not for long if a solid working group of diverse small businesses have their way.
“Some 50+ businesses in the Nelson, Tasman & Golden Bay area are working on the Dream Maker Wedding Competition aiming to put the area on the map in a unique “Think Global, Act Local” way,” says Dream maker organiser Terri Everett
The “Dream Maker Wedding Contest” has attracted 150+ entries via the MOREFM website in Nelson, from which 6 couples will be chosen to carry out a number of fun and public challenges around the area during the month of June. The winner will have a DREAM wedding worth 30,000 + in prizes. From a honeymoon night at the prestigious elite $3,000 per night Split Apple Hideaway, a stunning bridal gown, flowers, every imaginable gift to their own custom written song “Dream Maker” written and performed by New Zealand Female Country Artist of the Year Aly Cook who lives in Tasman.
Their entire wedding will be filmed and produced as the second in a series of videos to market the Nelson, Tasman & Golden Bay region as an international wedding destination.
