Being the bride and groom at a wedding can be a very enjoyable but sometimes overwhelming experience. You may not get to spend as much time with everyone, or say all the things you hoped to. Whether your guests were able to contribute to your special day financially or just came to help celebrate, either of which is fine, a simple thank you and memento is nice to receive.

Chris and I started dating while I was still in school, he was that older guy who had finished and was working full time. We had been very close friends for at least a year before we officially became a couple. With the simple but scary question of "So..... do you want to be my girlfriend?"
Here we are 10 years down the track, newly married. We have been living together since 2008 and he is the best friend, favourite flat mate and life partner I could ask for.

We started our anniversary weekend with a day hike at Patuna Chasm (see here for my blog post about it).
which meant we were due for a drink and some good food.
After a quick change and freshen up we drove back to Martinborough Memorial Square and took our "official" anniversary photo. I am hoping to make this a tradition and take a photo every anniversary with our previous anniversary photo in the frame.

This weekend we took an afternoon to explore a different part of the country we call home. We decided to do a day trip away, and drove from Wellington to Martinborough. Not to far out of Martinborough is Patuna Farm Adventures, (Visit their website here) which harbours an absolutely awe inspiring treasure, the Patuna Chasm.
Not your typical first year wedding anniversary event, but then we don't consider ourselves as your "typical" couple. It turned out the be a very worthwhile and memorable experience.
