Hi Julie
We are home after having the amazing and unforgettable time in Rarotonga.
Thank you so much for making our wedding everything we dreamed it would be - and more! All of your organization made sure every detail was thought of and the whole event went so smoothly -we were thrilled with everything. You even coordinated the weather fantastically! Our friends and family had a wonderful time and are all planning their next trip back!
I was pretty nervous about how a group of 40 - lots of whom didn't know each other- would all fit in and get all over several days, but the edgewater resort is such a lovely relaxed and friendly environment they soon all connected and loved their time. Thank you for organizing the night at the spaghetti house and night life tour - we all had such fun and was a great lead up to the wedding day. We will be recommending this to everyone we know wanting to have a very special celebration in a wonderful place.
Please pass on a special thank you to all the friendly wonderful staff at the resort - they were so lovely to be among and so accommodating of our big group. Big groups of people and especially ones with small children can be a bit difficult - but your staff were really caring and helpful. It was lovely to come back on the fri night before we flew home and have them come up to us and chat :) Atutaki was as lovely as you described - but really it is the warmth of the cook island people that make Rarotonga and the cook islands such a special place. We will definitely be back - and back to the Edgewater.
Was lovely to have shared time and worked with you - hope we meet up again:)
NZ is chilly and rainy - a reality check !!
Kindest regards

We are so grateful for everything you did for us. Everything was just such a breeze and so beautiful.

Dear Edgewater Resort & Spa Rarotonga.
On behalf of my family and I, I would like to say thank you for the awesome hospitality and professionalism you displayed to myself my wife and son during our stay with yours. We were in room 2001 and were impressed with the whole operation of the resort. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful if we were unsure of anything. A big shout out to Julz who arranged our wedding she was awesome and we fell right at ease on our wedding day knowing she was there. The cooks and bar staff (Save) and waitresses especially Api and Ana were awesome. Thank you once again for having us and I will be sure to recommend anyone to stay with you in the future and when we come back to Raro we’ll be staying at the Edgewater. All the best and have a Happy Christmas.

Hi Julz,
I really wanted to catch up with you before we left beautiful Rarotonga to tell you how much we appreciated all your hard work and attention to make our wedding day amazing! It was everything we wanted and more! Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!
It was great knowing such a lovely person was taking good care of us.
Our stay at the Edgewater was great and by far the best service we have received at any resort we have stayed at previously in Rarotonga.
The staff were all so friendly and smiling. My kids loved the kids club and wanted to go everyday, they had so much fun. The head security guy/resort manager also gave us a free late checkout which was awesome and much appreciated. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff. I will definitely recommend the Edgewater to family and friends. Ani was awesome and so lovely as was Jo our photographer.

Wish we were back in Raro as all our wedding party wish! NZ is freezing and our plane was delayed to Napier due to snow! It even snowed in Auckland and Wellington! I am sitting in front of our fireplace as we speak!

Good luck with all your future wedding planning, I know you'll make more incredible weddings and dreams come true! Best wishes to you and your family.

Lots of love,
Justine and Deon Savage!

Hi Guys
Back to reality and down to earth with a thud. We arrived home to the coldest weather for 80 odd years. Snow on the ranges in Northland!!!! It’s freezing. Luckily we bought the sun with us so although cold beautiful clear days. It is very hard to get back into things and I can’t wait to come back soon. We loved Raro the first time we visited and we had such a fantastic time this time around!

Thank you both so much for all of your help. It was a wonderful day and made so easy by all of your hard work. I was determined to have a nice casual laid back day with no dramas and that’s what we got. All of our friends and family had a wonderful time and we are already talking about the anniversary party asap! Sunil in the Spa was also fantastic, very helpful and accommodating and good fun so please pass on my thanks to him as well. Can you send me the email address for the resort manager as I would like to drop a quick note of thanks and gold stars for you all 

Thanks once again and we will see you again soon.

Hi Julie & Heather,

John and I would like to say thank you so much for organising the most perfect day for us. You did a fantastic job. You took care of everything. You are a wonderful person.

When we are next in Raro, we will visit you and if you come to NZ, send us an email.

All the best to you and your family.

Hi Julz - how are you?

I can't believe it has been nearly a month since we were over in Raro getting married! The time has gone SO quickly - and the weather has just been a complete change! It has snowed twice in Wellington since we got back which was very weird - and the snow we had yesterday/overnight was intense - it hung around long enough (and there was enough of it) for people to be making snow men and having snow fights down our street!

Anyway, the reason I am emailing is that I thought you might be interested to see the story about our tropical wedding that is up on Stuff.co.nz as their Wedding of The Week. We had to answer some questions and submit some photos and got chosen to appear on the website which was pretty exciting!

Here is the link - http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/weddings/weddings-of-the-week/5431008/Introducing-Rachel-and-Michael

Thanks again for all your help and for making our wedding so wonderful - we will definitely be coming back to visit (soon hopefully) and I have decided that I would love to have your job!!

Dearest Heather, Julz, Junior-masters and The Edgewater resort

Yes its been 2weeks since we've been back in New Zealand and only starting to settle down and back in our jobs with family still visiting from South Africa.

But today I'm making special time to email to you guys before its too late.

Anton and I had one awesome week in Rarotonga, and I miss the warm weather, relaxing life, beautiful blue waters and fish a' chips across the road so much, you have no idea!!

We feel blessed to have met you guys in the 'wedding planning department' - You, Heather made us feel so welcome and at ease with everything, it was more wonderful than we ever expected, and we just love the way you laugh!!.....
We were equally impressed with Jewel's work as we are proud to be her "first" wedding couple she did an amazing job! well done Jewels.

And last but not least - the very awesome Junior", our photographer.... what more can I say, he was just amazing from the start, and with his great humor he made the whole photo shoot so much fun, we are still laughing every time we see him on the video...and all you hear is "hey Bro"...... so cool!

We can never thank you guys enough for making the most important time in our life's so much more special and easy, with no hassles and disappointments - I will recommended a wedding on the Cook Islands and especially at Edgewater in Rarotonga to anyone!

From the bottom of out hearts, thank you very much!

With love,
Anton and Marelize van der Merwe

We had the most magnificent stay. Everybody was wonderful and we really enjoyed the sense of humour and warmth of your staff. Our wedding day was perfect, more than we ever hoped for. The ladies who organised our day, especially Lani, knew what they were doing and it was incredibly stress free. Being pampered at the beauty salon was a real treat and the gentleman that did my hair and makeup was a true professional. The food at our reception was superb and a big thank you goes out to Aneil and his staff. The photos taken by Nior were incredible and everyone was impressed with his creativity, relaxed manner and sense of humour. All of our whanau felt incredibly blessed to have been treated to such a special experience and we will treasure this forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Every day we are ranting to someone how amazing the whole experience was. You and your team made our wedding truly breathtaking and you will always be a part of the hundreds of happy memories we have, not only of our day but also of Rarotonga. I can’t believe on our wedding morning we went snorkelling and then shopped in the afternoon. I wish we could go back and do it all over again. Please can you thank all involved from the catering staff (wedding cake rocked!) make up / hairdresser, flower arrangements, celebrant and the local band which was amazing…thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a magnificent experience.
