The coolest Kombi on the Coromandel

When we find things that we love, have the "wow" factor or just totally "cool" then we want to share them with you.

Be sure to check out the following websites and give their Facebook pages a big LIKE! We love them and know you will too!

When I'm not chauffeuring Rusty's passengers I am taking care of our guests at our recently built and gorgeous Whangamata Beach House, Boutique Accommodation. And when I am not doing that I am in my workshop painting or making Word Art. Check them both out below!  Cheers LIn x

Whangamata Beach House, Boutique Accommodation

People come to The Beach House to 'Relax & Unwind'.  The crisp white linen, double spa bath & open gas fire are a real treat for guests and provide a luxurious feel without the price tag.  Since opening our doors almost 2 years ago, we have had nearly every weekend booked out!  A definite highlight is the freshly baked bread each morning and guests love the sightseeing cruise around Whangamata in Rusty!

Word Art NZ

Wedding Venues


When I first arrived at L'Orangerie I was transformed to a magical land of romance and charm. I just didn't want to leave! L’Orangerie has been beautifully created to offer a wedding venue that embraces all the warmth, delightful antiquity and whimsical magic of rural France.  

Old Forest School

Another one of my favourite vintage wedding venues. There’s an abundance of special spots for couples to say “I do” at Old Forest School.  You can take your pick from the original and authentic schoolhouse or under the enormous trees. You just have to take a peak at their website, be prepared to be wowed!

Hush Intimate Weddings, Coromandel Town

Ever thought about eloping?! Hush offer packages with the wedding venue and accommodation at Hush Boutique Accommodation for anywhere from an elopement up to thirty five people.  An absolutely stunning, peaceful and rustic-chic venue.


I do, Me too

One of my favourite websites ever! Deb & Nic have the most incredible ideas when it comes to Wedding invitations that capture your unique spirit and personality as a couple. I just love their work!

Photographers & Celebrants

We have worked with many talented photographers and celebrants over the years that there are simply too many to list! Email us your wedding location and we can send you a list of highly recommended photographers or celebrants to choose from.



Meet Rusty's friend!  Photokombi is a mobile photobooth, inside a restored 1971 VW Kombi van and the coolest thing to happen since the Kombi first hit the road in 1950. 


Honey Suckle Rose

Jess is an amazingly talented florist. She specialises in bespoke wedding flowers and they are truly delightfully beautiful.

Daisy Designs

Some prefer to have Rusty looking "oh-natural", whilst others prefer a ribbon on the front. Daisy Designs have an enormous range of satin ribbons. You can choose to go traditional or completely bold!  Simply click on Daisy Designs above and select your colour!


Hush Boutique Accommodation

This is our favourite place to stay in Coromandel Town!   Nestled amongst the lovely NZ bush, with abundant bird life and a bubbling stream. A true delight and highly recommended.
