April and Oliver had their wedding in the UK, and we are convinced it was the one wedding to rule them all. While in New Zealand enjoying their honeymoon, April and Oliver had a fun filled day at Hobbiton enjoying what is on offer and made a very special visit to the Jens Hansen workshop here in Nelson.
Daniel and Jenny became engaged at the very top of the red crater here near Mt Rongariro, New Zealand. Being engaged here in New Zealand had a part to play in keeping the rings of a more sentimental value to them, so having them made by the Jens Hansen workshop, who made the one ring to rule them all, for The Lord of the Rings seemed a perfect fit.
It is traditional for brides to receive two rings, the first is an engagement ring which symbolises a promise of marriage. A wedding ring or commonly referred to as a wedding band is then given during the wedding ceremony, and this band is traditionally known to solidify and strengthen that promise.
The size of your hands and fingers will change over your life time and the life of your wedding rings. Tungsten and titanium rings are almost impossible respectively to work with after they have been machined in the factory. The chance of finding anyone near you who can work with them is negligible.
Thinking of visiting Nelson or interested in what other's say about us. Here's a article that was published recently in Australia in the very cool digital publication Concrete Playground encouraging Australians to pop over the ditch to New Zealand for 72 hours.
Lovely article that featured Nelson in the May 2016 edition of Verve, India Simone the writer was here last September after attending the WOW show in Wellington. Some fantastic writing and imagery including a visit to the Jens Hansen Studio
“There wasn’t a lot of money for jewellery in those early years of our marriage,” Tony remembers. “We started our family – Joel, who is now 25, Jontee is 22, and Oscar is 15 – and we were mortgaged to the hilt. One year, I bought her a bottle of perfume for her birthday. She insisted I take it back and told me the money would be much better spent on nappies.”
