Wedding Bands Made with Love – Complete Wedding
August 18, 2010
Rebecca and Rob were at their cousin’s wedding in Fiji when he proposed. “Rob and the boys had gone out on a deep-sea fishing trip the day before and that was when he asked for and received my dad’s blessing. Rob suggested a kayak trip the following day, out to a deserted sandbar he’d found. He organised a picnic for us and so off we went. It was so quiet and peaceful out there. He’d reached the outer edge of the sand bank that was sitting in about an inch of water, when out of the blue, Rob got down on one knee and with an opened ring box in his hand, and asked me to marry him.”
Rebecca saw an ad for Larsen Jewellery that featured a ring she fell in love with. “We went to meet and get quotes from other jewellers but none of them instilled the confidence or listened to what I wanted.”
“We heard about the Wedding Ring Experience, where Larsen’s steps you through actually making each other’s wedding rings from concept to shiny completion. Making each other’s wedding bands was a very personal and romantic opportunity and we just couldn’t pass it up. The whole process was a lot of fun. After a concentrated but very satisfying few hours, we’d transformed two rough pieces of gold into two beautiful rings.
“Seeing the rings take shape and ultimately transform from their raw state of two blocks of gold to the beautiful jewellery that we now wear, was an unbelievable experience. We even incorporated the fact we had made each other’s wedding rings into our wedding vows and most people that we tell about the experience think it is terribly romantic!”
