Peppers Clearwater Resort helps New Zealand brides and grooms
A luxury Christchurch resort left unscathed by the Canterbury earthquakes has found a special way to give back to their community.
Peppers Clearwater Resort, one of Canterbury’s premium resorts, is helping displaced brides find a new wedding location for their special day and giving away all venue hire proceeds to the Red Cross Earthquake appeal.
NZ Regional General Manager of Peppers Resorts and Hotels, Ken Harris, feels this is a way for Clearwater to make a contribution to their community.
“We’ve been looking for a unique way to give back to Cantabrians,” says Ken. “While they’re truly wonderful celebrations, weddings can also be stressful to organise. We hope that this can help relieve one of the stresses brides and grooms in Canterbury may be facing at the moment.”
Newlyweds Cassie Low and Matthew Aked recently moved their wedding to Peppers Clearwater Resort after their original venue was damaged by the earthquake.
“Peppers Clearwater Resort is such a stunning location,” says Cassie “And, the team have been fantastic in helping us plan our big day at very short notice.”
Peppers Clearwater Resort is reducing their venue hire to $1000 (usually $3500) for every new wedding taking place prior to June 14th 2011, and is donating the venue hire proceeds to the Earthquake appeal.
“It’s heartbreaking to hear stories of weddings not being able to go ahead,” says Ken. “We want Cantabrains to know that the Clearwater team will do whatever we can to make their special day one to remember.”
Set in one of the South Island’s most picturesque locations, against the crystal blue waters of Lake Kaikainui, Peppers Clearwater Resort offers couples a unique wedding venue.
This stylish resort boasts elegant accommodation, fine dining and top facilities in a breathtaking environment along with an enthusiastic team that will ensure that the wedding day is truly memorable.
