Kia ora! I’m David.
I’m the other half of Emerald and Ebony: Sustainability Advisor, plant nerd, and Jodie’s husband.
Like Jodie, I’m big on nature and sustainability. I have a Masters degree in Conservation Biology, and have studied Environmental Science, Ecology, and Biodiversity (I told you I was a plant nerd).
I’ll be there every step of the way finding sustainable solutions for your nature-inspired wedding; chances are, I’ll even be there on the day to ensure your wedding is as stress-free as possible.
Protecting New Zealand’s natural environment is my number one passion — closely followed by helping others appreciate and nurture this spectacular world we live in.
A few facts
- For my wedding, I grew and maintained 200 plants to give out as favours to our wedding guests. It was a year-long project but well worth it when we saw the look on our guests’ faces!
- You can often find me up a mountain. I’ve climbed my maunga, Taranaki, five times, and Ruapehu, Tongariro, Ngāuruhoe once each.
- Jodie and I live in a tiny campervan affectionately known as Nigel. And we love every second of it!
