I'm Lauryn.

Wife, mother, wine drinker and all things wedding lover.

My husband Ian and I are California born with New Zealand roots.

In 2018 we made the decision to leave our corporate jobs and the hustle and bustle of Auckland, and moved to our happy place in the Coromandel. 


I have always loved love. It took me a while to figure out how to harness my passion into something tangible, but when I began to plan my own wedding, it all fell into place. I launched The Romance Club (formerly Ferns & Things) in 2019 and became my first, very satisfied client.

With a background in hospitality, I have been working in weddings and events in various roles for 10+ years. Now The Romance Club has a small, skilled team ready to bring your dream day to life.

Your wedding is the best party you will ever throw and speaking from experience, you'll want someone you get along with to take charge of your day. You don’t want to be worrying about your table settings or if your cake has been delivered.


As your planner, I will ensure that the day of your dreams becomes a reality. My goal is to coordinate the event so smoothly, that you feel like a very important guest, rather than a host.


Let me take the stress out wedding planning so you get to enjoy all the good bits.

Lauryn xx
