Facebook us on EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN Callie and Nic Christie got married on April Fools’ Day. The couple, in their 40s, had just one month to plan the wedding but it turned out to be “such a wonderful day,” Mrs Christie said. “It was a little bit of a rush, but we got it organised with help from family and friends. We didn’t get too tied up in the details, I just let the dressmaker do her thing, and same with the florist and the cake maker. They know what they’re doing.” The couple are part of a rise in weddings and civil unions in Canterbury. Latest data from Statistics NZ shows that while marriages and civil unions went down in New Zealand last year, Cantabrians bucked the trend with a rise in couples tying the knot. New Zealand residents registered 19,947 marriages and civil unions last year, down slightly from 20,175 from 2014, but more than the 19,425 registered in 2013. Canterbury residents celebrated 2655 marriages and civil unions last year, up from 2589 in 2014. The statistics are based on where couples live – not where they were married. Celebrant Julie Lassen, who married Callie, 42, and Nic, 43, said she had “definitely” noticed a rise in bookings. “There’s been a steady increase over the past few years and it has definitely been a busy season. We’ve got a lot of second-time-around marriages as well.” Mr Christie had previously been married, and has two children, Bella, 14, and Jackson, 12. Mr and Mrs Christie met just over four years ago, set up on a blind date. A month later they’d BIG DAY: Callie and Nic on their wedding day with children Bella, 14 and Jackson, 12). ​ moved in together, and a year later they booked the wedding venue – Cossars Wineshed at Tai Tapu – Mrs Christie said. “We just got serious really quickly. We booked the venue three years ago, because I wanted to do my girl thing and lose a bit of weight first. We actually forgot we’d booked it though, until a month before,” [laughing]. When she realised the date was set, they went into fullwedding mode and pulled off the big day just a month later. “We honestly just had the best day,” she said.
