NY Times: A Fairy-Tale Wedding, Castle Included


The New York Times reports:

Natalie Anise, 28, and Andrew Fitzsimons, 36, don’t mind traveling half the world for their wedding in September. Their destination, Larnach Castle in New Zealand, is straight out of “Lord of the Rings.” The region’s sheer cliffs overlook the wild Otago Peninsula.

Ms. Anise is originally from California and Mr. Fitzsimons grew up in New Zealand; they live in Brooklyn. She works as a digital marketer, he as an actor and boxing coach.

“I was afraid people wouldn’t want to travel the distance, but everybody loves the idea,” Ms. Anise said. The couple is renting eight bedrooms for her family; Mr. Fitzsimons’s two sisters, who live in New Zealand, will accommodate his family and parts of hers. Total cost: about $70,000, including $3,000 to reserve the castle. Air fare is extra.
