How did you meet?
Studying music at Excel School of Performing Arts in Auckland. We both got selected to be part of a team touring NZ for 20 weeks and Germany for 8 weeks performing at schools and churches and that’s how it all started.
Tell us the one quality you love most about each other…
Her – Ngarita’s heart for family is amazing! I love when she tells me stories about her family (3 year old nephew in particular) because you can just see and hear the love she has for them! Ngarita is going to be an amazing mum haha
Him – I absolutely love how Jaden inspires and encourages me to never give up.
Tell us about the proposal…
We went for a holiday to Blenheim (Jaden’s home town) for his Dads birthday but it was that exact same week 2 years ago that we were in Blenheim on tour with Excel and that was the week it all kind of started between us so it was a special week! We spent the day site seeing then had dinner with Jaden’s parents and when we came home there were candles and rose petals going from the front door to the French doors leading to the backyard. In the backyard there were fairy lights, candles, wine, a brazier, letters written from special people, it was like a movie! Jaden popped the question then we sat by the fire, with a wine and some chocolate, under the stars.
