Our Story


Owner Kim Houston started Take A Vow Weddings & Events out of a passion for creating dreams.

I have a gorgeous family of seven. My amazingly supportive husband Pete, three beautiful daughter’s Briar (22), Jessie (19) Bella (14), Bailey (Golden Retriever) and Cooper (Newfoundland).


I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and see some amazing countries, architecture, design and experience the cuisine and culture.  Creating people’s dreams are my passion and having worked in the travel industry for 26 years, (part of which was organising destination weddings) made me realise that this is my true calling. 


If you speak to our friends and family,  they will tell you that our house is indeed ‘party’ central.  We entertain often and love to have special themed parties and celebrations with plenty of  personal touches.   


Whether it’s vintage, boho, classic, modern, glam, elegant or a theme of your choosing, my team and I are here to help.  We take on the responsibility of planning, styling and designing your special day.  We want our couples to enjoy being engaged and not have the added stress and worry that sometimes weddings can bring.  The details of your wedding day should work together to tell your story and infuse both of your personalities into the day with unforgettable moments, and touches that your guests will talk about for years to come.


Our wedding over 17 years ago is still being talked about. (Partly due to the fact it was a major cyclone on the day and we were getting married on an island off Auckland)… But you know what? Although everything didn’t go according to plan – it was hands down the best day of my life!  It’s not about the weather – its about marrying the one you will spend the rest of your life with, and sharing your special day with the people you love.


We also organise everything from engagement parties, baby showers, birthday and anniversary parties, as well as vow renewal’s and destination weddings.  Let us take care of the designing and styling of your celebration and you can sit back and relax.   Whilst we are based in Auckland, we’re more than happy to travel throughout New Zealand and overseas.  Having contacts in the travel industry is a huge bonus!


It’s an incredible privilege to be a part of such an important day and we thoroughly enjoy and love everything about what we do at Take A Vow.


The day you’ve been dreaming of…
