And so, the story goes...

Creative director Aleisha McNiece grew up in rural Hawkes Bay and spent the month of September manning a road-side stall selling daffodils. After receiving a honours degree in design she set off overseas with a Dunedin boy she met whilst living in Wellington.  Melbourne soon became home, and it was here she landed head first in the world of events and found her true passion in the wedding industry. After developing her personal project in the form of her blog The Lucy Chase Project, she landed her dream job as a wedding planner and stylist for Australia's leading event company Georgeous. Here she worked with Australia’s elite and was exposed to an incredible industry and network of people.

In the early summer of 2015, The Lucy Chase Project did a little growing up and became Lucy Chase… and Aleisha (and that very same boy…) decided to move back to NZ and set up camp in Hawkes Bay.

And, the adventure begins…

Lucy Chase offers a thoughtfully considered and curated approach to design and hire for weddings and gatherings.  Designed with the new generation in mind, Lucy Chase have developed their offerings for the NZ market and whilst based in Hawkes Bay based can travel within the North Island. They love a good skype date and have experience working with clients based overseas and afar.

The dream: To offer a premium, inspirational and refined approach to event design whilst remaining personal, thoughtful and above all else accessible. To seek out and share. To tread lightly on the earth through sustainable practises and responsibility.
