A little About Me
My name is Kirsten, pictured below at Hitch’d 2018 with my 10 year old daughter Mia. I have been slowly developing and growing Vintage and Style since 2015. With previous careers in both the Travel and Beauty Industry both owing and managing salons based in the Auckland International Airport Terminal and the surrounding Airport business hub from 2000 - 2010. You may have even stopped in and had your nails done by me on your way overseas!!!
My love of lighting began when we renovated our first home and I was able to utilise my creative side, alongside my other love for vintage finds. I made my first Agee Jar Pendants for above our kitchen bench and from there it all began! I went from making them for myself to selling them in a friends retail store (and still do!) Green with Envy in Matakana www.greenwithenvy.co.nz!
From there I was approached to make some Jar Pendants for the set of Cadbury Dream Factory in 2015. That’s when I saw a gap for really nice quality lighting available to the wedding and events industry, and having an Electrician in the house it just made sense! My husband John is an Electrician by trade and has worked in the industry for over 25 years so all the electrical work is carried out by him.
My love of lighting has grown from not just vintage finds but to pretty much anything that catches my eye and that I think will take an event to the next level. Whether its old or new I now have something to suit all occasions and budgets; weddings, events, corporate events, engagements, birthday celebrations and pretty much anywhere that needs a little bit of extra sparkle!
I love to get creative and design and custom make as much as I can of my lighting. I feel strongly about keeping it as Kiwi made as possible! Good Lighting cannot be underestimated and can set the mood and ambience of an event if done well. A venue will often determine what lighting you can and can’t have, please feel free to get in touch to discuss your options!!
I can’t wait to lighten up your day!
