Renowned Kiwi bridal designer Trish Peng made headlines at her first international show at New York Bridal Week on October 6th.

Gideon has said to me that that was the night that he knew I was going to be his future wife! The friendship was very platonic to begin with, but at a fancy-dress party I let my hair ‘slightly down’ and the rest is history. Our first date was his birthday dinner and he tried to convince me that we should get married and keep it a secret from everyone for as long as…
