I saw this post from last year on Koru Ceremony’s Facebook page and thought it would be helpful to share… My husband and I were recently in San Francisco and saw these fern korus at the deYoung Museum. A koru is a new fern frond as it begins to unfurl. The word “koru” (pronounced kor-roo) is the […]
Back in September I went to an amazing wedding conference called Camp Wed at Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, WI. By far, this was the best conference I have ever been to having to do with the wedding industry. One of the perks of going to Camp Wed was the fabulous Lexia Frank Photography took a headshot of each of us. Thanks […]

Not only did I learn so much during the amazing workshops that were presented, but it was also relaxing, fun, and I was inspired by being around other wedding professionals. […]

KORU (kor roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” I was introduced to this word when my daughter lived in New Zealand. To the indigenous people, the koru spiral represents the new shoots of the fern frond as it begins to unfurl, symbolizing new beginnings or a new phase of life. Koru also means positive […]
KORU (kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” For the indigenous people of New Zealand, the koru spiral represents a fern frond beginning to unfurl. The koru symbol embodies new beginnings, a new phase of life, renewal, hope for the future, positive change, personal growth, working in harmony, bringing people together, and being mindful of the good things in life.
At Koru Ceremony, we strive to personify these ideals and celebrate a new beginning through ceremony and ritual.
