Glorify the struggle
All couples go through hard times.

When you ask happy couples about the story of their relationship, they tend to “glorify the struggle.” They talk proudly about how they’ve overcome their challenges together. There is a strong sense of “we-ness” in the relationship.

What does Koru mean?

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.
