Additional celebrations will be held in New York, and in Santa Barbara, California. Invitations have already started to be sent out for the private wedding.

Born in New Zealand, and residing in the USA, and previously London and Australia, the stunning Ms. Wilding was seen two weeks ago awarding the prizes on Opening Day at the 2014 Polo at historic Santa Barbara Polo Club. The same Club where Prince William played a few short months ago.

Ms Wilding also raised and distributed tens of thousand of dollars for CHCH quake victims in 2011 and 2012 .Ms Wilding was thanked by New Line executives and other organizations for her work on all three Lord of the Ring films.

Ms. Wilding has retained a consistently high profile in the USA and elsewhere throughout the years.Ms. Wilding was recently seen inThe Hollywood Reporter and Variety as well as consumer media. Ms. Wilding's critically acclaimed feature documentary,Buddha Wild Monk in a Hut was one of the most successful documentaries ever released, playing for a combined total over 60 days in mainstream cinemas worldwide. Ms. Wilding starred in the film, in addition to directing and producing it. The film was blessed by his Holiness, the Dalai Lama.

The film continues to play in Museums and elsewhere with a successful showing in Santa Barbara, California, just as Ms. Wilding was leaving for her visit to New Zealand. Mr. Sved is an award winning restoration architect and designer whose work includes the 2003 United States Restoration Project for the Year. His work has incorporated large train stations, museums, churches, other public monuments and civic structures, as well as residences.

Ms. Wilding and Mr, Sved said they are excited to be having the wedding ceremony in Anna's home town and country. "The Wilding family is planning on using local vendors as much as possible. No news on the dress yet - Ms. Wilding said her options are completely openminded when it comes to the wedding dress, and has no idea what she will wear, yet but will work with a local designer or explore some ideas of her own."Ms Wilding said it was unlikely to be a tradional wedding dress. Mr Sved,who was educated at The Dalton School in New York, Randolph Macon college and University of Virgnia , said "I am thrilled to be marrying such a lovely and worldly beauty, and honoured to be so welcomed by her esteemed family.

To be able to have the ceremony in Christchurch makes it even more special.”
