Lucy and Johnny

Urban professionals from Auckland

Lucy & Johnny met in a bar in London and after a couple of glasses of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Johnny managed to get her number. A few years later Lucy and Johnny moved to New Zealand, have since bought a house and are planning to marry at Millbrook resort in 2014.

Whilst on holiday in South America, three days of rain and a steady stream of wine saw them writing their own cookbook ‘Co-habiting Cooking’, which is a compendium of meals designed especially for couples! Their dream is for it to be published one day. English-born Lucy, 27, is a high-school teacher, while 31 year-old Johnny is the sales and marketing manager of his long-standing family business. Lucy is the organised one whereas Johnny considers himself more spontaneous, and while cooking together is their greatest joy – it can also cause friction; they argue when things don’t go to plan in the kitchen, hence the cookbook!
