Our Team

Your Host, Anna Urwin

Gravity Elopements and Gravity Fishing are run by Anna and Nate. Preferring an intimate ceremony herself, Anna noticed an opportunity to extend their passion for Stewart Island, great food, and a connection with nature to offer couples a memorable and no-fuss experience with Gravity Elopements. 

Anna’s calm energy and focus on detail means couples are in safe hands. She has curated a group of professionals that share the same vision, to help make every couples day special.

“Stewart Islands combination of remote sandy beaches, lush bush, and the dynamic colours of the water and sky create a truly majestic setting.  I’m always in ore of its beauty and am grateful to be able to share it with more people.” ~Anna 

When not planning and hosting weddings and elopements, you’ll find Anna exploring her greater backyard with Nate and their two young children in Otatara.
