RUUSK Couples: TJ & Tanya
Centring their wedding on a spirit of openness, generosity and hospitality, TJ and Tanya's special day radiated warmth and community. Surrounded by family and friends, wholesome food and flowers grown in TJ's Uncle Maurice's garden, their wedding day celebrated their love and all the special people around them.
Tanya opted for a personalised Organic Gold band with a flush set Australian Green Sapphire paired with an Xs Organic Ring. TJ also presented Tanya with a special hand engraved Round Pendant necklace on their special day.

What did you love most about your wedding?
It was so joyful and fun! As soon as I (Tanya) walked into the room it felt full of love, warmth and joy. Everyone was so happy to be there and told us they had the best time! There was so much amazing food and a really beautiful community vibe. So many of our family and friends helped on the day and in the lead up to the wedding and we think that’s really what made the day what it was.
What do you love most about your rings, how did you find your experience with RUUSK?
We were so happy with RUUSK! Tania is so lovely and patient and helped us to create something simple and unique. Tanya loves the green sapphire in her ring and its handmade and ethically sourced qualities. Tania also made a gold pendant necklace which TJ gifted to Tanya on our special day.
What excites you most about life together?
We’re excited that we have one another and get to do life together, in all its ups and downs. We’re excited about creating a home and family based on generosity, a welcoming spirit and hospitality. We want our home to be beaming with joy, food, love and openness, just like our wedding day.
