Lacuna + Co jumped into the scene in 2019. After over a decade working in the events industry, Lacuna + Co owner Kelly Marsden, decided it was time to focus her creative energy and industry experience on projects she could be passionate about whilst working with an array of incredible clients and well-known and loved brands.
Known for her attention to detail, love of spreadsheets and often to be heard saying ‘we could put a decal on that’, Kelly works with her clients as she would her friends, with a smile on her dial, a sense of humour and on each event as if it were her own.
The Kindness Collective
Christmas Joy Store
The Kindness Collective 'Christmas Joy Store' is a safe space for parents and caregivers to have the dignity of choice when shopping for their families this Christmas. With toys and food available it has been a wonderful way to help families in Auckland and give back to the community.

A pop-up bar activation held on the North Shore of Auckland. Chosen for its beachfront position, Franc's was the venue for this Mount Gay Rum-Shack takeover. Enjoyed over the summer months this activation was a key piece of visibility for the brand, to encourage feet through the door and liquid on lips!
A special drinks menu serving a range of Mount Gay cocktails was created for the duration of the activation.

Haydn + Rollett
The 75th Anniversary event for Haydn and Rollett. A milestone for this construction company, the night was about celebrating this huge achievement with staff, family and friends.
David St George
- with Kong, Christchurch
Lyre's, a range of impossibly crafted, non-alcoholic spirits, decided to throw a party (which happened to coincide during the month of 'being dry in July').
A selection of premium non-alcoholic cocktails were served, canapés enjoyed and the word of Lyre's, spread.
David James Studio
It has been a pleasure working with Kelly. She enthusiastically took on the challenge of putting together our first Quiz Night Fundraiser, [...] sourcing sponsors and promoting the sell out event. We received great feedback from those who attended on how smoothly the night went and how much fun they had, and exceeded expectations on the funds raised.
THE KINDNESS COLLECTIVE
Quite simply, Kelly was incredible. From the start of the project, to the very last day of packdown, her knowledge, time, talents and passion helped carry our project to the very end which enabled us to deliver Christmas to over 5,000 families.
When we gave Kelly our vision for how we'd like the store to look and operate, she took our vision and created something even better! She worked with suppliers, volunteers and our corporate partners to pull it together ready for opening. Kelly's attention to detail, knowledge of functional event spaces and genuine passion for making magic helped make the store so successful.
HAYDN + ROLLETT
We would like to thank you [...] for the awesome production you put on for us. The whole process was seamless and went without any issues. We know your team put a huge effort in. We can’t wait for our next event and you guys will be our first choice.
It was such a joy working with you. Thank you for all the care and manaaki you showed all of us and the teams. I felt like always you had an eye on what might be coming up, or what might be needed well before any of us spotted it. You are such a talent in your work, and bring the best energy into the room. Looking forward to our next collaboration!
