Spy: Richie and Gemma: The wedding of the decade

Richie McCaw and Gemma Flynn.

Congratulations to former All Black captain Richie McCaw and fiancee and Olympic gold hopeful, Black Stick Gemma Flynn on their New Year's engagement.

Will Gemma and Richie marry in Flynn's native Tauranga or McCaw's home turf North Otago?

Will the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge be invited to the McCaw wedding?

Will the PM make the cut?

With the Rio Olympics being held in August, and the Carters' and Williams' differing rugby season timetables to take into consideration, will an October wedding be in order?

Who will be best man and who will be the bridesmaids?

Will Flynn's brothers Isaac and Jared be ushers?

The dress, the venue and the guest list are all being speculated about, but Spy likes the fact they are so far doing it on their own terms. The New Zealand public will want to eat up every detail of the wedding of New Zealand's golden couple.

We can't wait.
