Tauranga-born hockey star Gemma Flynn gave a nod to her Bay roots today as she and her new husband Richie McCaw stepped out together for the first time as a married couple.

The new Mrs McCaw posted a photo on Instagram of her wearing Camilla minidress Love Weave from Mount Maunganui boutique Sisters and Co.

Our first day as Mr & Mrs McCaw ❤

Rodelle Payne, owner of Sisters and Co, said Gemma was a long-time, loyal customer of the shop and she had asked Gemma to be a brand ambassador for the store given her profile as an elite hockey player.

Ms Payne had chosen a wardrobe for Gemma last year and the playsuit was one of the items.


"She nailed it. It's so exciting, I'm very proud that she's chosen to wear a dress from the Bay."

"I think Gemma is an amazing girl and Richie is one lucky guy."
