Hi there! My name is Dominique. I was raised in Raglan since I was 5 years old, and Bow Street Studios was a journey I stepped into in 2009.  I was a young woman, 24 years, with my 1 year old son sitting on my hip. At the time it was an empty premises and I have grown the space and business to where it is today.

For me this place has become like the big old Pohutukawa tree that sits in our courtyard. A loving and consistent presence that has rooted down beside me.

I am so grateful– for the livelihood, the specialness of this place, for the endurance I have found as a business woman, and for the guidance that has been given to me along the way.

In 2019 I transitioned the business to self-check in. I hope this website provides you with all the information you need, and if you have any additional questions please give me an email via the contact page or

Warm regards, Dominique.
