Sam Ovens Wife: Ashleigh Ovens

Sam Ovens wife is Ashleigh Ovens, Born Ashleigh Frazer in 1993 on the South Island of New Zealand. The two met in 2014 and got married on December 15, 2017. Sam described meeting his wife once saying they met while out for St. Patrick’s day in Auckland when their two friend groups starting chatting and they quickly became friends and eventually a couple. Sam says that they are both quite introverted and that is why their relationship has worked out and they get along. He has said  “We don’t like to be really loud all the time and stuff. We’re both introverts. So that’s why we get along quite a lot.”

Wedding 

On December 15, 2017 Sam Ovens married his wife Asheigh Ovens. Their wedding took place in Queenstown, New Zealand. Sam described the wedding by saying “it was just my wife and I, a wedding photographer and a helicopter pilot. We just went out for the day and just started flying up into these mountains and getting photos, hanging out.”

The photographer from the day posted this on Facebook “This beautiful couple eloped in Queenstown and I was lucky enough to document their love in the incredible southern landscape. We flew up the mountains, walked along a glacier and stood by the most clear blue lake” 

Sam Ovens Marrying His Wife

Sam says he and his wife decided to have this style of wedding that he described as a “Minimum viable wedding” by listing all the variables in a wedding that adds value from the perspective of him and his wife. They found that the dress, the ring, the wedding photos, the location of the event, and the food were the only important things. They decided that having a ceremony and having lots of people come to an event was not important to them. This philosophy of cutting the waste and focusing on the most important things to make them great is something that Sam follows in all areas of his life.

Move to New York 

Ashleigh Ovens moved to New York City with her now husband Sam Ovens in 2015. They stayed in an apartment in Midtown Manhattan. This was their first time moving out of New Zealand and into the USA. They lived with their two cats Kitty and Coco. 

Sam once described his reasoning for moving to New York City as wanting to go to America because it is the best place in the world to start and grow a business with a huge market, while New Zealand only has 4 million people. And what better place to challenge yourself than to live in the most competitive city in the world, NYC. He also says any time he hits a plateau, he moves. Moving into something bigger, and far away from where you are is best. Ashleigh being the committed companion she is to Sam, went along with him to the big city. Sam’s willingness to share so much about his personal life online also helps give trust in people who ask the age old question “Is Sam Ovens a Scam 2021“.

She seems to be excited about being surrounded by nature and having a yard again, just like the way she grew up in New Zealand. 

Sam also says that Ashleigh played a big role in the decision to move to California, saying that “Ashleigh didn’t really like New York. She came from a country town in New Zealand so she’s used to being in nature and all that. And New Zealand’s a very ‘nature’ place too. And so she didn’t really like being in the city. She wanted to be able to go out and enjoy things. She also didn’t like the winter. And she loved Venice, that was her favorite place in all of America. And if she’s happier, then that makes me happier because her happiness affects my happiness.”
