Jo & Dan | Lake Wanaka Elopement

Jo & Dan are both from England, but emmigrated to New Zealand with their respective families when they were kids, funnily enough… the exact same year as each other. Fast forward 20 or so years, and their Englishness (read excellent sense of humour!) must have drawn them together and here they are, tying the knot in Wanaka!

Their stunning lakeside ceremony on a calm Autumn day was simply beautiful. Their closest friends and family had traveled down from Auckland to celebrate with them, and they said their vows infront of this intimate group at the gorgeous Beacon Point beach. After the ceremony, they flew to Coromandel Peak to capture some stunning landscape location photos as the sun set over Lake Wanaka. And what an evening they had! Breathtaking!

Huge Congratulations Jo & Dan xxx

Stacey & Tony | West Wanaka Wedding

Stacey & Tony have been together for 10 years (wow!). They moved to Perth from Auckland 6 years ago, and have been thinking about living in Central Otago ever since!

Tony went to the local school here in Wanaka (Mount Aspiring Collage), and the couple have always dreamed about coming back here more permanently. They already have a gorgeous little boy together, and would love for him to be able to go to the same (awesome!) school as his Dad. Originally, they had decided to skip the engagement side of things, as their beautiful son was testament enough to their life together… but more recently they decided to start planning a Wanaka elopement wedding as a sentimental start to their future return to the area.

The wedding day itself was simply perfect. Despite some pretty strong winds they were blessed with some beautiful blue skies and were still able to take the helicopter ride that they were so looking forward to. Stacey looked absolutely incredible in her Suzanne Harward couture gown, and Tony looked super sharp in his suit too! Not only are these guys completely gorgeous, but they are the kindest and sweetest people to go along with it. Stacey & Tony…. we wish you all the very best for your future together, and can’t wait for you to settle her ein Wanaka!! xxx

Ya & Yue | Autumn Wedding Shoot

Ya & Yue’s pre wedding shoot started outside of Queenstown at a stunning location called Moke Lake. With it being Autumn here at the moment the light can be beautifully soft and we were extra lucky that the grass is still nice and long… which made for some very romantic and dreamy images! After some shots down by Lake Wakatipu, Ya, Yue & their photographer set off for Arrowtown to catch some of the famous Autumn colours in the pretty little village just a short drive from Queenstown itself.

As evening drew closer, the shoot ended in true style with a helicopter ride to Cecil Peak and a beautiful blessing ceremony where Ya & Yue exchanged rings and vows. It was just a tad chilly (3 degrees!! eek!) but the late hour paid off, and just as they were set to fly home, they were treated to some spectacular light as the sun set over the Southern Alps.

All in all, a pretty epic day for this amazing couple… and we couldn’t be happier for them xxx

Claire & Dan

Claire and Dan are the sweetest couple who got married on a bluebird summer’s day in Wanaka.

They flew over from Australia with a few friends in tow for a beautiful mountain wedding full of smiles and a few teary moments. After their exciting flight they headed out for some location photos around Wanaka before joining their guests for a celebratory dinner. To start off married life together they went off on a month long camper van adventure around New Zealand. What a way to do it!

We couldn’t be happier for you Claire and Dan! A huge congratulations to you and thank you for choosing Boutique Weddings NZ to help you with your gorgeous destination wedding and letting us share your day! xx
