Lake Erskine Queenstown Wedding | Alice + Gordon

What more can you say about Alice & Gordon’s wedding, when they eloped amongst the most beautiful scenery of New Zealand (and of the world right?!)

Lake Erskine is our favourite place to visit, and after some snow it’s absolutely delightful.

A fair bit of planning went into the location, timing and day to work around some sketchy weather, but we found the perfect break. We were pretty stoked with how it all turned out, with a morning departure, with the sun just high enough above the eastern ridgeline to light up the lake into its magical emerald colour.

Once back on the ground, we made a short drive out of Queenstown for a quiet and often missed beach for a few last shots.

Congrats again Alice + Gordon! xx

The Ledge Heli Wedding Queenstown | Jenny + Karl

Jenny & Karl travelled down from Auckland for their Queenstown heli wedding earlier this month. They got engaged a year ago, in Cardrona, whilst on a snowboarding holiday, so it was a perfect excuse to elope down here on the mountains.

We started with a first look nearby to the Heritage Hotel, where they got ready. Jenny & Karl then spent some time down on a beautiful beach, overlooking Cecil Peak, where we were soon to fly to.

After we landed, the wind picked up and quickly the clouds and lighting changed, which resulted in some incredible shooting conditions. Beautiful crespecular rays could be seen just before we left Cecil Peak, so we grabbed the flash and with the assistance of our pilot Paul, took some final shots.

Congratulations Jenny + Karl! xx

Queenstown Remarkables Wedding | Carina + Jakob

Carina & Jakob wed a month back on the top of the Remarkables amongst snow. We flew late in the afternoon, and captured some photos before hand down by the Shotover River, a favourite walk for our own family. The mountain was a fresh minus 2 degrees celsius, but that didn’t stop Carina & Jakob from having a snow ball fight at the end. The take off from Double Cone is quite spectacular, as we lift from over 6,500 feet. Their reaction was quite evident of the height. Once back on the ground, they popped some champagne, looking back to The Remarkables.

Jakob is also into his photography, so a week later, whilst they were on their roadie honeymoon, I took him out to Glenorchy for a photo workshop, something that I’ve been doing for many years via our Queenstown Photography Tours brand. It was awesome to spend a few more hours with Jakob and hear more about their adventures from back home in Queensland.

Congratulations again, Carina & Jakob! And keep those adventures coming! xx

Queenstown Weddings | Kylie + David

Kylie & David flew to Queenstown with their closest family and friends to wed on the gorgeous Bayonet Peaks. We flew across the lake in 3 helicopters, as Kylie arrived last with her bridesmaid and mum. After their beautiful ceremony, Shotover Wedding Films and myself captured lots of footage with the diverse scenery on offer. Kylie & David were also keen on a second landing to shoot in some spring snow, high on Cecil Peak. The snow was quite soft under foot, which made for some fun moments.

Once back on the ground, the Remarkable Experience (classic bus), picked everyone up and we went down to the waterfront for some cake.

Congratulations Kylie & David! xx

Coromandel Peak Wedding | Emma + Nate

We’ve had some spectacular weddings throughout 2017, and the elopement of Emma & Nate was nothing short of that!

Nate & Emma were in town as Nate’s a professional snowboarder and was competing in the NZ Winter Games. What a better place to elope, than in their favourite element.

Their story started back in 2010, when Nate had been training for the Vancouver Olympics, and broke his ankle just a couple of weeks out. But as fate would have it, Nate met Emma back in Australia soon afterwards. In 2011, Nate bounced back and went on to win the Gold in the Snowboard World Championships (half pipe). Pretty awesome mate!

Emma & Nate’s mountain wedding was full of tender moments, plenty of laughs and lots of snow. We flew to Coromandel Peak for their ceremony and champagne, before flying to Fog Peak for snow fights and incredible views of a remote area.

Also – how amazing are the dried flowers, put together by The Vase Flora & Foliage?!

Congrats! xx
