Susannah + Firas | Chapel by the Lake + Coromandel Peak Elopement

For Susannah and Firas’ elopement, we headed to the stunning Chapel by the Lake in Queenstown. We planned a super intimate ceremony for just the two of them in the gardens overlooking Lake Hayes. The day started with the bride and groom getting ready separately at their beautiful accommodation, Queenscliff villa hosted by Relax It’s Done. With 180 degree views out to Lake Wakatipu and the iconic peaks of Queenstown, it was a dreamy location for their last moments as fiancés.

Soon enough the pair were ready and Firas was nervously waiting at the altar for his beautiful bride. The ceremony was complete with a jaw-dropping floral archway, spring flowers and gorgeous weather. After the ceremony, we ventured down into the gardens for a cute toast with their favourite: sugar-free red bull! The party really started after that, with Susannah and Firas’ favourite tunes and sweet dance moves kicking into action on the picturesque foot bridge down in the gardens, before we hid away in the gorgeous blossom trees.

Afterwards, it was time for our helicopter adventure to Coromandel Peak. Flying from Queenstown over to Wanaka, we met a fair bit of rain on the journey but were confident it would be clear enough to enjoy the afternoon on the mountains. Making it to the other side was phenomenal, with the most amazing light coming from rain clouds in the distance and the setting sun casting hues of amber and gold across the landscape.

Congratulations again, Susannah and Firas! It was a total joy to be a part of your wedding and we absolutely loved the charm, laughter and total smitten love that you brought to your wedding day. Wishing you loads of love, fun and dancing for your futures together xx
