Earnslaw Burn, Queenstown – Mountain Weddings

Earnslaw Burn is one of our favourite locations, nestled in the valley below the Mt Earnslaw summit and glacier. We can land right next to Gilkison Falls (featured in the Hobbit movie!) while being dwarfed beneath the Earnslaw Glacier. This spot is guaranteed to take your breath away and feels like a hidden paradise every time we visit. It also offers a huge variety of epic landscapes to choose from for your ceremony and photos – from the mighty waterfall, to mirrored tarns, huge boulders and the glacier itself. For a second landing in winter and spring, the eastern Earnslaw Burn Ridgeline is a gorgeous snowy spot with elevated views out to the mountains.
