Toni and Nick planned a beautiful intimate celebration including flights to Earnslaw Burn and Lake Erskine for their wedding in Queenstown. We organised a sweet First Look in a clearing near their accommodation, with family watching on making it a totally cute moment! From there, we stole the bride and groom away for our mountain adventure before the ceremony and party kicked in!

We flew out to Lake Erskine where we had plenty of beautiful landscapes and angles to play around with, including the waterfall that runs down the side of the mountain and made for some very cool and unique perspectives. From there, we went on to Earnslaw Burn. As we were doing things in a reverse order to the typical flow of the day, with a mid-morning flight before the ceremony, making for a seamless afternoon of celebrations, food and drink, we were welcomed into a fully sun-lit valley at Earnslaw Burn. A different feeling to usual, as the cliff-side throws the valley into shade for most of the day in summer! Here, the breeze played havoc with Toni’s veil but in the most comical (and romantic!) way, making for some awesome moments. The dozens of cascading waterfalls were also incredible to watch, hear and capture.

After our helicopter adventure, we headed back to Glenfiddich Lodge to make things official with family and friends watching on at the ceremony. Toni and Nick organised an epic grazing platter and cheese cake for the afternoon and there were nothing but good vibes to enjoy on this summer afternoon!

Congratulations again, Toni and Nick!! We loved hanging out with you and exploring our mountains a little differently to usual! Wishing you and your fur-babies all the best for everything, with loads of love, laughter and adventures ❤️ xx
