Malie and Harold traded the Hawaiian Tropics for the beauty of our South Island for their beautiful New Zealand elopement. The loved-up duo celebrated both their daughter Mehana’s first birthday and their long overdue wedding day in style!
Malie and Harold chose an Air BnB in Queensberry to holiday in, which made for a stunning backdrop for a First Look. Malie wore a gorgeous low-backed gown that was paired with an incredible bouquet. She also mixed up the look with a gorgeous creative bouquet using combination of fresh and dried flowers. We also organised a cute flower-crown for little Mehana to wear.
Flying to Coromandel Peak on a moody afternoon, Malie and Harold shared their vows (and baby-holding duties) on top of the world. We had rays of light peek in and out of the ceremony before heading on an adventure to capture some more epic shots. As the temperature dipped a little, Malie adorned a denim jacket with custom “wifey” detailing on the back.
On the way back from Aspiring Helicopters, we stopped along the road to check out some nearby waterfalls for a few last photos. Here, we ran into a curious flock of sheep, which made for a pretty good laugh and some awesome photobombs. We jumped out of the car again to capture some portraits in golden light and long grass.
Congratulations again Malie and Harold and thank you for letting us adventure with you! We absolutely loved the personality you brought to your special day and were so happy to help make your sweet family “official” xx
