Lisa + Jens | The Remarkables + Vanguard Peak | Queenstown Mountain Elopement

Lisa and Jens thought it would be a great idea to seal the deal with an elopement on top of a mountain in Queenstown. And we couldn’t really agree more, right?! They are adventurers who love to have fun AND Covid-19 happened to mean their families were a world away from them in Belgium. After a pretty comprehensive study of all the locations we fly to, the pair settled on The Remarkables and Vanguard Peak, which gave us lots of variety between big open vistas, lake views, grassy and rocky areas, mountain and valley views plus a little bit of snow!

We started the day at their accommodation to capture a few details involved with their story; like Lisa’s All-Star chucks, which are a girl’s best friend on the mountain (not heels)! Jens had an awesome mountain-inspired wedding band and Steph from Orange Blossom Designs created a colourful, wild-flower inspired bouquet and buttonhole for the pair. So we had a sweet first look down by the lake before jumping in the chopper for our double mountain adventure.

Lisa and Jens are childhood sweethearts and having grown up, studied and travelled the world together, their connection, joy and love was instantly apparent. Completely upbeat with a smile and laughter waiting to break out at any moment – their energy is tangible even through the still moments that we captured. Whether it was a cheeky bum grab, jokes, reminiscing, hopes for the future, mischievous comments, a fiery sunset dance or the most epic champagne pop – these two were ready to create memories and magic up in the mountains and we all had so much fun 🙂

CONGRATS on your wedding, Lisa and Jens! We are so happy for you both and hope that you made memories to last a lifetime. Wishing you loads more adventures, love, colour and sunsets for your futures together xx
