Ling & Cory chose a Queenstown wedding adventure to mark the next milestone in their beautiful relationship together. Flying over from San Francisco to New Zealand was nothing new to the well-travelled lovebirds, who have visited countries all around the world together. Finding peace in the mountains of New Zealand and later, the beaches, was a perfect compromise.
With a mixed bag of weather, our first landing for Ling & Cory’s ceremony was diverted to the Earnslaw Ridgeline. Our landing site here was tremendously beautiful and moody. We were dwarfed by the impressive Earnslaw Glacier in one direction. In the other, we were looking down a rocky valley to the head of Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by towering mountains. With rocky terrain, some golden grass, moody clouds and warm sunshine shining through, the conditions were utterly gorgeous!
Afterwards, we flew into Earnslaw Burn valley itself. It’s impossible not to count your lucky stars on the day you get to marry the love of your life AND hang out in such an incredible, awe-inspiring location. The happy newly-weds totally embraced the conditions. Even catching droplets of water on their tongues, as it was cascading off from the waterfall as the wind and showering us with mist! We had so much fun under the waterfall but had to head up the hill to take in more of the valley’s beauty. Watching dozens of waterfalls run down the sides of the valley and the Earnslaw Glacier standing proudly above…It’s not something one can forget. 🙂
To finish, we popped champagne on the Queenstown lakefront, as the sun set across the water.
Congratulations again Ling and Cory! We had so so much fun with you and loved your spontaneity in agreeing to change your wedding date and go all in to make magic with what we had! We hope your next chapter is going well, with your homegrown vineyard, and wish you every happiness together 💕 xx
