Marg + Emil | Lochnagar + Vanguard Peak | Queenstown Winter Wedding

Marg & Emil decided on a winter wedding in Queenstown to celebrate their marriage and have a sweet holiday all in one. We had a sweet First Look at the patio of their accommodation before heading off to our helicopter adventure.

With snow-capped mountains and gorgeous clear waters, Lochnagar set an idyllic scene for the two to be married, with Marg’s sister as witness and the mountains watching on. The conditions were mild with the sun shining down on us, whilst a small breeze on the lake ruffled the water up enough to make the light glimmer and show off the colours even more. After some exploring around the rocky outcrops and beach front at Lochnagar, we headed on to Vanguard Peak for a second landing in the snow. Here, we were treated to 360 degree views to choose from, though the sun-drenched valley we had just flown in from was a winner. A perfect opportunity for popping some champagne and throwing some snow, before it was time to jump back in the chopper and head back to Queenstown for Marg & Emil’s wedding dinner with more friends.

Marg had a gorgeous knee-length dress with golden fabric covered in glittered leaves and a stunning pair of Valentino studded heels to match. Marg also had the prettiest collection of delicate jewellery to add to her look, layering necklaces and dainty earrings with total style. Sarah from The Flower Room created the most delicious bouquet in pinks and lilacs that tied the whole look together and of course that white fur jacket came in very handy on the breezy mountain. (And don’t worry, Marg changed into a pair of sneakers to walk in the snow!!) Emil equally had plenty of style, with a Louis Vuitton belt, navy suit and lilac tie that complemented the couple’s style to a T.

Congratulations again, Marg and Emil! We were so happy to meet you both and help you get married, and loved just how much you embraced the day, each other and the landscapes. Wishing you both plenty of love, laughter and adventure for all your years ahead xx
