Sheldon and Nick swapped the idea of a traditional wedding with an elopement to Coromandel Peak (aka Roys Peak). They knew all along that they didn’t want the stress of planning a big wedding and with friends and family all over the world in the times of Covid-19, an elopement just made sense. Getting to honour themselves, their commitment and to share the special celebration with their little girl Bridie was the most important thing. Not to mention, Wanaka is a beautiful and special part of the world that often draws our couples in!
With all this in mind, the pair organised all the practical and cute touches needed for a mountaintop elopement! Hiking boots were a no-brainer, even wee hiking boots for Bridie! The adorable tulle skirt, golden crown and star wand for Bridie made her feel just as special and included in the day as her mum and dad were also getting all dressed up. Up on the mountains, Sheldon, Nick and Bridie were all beaming with joy and happiness as they soaked up the view and each other, “officially” uniting their family and having loads of fun at the same time! From cuddles to twirls and to tosses in the air, it was an afternoon filled with love and family time.
Congratulations again, you three! We had such a lovely day with you and are so happy to be a part of your beautiful milestone moments. We know that your futures will be filled with tonnes of love, laughter and adventures – let us know if you do make the move to Wanaka and we will have to catch up 🙂 xxx
