Madison & Logan, February 2020 – 

“Our elopement still feels like a dream and our pictures turned out AMAZING! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience from start to finish. Steph & Warren took care of everything for us and we really felt like we were in good hands throughout the entire process. On our wedding day, we felt as if we were with friends! Steph really knew how to make us laugh and feel as comfortable as possible throughout the day. We have so many fun memories and hundreds of amazing photos to hold on to. We are so happy with our decision to book with Mountain Weddings. Please do yourself a favour and get in touch with them. You will be SO glad that you did!”

“Our experience with Mountain Weddings could not have been more perfect! Our wedding was the most memorable, the absolute best, and the easiest! We didn’t have much time to plan but Warren and Steph made it all happen in such a short amount of time. They handled all the details from the very beginning to the very end. Both Warren, Steph and PhiIippa (our celebrant) are all such amazing and genuinely kind people. It was awesome to share our wedding day with them. The photos were just unreal and captured our day and our personalities. We could not be any happier with how everything turned out! It was the best day of our lives!”

“I had been in contact with Mountain Weddings for the most part of a year. They answered every email promptly and gave excellent recommendations, they made us feel so involved and taken care of! Everything ran so smoothly and Warren was great to have around on the day providing us with many laughs. I don’t know how he did it, but he was able to capture so many angles on our wedding day it was like we had 10 photographers and not one. I was shocked how quickly he turned over the completed photos was only 2 1/2 weeks! My now husband and I were shocked at how amazing the pictures turned out and we couldn’t be happier! If your looking to get hitched look no further Warren is the best!”

“If you’re getting married then look no further than Mountain Weddings! Warren and Steph are a dream team. They put together a magical day that we’ll never forget! ✨ Warren is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to choosing ceremony and/or helicopter-landing locations. And of course he is an amazing photographer 😉 And Steph made sure everything was set up beautifully and running smoothly on the day. When we got our photos we were absolutely blown away.. and all our family and friends say they’re the best photos they’ve ever seen! Highly recommend 10/10 🙌

Shawna & Edan, November 2019 – 

“Eloping in New Zealand was the best decision we ever made! Mainly in part because we had Warren and Steph working with us. We cannot express enough how awesome this dynamic duo is, both professionally and personally. Even though we live in the United States and they had never met us before, they nailed every detail of our wedding day. Steph’s attention to detail, creativity and professionalism is everything we could’ve ever asked for during this process.

The morning of our wedding day, the weather didn’t look so good, which you can imagine is very stressful when you are planning to take a helicopter to the top of a mountain for your ceremony! Although we were freaking out a bit, Steph’s calmness got us through our anxiety and our day worked out perfectly. Warren’s photography skills are incredible; they are magazine-worthy. His vision and technique make every photo jaw dropping. We had over 70 favorite photos and had a hard time choosing what wedding photos to display in our home. Not to mention, he is very professional and easy to work with, he made us feel so comfortable on our special day.

In short, Steph and Warren are the dream wedding team to work with! From start to finish, they were thorough and made this whole process easy. They even met up with us the day prior to our wedding to go over all the details, presented an itinerary and ensured that our vision was met. They exceeded every expectation we ever had of our special day. If you still are having a hard time choosing what company to go with, just look at their website and Instagram pictures: It’s an easy choice.”

Sophie & James - September 2018

My husband and I had the most amazing experience with Mountain Weddings. There is not one thing we would have changed. Warren and his team went above and beyond to ensure everything on the day ran smoothly and we had the most magical day. Highly recommended!!

Thank you again so much for today, Dylan and I are literally on Cloud Nine and feel like our day has been absolutely perfect for us: Relaxed, fun, full of love with our nearest and dearest. We wouldn’t change a single thing about today and that wouldn’t have been possible without you and Steph. These photos just capture the day perfectly! We are so IN LOVE! You really are the best! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Warren made the entire process of planning our elopement an absolute joy! His sense of humour, and the fantastic team members he selects for the complimenting services (videographers, flowers etc.) made our wedding day a fun, relaxed, and perfectly captured experience. I can't recommend Mountain Weddings highly enough. Thank you again! :)

“Warren, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so memorable and special! To many I am known as a perfectionist and to say the day exceeded my expectations is an absolute understatement… it was pure magic! From the planning phase right through to the post wedding stage, you have been extremely professional, prompt with email replies and incredibly helpful and detailed in your responses. You made us feel so relaxed, calm and comfortable on our wedding day, while capturing the essence of our day perfectly! We are over the moon with the end result and have had difficulty choosing our favourite images as there are so many unbelievable shots. Many of our family members and friends have said that it truly looks like a real life, enchanted fairy tale and the photos are the best weddings photos they have seen. Thank you again for sharing your undeniable talent with us, we will be forever grateful!”

Katie & Neil, May 2017 – 

“What can I say? If you want the best wedding with epic photos, seamless planning and a “nothing’s impossible” attitude that only years of experience can bring, then Warren and Steph are your team. They made planning from overseas a breeze with all the hard work done. I could trust 100% in all of their recommendations meaning no time was wasted searching through endless celebrants, makeup or helicopter companies. Any worry about the weather was subsided with Warren’s somewhat spooky predictive abilities and their brilliant back up plans. Every single one of our locations were stunning including Tutoko Glacier, Earnslaw Burn, Lake Erskine and Lake Quill. He has a natural ability to put everyone at ease and the results speak for themselves. Our photos are amazing and exactly what we wanted. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mountain Weddings for your special day. Every one of your photos will be stunning and every single minute will be an amazing memory. Thank you so much!”

Renee & Jason, December 2019 –

“Weddings are apparently supposed to be very stressful… ours was not! First off, correspondence with Steph and Warren was friendly, fast and transparent, and booking with them was an easy process. Our actual wedding day was forecasted for heavy rainfall and stormy weather, so they pulled a tonne of strings to bring our entire wedding forward to the day before. Literally everything on the day ran seamlessly – you couldn’t even tell that the whole program for the day was shuffled forward 24 hours! Warren captured the moments and landscape so well! When we look back on the photos we can’t believe how wonderful the whole day was! Everyone comments on how amazing our photos are! A beautiful experience with beautiful photos to match! It was exactly what we envisioned it to be. Thanks for making our perfect wedding happen!”

Raeesa & Karim, December 2019 –

“Warren and Steph were a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. We’re from Canada so it was great that Warren and Steph were able to plan everything so perfectly (including flowers, hair, etc). We had bad weather in the forecast so they were able to move the wedding up on short notice so that we had the best weather possible. Morgan was our photographer from Mountain Weddings and she was awesome! She made us feel very comfortable and captured some amazing shots. We love our picture popping the champagne bottle! We also love that we received preview pics the day after our elopement because we were able to share our special day with family and friends so quickly!!We highly recommend using Mountain Weddings for your wedding. Warren and Steph will help plan and capture your special day perfectly!”

 

Katie & Jamie, November 2019 – 

“Jamie and I cannot thank you enough for the planning and coordination on our wedding day! You made the day happen and come together sooo seamlessly, even when the weather was at odds with us! I am beyond grateful for your beautiful creativity and eye for detail in the planning and styling, as well as your calm, kind, generous and organised manner. You just made this wedding gig planning an easy and enjoyable process! You have a passion and talent for what you do that is so clear in working with you and the end product you create! We were blown away by what you created for our reception, and so grateful for your management and coordination with all the vendors involved, as well as coordinating ‘the hustle’ that was pulling our reception forward by hours!! You are an absolute gem! We can’t thank you enough Steph! Katie and Jamie xo”

Poya & Nathan, September 2019 – 

“We had the most magical day thanks to Warren and Steph. They made planning our destination wedding a stress free experience. From the wedding ceremony to mountain photo shoot and reception everything went perfectly on the day. We had so much fun and we are so happy with the photos! Leading up to the wedding, communication with Warren has been excellent and we immediate felt he is the photographer that we have been looking for!

We were originally going to elope but decided that we would like to share our special day with our close friends and family so that’s when we decided on extra planning service with Steph. She really went above and beyond for us and made the day went so smoothly. She was able to get my vision and styled our wedding perfectly! Warren and Steph are both so talented at what they do. My husband and I can’t recommend them enough. Thank you both so much once again!”

Jill & Jeff, April 2017 – 

“Jeff and I can’t sing the praises of Warren and Mountain Weddings highly enough. Warren created and immortalized for us the most fantastic wedding we could imagine—a heli-wedding on Tutoko Glacier with a second landing at Lake Erskine. It was, both literally and figuratively, a peak experience. To do this, Warren coordinated numerous specialists with grace and efficiency. As professionals ourselves with decades of experience (Jeff is an architect and I am a lawyer), we are not easily impressed, but Warren’s combination of photographic artistry, social grace, and genius for organization were astonishing. He handled the complex process of helping us design and celebrate our wedding day with empathy, enthusiasm, and precision, always going the extra mile to insure that each aspect was terrific. Best of all, Warren produced an array of photos that captured our love and the beauty of our setting with unstudied ease. We can’t thank him enough for making our wedding day perfect!”
