Candace and Anthony had the best Queenstown wedding adventure! Okay…so, we’re a little biased here, but it was Warren’s little sister’s wedding! We were stoked when they told us they wanted to plan an intimate wedding in Queenstown with just their immediate families. And even more happy and honoured to help look after the planning and photography of their day.
Candace and Anthony chose to have their wedding ceremony at Chapel by the Lake, Stoneridge Estate. It was the perfect combination of beautiful gardens, an awesome lake/mountain view and the summer vibes with blue skies and bees buzzing around. Shortly afterwards, it was time to share our adventure lifestyle around, so we jumped on a much-anticipated chopper ride! We flew across to Lake Erskine in the Fiordland National Park, and then had a second landing on The Ridge at Cecil Peak.
Once the newly-weds were back at ground level, we joined the rest of the family celebrating the afternoon away with lawn games and drinks. Afterwards, we had a delicious dinner in the cosy Board Room. Watching the sun go down and light up the picture window was mesmerising, and before long the fire lanterns around Stoneridge Estate were lit for that extra touch of magic.
One month later, we headed over to their home on the other side of the ditch…Melbourne, Australia. Candace and Anthony had a wedding party with their friends and extended Aussie family back home, which was a fantastic wedding combination: An intimate destination wedding plus an epic rager back home. 😆
Congratulations again, Candace and Anthony! We were so thrilled to be involved in your wedding day and we honestly find a new favourite photo every time we reminisce on that gorgeous summer’s day. Thanks for being awesome and letting us share our slice of the world with you both. We love you both and know that you will have an incredible and joyful year ahead, with a new kind of adventure. 🥰 xx
