Michelle and Herbi planned an epic elopement to Twin Peaks and Dragonfly Peak in Wanaka. It was our last wedding for the year 2020 and boy, it was a ripper! We had sunshine and blue skies with a touch of a brisk wind, which honestly was a welcome change from the sweltering days leading up to it.
The 12th of the 12th saw us meeting these two sweethearts at their Wanaka accommodation for a First Look moment. Michelle helped Herbi to get ready and then disappeared and re-emerged from their Air BnB in a stunning dress. Afterwards, we head off to Alpine Helicopters where our helicopter was waiting to whisk us up to the mountains! We had the ceremony at Twin Peaks followed by plenty of fun moments, all the while these two were soaking up the fews they had been dreaming of for a while!
From Twin Peaks, we continued on to Dragonfly Peak. The altitude and aspect meant that wind had a little more oomph behind it so Michelle donned Herbi’s jacket to keep the goosebumps away! The panoramic views up here are just breath-taking and the outlook over to Mt Aspiring is just dreamy. There was a little snow left behind, so ample opportunity for a snow fight for the newlyweds before cuddling up to get warm again!
The biggest congratulations from us again, Michelle and Herbi! It was such a pleasure getting to meet you both, help you get married and celebrate with so much adventure! We wish you all of the love, luck and continued adventure in the world xx
