There will be many Covid stories in the coming years. Last minute cancellations, heart-breaking decisions, rescheduling and patience. A lot of patience! After being forced to cancel their wedding in South Africa at the very last minute, and make a hasty retreat back to New Zealand as Covid hit, Ashley & Daryn were determined to make the best of the situation they found themselves in. Despite having had their worlds and plans turned upside down, they felt incredibly lucky to be in the position to travel domestically. More than anything, they just wanted to be married, and the idea of a eloping, heli-wedding styles, in the windswept mountains of Queenstown was born!
At sub zero temperatures (it was mid-winter!) it may not have been quite as balmy as a South African wedding. But equally as beautiful, spectacular and full of love.
