Bonnibelle & Carl’s Wanaka Elopement Wedding

Carl & Bonnibelle live in Nelson, just at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. They decided to swap the milder winter up north, for a bit of snow on the Southern Alps to say their ‘I do’s’….. and what a stunning day they had.

They began their wedding with a flight from Wanaka airport to ‘Minaret Station’, and their intimate ceremony was held overlooking Lake Wanaka. Following their ‘I do’s’ and location photos on the mountain top, they flew back down to Wanaka where they caught the last of the sunlight for some lakeside shots. They were even lucky enough to have some beautiful leaves still holding on from Autumn!

Many thanks to the following suppliers:

Photography: Alpine Image Company

Flowers: Studio 24

Make-Up: Sanctuary Day Spa

Hair: Absolutely Fabulous Hair

Celebrant: Jools MacKnight

Helicopter: Alpine Helicopters




When people say getting married is one of the most stressful things you can do I could not disagree with them more. Boutique Weddings made the entire process from start to finish completely seamless. We were able to truly enjoy every moment and will cherish our memories forever. It was an unforgettable day and the most special moment of both our lives.
