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!

My husband and I eloped in March last year after many stressful months of trying to organize a wedding back home. Boutique Wedding made our wedding dreams possible and helped us create a wedding day that was unforgettable and absolutely amazing! Plus the whole planning process was relaxed and stress free. Alpine Image Company did an AMAZING job on our photography! All our photos are breathtaking and we just love them!

Matt and I honestly can't thank you all enough for making our wedding day an absolute dream. It was the best day of my life, and I am so happy we decided to get married the way we did xx
