Catherine & Sam | Wanaka Wedding Planner | Wanaka Lakeside Wedding

Catherine & Sam have been together for 10 years, and when they started thinking about a trip of a lifetime to New Zealand, they were pretty taken with the idea of getting married here too! They didn’t tell a soul that they planned on a Wanaka Wedding on their travels. Funnily enough, the first family member to discover what they had done was Catherine’s sister, whose eagle eyes spotted a ring on Sam’s finger in a photo sent back home! The cat is now well and truly out of the bag, and we were delighted to hear how happy everyone was for this gorgous couple back home in England. How could they not be?? If you are going to elope, why not do it in style…. by helicopter in some gale force wind, followed by a ride in your VW combi, and top it off by being heckled by some rogue cattle along the way.

Catherine & Sam, thank you so much for your adventurous spirits and your huge smiles. You rocked your elopement wedding and we can’t imagine it having been any other way!!!! Enjoy xxx

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
