Deb & Juan’s Wanaka Elopement Wedding

Deb & Juan are from Singapore & Ecuador, but they met in Melbourne where they are both studying and working. Deb is a University Lecturer, and Juan is a Medical Practitioner who is also studying to move into the psychology. Needless to say they work pretty hard, so having a destination wedding, and gaining a holiday at the same time as getting married felt like the perfect plan! Their wedding was going to be the first time that their families met, and so they wanted to create something really special for them all to enjoy together. After much thought and planning, Deb & Juan decided to fly their 6 guests up to the stunning Coromandel Peak on Mount Roy to say their ‘i do’s’. After a little bit of weather watching and shuffling around… we found the perfect window for the ceremony… and we just love the stormy skies that crept into the background for some of their shots later on.

Deb & Juan… CONGRATULATIONS!! Thank you both for being such a truly sweet and lovely couple. It was an honour to help you plan this beautiful wedding and to be a part of such a special day in your lives. We hope that these photos will keep the story of your wedding alive in your minds for many, many years to come xxx

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.
