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

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
