Wanaka & Queenstown Wedding Planning FAQ’s

Q. What happens if it is raining?

A. Luckily in this area it’s a dry climate rather than wet so we get very few wet days each year. If it does rain on your day then we will arrange to hold your ceremony at an alternative location. If you’re not able to take your heli-flight due to the weather, there are still plenty of options for your photos. Stormy skies can make the shots look amazing… so bad weather isn’t necessarily a bad thing… quite the opposite!


Q. How many photos will we receive?

A. The number of photos completely depends on how it goes on the day and if you would like to add any extra photography time to your package. Your Alpine Image Co. photographer will take as many photos as they need to at your photo shoot, to get a lovely selection of images that tell the story of your day. They will edit out any that are sub-standard or double ups and you will receive the rest.


Q. How many people can the helicopter take to the mountain top?

A. There are different helicopters that can take a range from 3-6 passengers. Depending on how many passengers you will have with you we can book the appropriate helicopter (s) for your day.


Q. Do we get black & white photos?

A. The majority of your photos will be in colour. Your Alpine Image Co. photographer will use their best judgement to decide which images will look best in black & white.


Q. How do we get to Wanaka?

A. From Queenstown it is a short drive (approximately 1 hour) to Wanaka or you can catch one of the scheduled shuttles. Regular coach services to and from the main centres arrive and depart daily. Find more information here.



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
