Joyce & Nil | Wanaka Station Park | Lake Wanaka | Wanaka Wedding Planning

We loved the story of how Joyce & Nil came to hold their marriage blessing here in New Zealand……

Joyce & Nil are already legally married, and are holding their traditional Chinese wedding next year in Nil’s hometown of Chongqing. Whilst planning a holiday to New Zealand they came across our website, and after seeing the photos, made an impulse decision to hold a blessing ceremony here in Wanaka. Joyce had always dreamed of a ‘warm and elegant’ wedding so this seemed like the perfect setting and time to make it a reality! Once Joyce’s parent’s heard what their daughter was organising….. they wanted to join in the fun too. Before long they had booked tickets to travel to New Zealand along with the couple, making it a real family holiday!

There was something truly magical about Joyce & Nil’s wedding day. Their intimate blessing ceremony was held in Wanaka Station Park, with Joyce’s parent’s as witnesses, and their location photos taken against the stormy skies of Lake Wanaka…. Enjoy 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.
