When Kelly & Luke first met on a Contiki tour in the USA 5 years ago…. it seemed like everyone around them knew that they had something pretty unique. Whilst they were debating whether they could make long distance work between NZ and Australia, the tour guide and bus driver commented that they had never seen a relationship like it in the thousands of couples they had seen over the years, and convinved them to give it a shot. Well Mr Tour Guide and Mr Bus Driver….. hats off to you…. you were 100% right!
Shortly after they returned from the USA, Luke proposed to Kelly and moved to NZ to be with her (naawwww) and they have been engaged ever since, pondering how to organise the logistics of a Trans-Tasman wedding inbetween traveling some more around North America, moving to Australia, and generally living life to the fullest together. They never originally planned on a New Zealand elopement, but it was only when they booked a holiday to Wanaka that they decided they didn’t want to wait/ponder any longer, and that they would get married whilst they were here. Kelly’s parents were planning on joining them anyway, and so all that was needed were Luke’s parents and their Wanaka Wedding would be complete!
So with everything in place for the heli-wedding adventure of a lifetime… let the fun/laughter/bubbles with these beautiful people begin….
