Laura & Joel | Mount Roy Elopement | Wanaka Wedding Planning

Laura & Joel are pretty much living the dream!! Laura is from Cumbria, in the UK (not a million miles away from where I’m from actually!!) and Joel is a sun/sea loving Australian…… but after they met in a ski town town in the French Alps they spent the next few years traveling the world together, living in Europe and Canada, before settling by the ocean on the east coast of Australia. Laura works in the medical profession as a specialized Sonographer by day, and a yoga instructor by night (how amazing is she?!!!) and Joel is a carpenter who spends as much time as he can in the surf…. so their everyday lives are pretty interesting to say the least! You’ve only got to spend a few moments with these guys to see how much they adore each other… and they didn’t stop smiling from the moment that helicopter arrived until the sun set on beautiful Lake Wanaka. It really was just GORGEOUS. Anyway… enough from me… I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story 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
