Marisca & Jamie | Wanaka Elopement Wedding | Wanaka Wedding Planner

As the months start cooling down again, it seems crazy to think that we are heading into the middle of the year! How do the seasons go by so fast? Autumn and winter are some of our favourite times of year. The mountains look spectacular all year round, but there’s just an extra bit of beauty in the winter time. Sun kissed, snow tipped and frosty!

Marisca & Jamie live in the North Island but wanted to get married somewhere that their husky dogs could enjoy the day with them! So, a domestic wedding and a road trip south was planned. Marisca is a very talented tattoo artist (lots of her talent here on her IG page) and Jamie is a rope access technician (think hanging off tall buildings in a harness!), so they’re a pretty interesting team. It was quite fitting then that they add a bit of adventure to their wedding too. That came in the form of an exciting helicopter trip into the mountains, just as the sun set.

Huge congratulations guys! We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day for you both 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
