Martina & Rob | Wanaka Heli-Wedding

Martina & Rob met in 2004 celebrating a New Years Eve in Sydney whilst they were backpacking around Australia. Fast forward a decade and they are still living the dream in Australia, having made the very sensible decision to make it their home! They had been engaged for a couple of years, but couldn’t seem to settle on a venue, or even a location for the big day. Martina is Irish, and Rob is English, and now that they have so many friends in Australia, it was becoming a bit tricky to organise a wedding across so many countries. So the wedding plans were somewhat on hold… until they stumbled upon the Boutique Weddings New Zealand website… and the decision was made within a week!!! According to Martina… this was exactly what they had both been looking for. A Wanaka Elopement Wedding it was :)

It was such a pleasure to be a part of this, incredibly special Wanaka elopement wedding. Yup… it was a windy one (!!) but we love the wildness of the sunset shoot on the mountains and Martina and Rob were absolute legends. Huge smiles from start to finish. What a gorgeous couple 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.
