Michelle & James’s sense of adventure and love of travel, was something that they had to bring into their wedding day! They decided to combine both travel (coming to New Zealand all the way from the UK) and their love of exciting things (helicopters!) into a day that they will certainly never forget. New Zealand was a country that they had always wanted to come to, and out of curiosity and a few hours on google, they stumbled upon our website. From there, the seed was planted of a Wanaka Wedding… and we couldn’t be happier with how it all worked out for them. Michelle even said that it was the only place that could top their engagement, where James had made her do a skydive over the Swiss Alps in order to get her ring!!!
Their wedding day began at the stunning Buchanan Lodge where they got ready, relaxed with family and friends who had travelled over with them, and had a wee pre-wedding drink to calm the nerves! From the lodge, they travelled to a beautiful and secluded lakeside spot for their intimate wedding ceremony with their closest family and friends as witnesses. After the congratulations, well deserved bubbles, and some lakeside photos… it was off to the chopper!!! Stormy skies and a few gusts of wind made for the perfect combination of drama for their helicopter shoot, and for this couple and their adventurous spirits, it couldn’t have been any better!
Michelle & James, we wish you all the very best for, what we know, is going to be a very exciting future together! The fact that you’ve kicked it off by diving with sharks (eeeek!!!)… well… that says it all really! xxx
