Sheena & Paulo | Lakeside Elopement | Wanaka Wedding Planning

Sheena & Paulo have the sweetest story…. and they really were the loveliest couple to go along with it!

A lot of couples would struggle with a 1 year long distance relationship… but Sheena & Paulo spent five years(!!!) in different countries….. with Paulo living and working in Auckland whilst Sheena finished her studies back in the Philippines. Paulo has wanted to visit Central Otago since he first arrived in the country seven years ago, but he vowed to himself that he would only go when Sheena was able to come too. How romantic is that!! They both work as nurses in Auckland, and so having time off together is really special for them (and probably doesn’t happen very often!), and so what better way to make the absolute most of their wedding than traveling to Wanaka with their closest family and friends to celebrate their amazing love story…… xxx

I can’t put into words how exceptional Boutique Weddings were at turning a few emails into what was the most spectacular day and I couldn’t recommended them any higher! Our wedding day was perfect, relaxed, stress free and was an epic highlight of our first trip to New Zealand. We got some photos back yesterday and they are EPIC, we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us xx
