Sia & Alex | Queenstown Elopement Wedding | Queenstown Wedding Planner

On an unusually hazy summers evening, we travelled high into the mountains for Sia & Alex’s adventure elopement. In Belarus (where they are from) the landscape is wildly different to the landscape here in NZ (fewer wolves here!). It really was an honour to help them experience something completely different.

It was fairly windy on the day, and we flew to a sheltered spot on the south eastern side of Cecil Peak. Sia and Alex had added a fun touch to their ceremony by signing a bottle of delicious pinot noir. They pledged to open it in 10 years time, giving themselves a perfect excuse to reminise about their wedding day!

After the flight we snuck in a few photos down by the lakeside. Luckily for us, the haze created a really unique kind of light as the sun set. We rarely see this kind of light in Central Otago, so it was a perfect little added bonus for these two newlyweds!

Huge thanks to this small but fab team…

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
