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…

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.
