Lisa & Mark's Wanaka Elopement Wedding

Lisa & Mark were in touch with me at the beginning of the year to start planning their gorgeous Winter elopement wedding in Wanaka. Having snow was the big dream for the day.

As everything turned out, they had everything they wanted. A perfect weather day with oodles of snow - how much better could it get! After hair & make-up created by Deirdre from Road to Beauty and completed by stunning flowers & button holes by Tracey from Crimson Wedding Flowers, we headed into the epic snowy landscape. The intimate ceremony was conducted by Liz Maluschnig up on the Pisa Range. Logan - Lisa's son - had a very important part to play during the ceremony and after the 'I dos' had been said much fun was had playing in the snow.

Later on we headed out to Lake Hawea for more photos and to enjoy some time there in the beautiful late afternoon light. Altogether it was the most wonderful and fun afternoon celebrating Lisa & Mark’s big love for each other.
