Bree and Jace's Stunning Wanaka Winter Elopement

Bree & Jace decided to have an elopement Winter wedding in Wanaka at the end of July. They both loved the dramatic landscape of Wanaka and especially wanted photos by the lake with snow-capped mountains.

Since they are based in Victoria in Western Australia, they used The Wedding Company to plan all of their wedding.

We changed their original plan of having their ceremony at gorgeous Lochnagar because the weather was coming in and we couldn’t fly. Instead, their wedding ceremony was held at Waterfall Creek followed by photos in Wanaka Station Park. The rain held off until we’d finished the photos and definitely created a moody dramatic look for the day!

The next day we flew up to Lochnagar for location photos followed later on by Glendhu Bay and enjoyed pristine weather! Just stunning, as I’m sure you’ll agree from the images!
