A Beautiful Day to Elope on a Mountain Top, Coronet Peak Queenstown


Zoey & Ben

Love Story:

When Zoey and Ben first met, they were working for the same company in the UK.  They spent a lot of their spare time travelling to different parts of the world together before they made their life-changing move to New Zealand. When they arrived they were so excited, they bought and converted a campervan. Together they adore travelling around New Zealand, discovering the beautiful and diverse landscapes.

On the Day:

The day began for Zoey and Ben in their gorgeous cottage, overlooking the vineyard at Stoneridge Estate. Zoey was having a great time being pampered upstairs as she got ready in her feather-adorned white robe, grooving to Shania Twain. Ben was getting ready downstairs enjoying a cheese platter, before stepping out onto the lawn in anticipation of their first look. Zoey, the beautiful bride came down the stairs and tapped Ben on the shoulder, he was absolutely blown away by how beautiful she looked.

The weather on the day turned out to be spectacular, which delighted Zoey and Ben as they had been worried about the rainy forecast.

The adventure began, driving to Coronet Peak where we met their celebrant Sarah Noble and the ceremony took place here, with the Remarkables behind them. We then made our way to the airport, to get a Helicopter to the top of the Remarkables and they were able to look across to the spot where they had just been married. We stayed for a little while taking lots of stunning photos including some of Zoey and Ben having their first dance on the mountain top, to one of their favourite songs.
