Surrounded by family, friends and copious amounts of love and laughter, these two gorgous people tied the knot on top of the world!  They chose beautiful Queenstown, Aotearoa New Zealand to join hearts and families from both Aotearoa New Zealand and Sydney, Australia.  As the sun cast magnificent, oblique golden light on them they declared their love, long time friendship and commitment to each other.   After many months of communication it was like meeting old friends. Such an honour to share in their special day.  Their love was palpable and so well matched - you could feel it in the air.  Check out Russell & Daniel's wedding.

Megan and Chris

I met Megan and Chris when Megan was bridesmaid at a previous wedding I photographed.  In fact this wedding was a reunion of a grand group of people who had been bridesmaids and groomsmen for each other.  Born and bred Kiwis. Megan and Chris returned home from Western Australia for their stunning wedding. It was an international gathering of people from all over Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.  The autumn colours and golden light along with a dusting of snow on the surrounding mountains framed a perfect day.  This shot was taken on the mountains behind Glendhu Station overlooking Glendhu Bay and Lake Wanaka just as the last rays of light set over the mountains and the clouds gathered for night.  A very special quiet moment together after a beautiful ceremony and before the party celebrations began.  

Thanks for choosing me to be your photographer. Absolutely loved every minute of it. All best wishes for a wonderful life together.  Check out Megan & Chris's wedding. 

Location: Glendhu Station, and surrounding mountains and lake of Wanaka, Aotearoa New Zealand
