Spring Destination Heli Wedding
Jeff & Valerie flew down from the North island for a SpringDestination Heli Wedding. They had been engaged for eight years and thought they better get married before their children do!
The weather was moody and wet with breaks. We picked them up from The Sofitel and made our way up the mountain. Our pick up spot for the helicopter today was the heli pad on Coronet Peak. It was a wet flight across to Coromandel peak in Wanaka. We managed to find a sheltered spot among the tussock. A small break in the weather was perfectly timed for the wedding ceremony.
The bride wore a warm fur coat to keep warm during the ceremony. The weather allowed for a few more photos before heading back to Queenstown for more photos. By the time they landed the clouds had lifted and we could see blue skies.
Back in Queenstown, we headed further up Coronet peak for some more elevated shots, followed by some more down by the lakefront.
