Sarah + George / Chapel by the Lake / Southern Alps Wedding

Sarah and George’s Chapel by the Lake wedding was filled with golden colours on a crisp and calm autumn day. They had an intimate ceremony with a few loved ones, followed by cake cutting and canapes at the adjacent art gallery.

After a stroll around the grounds for a photo and film shoot, we flew with Heliworks for a bit of mountain scenery. Sarah and George are Otago dairy farmers so one thing they particularly wanted was a rural feel for their mountain shoot. When the original destination of Mt Nicholas was covered in fog we took them to another favourite haunt. High up in the Southern Alps with 360 degrees of unobstructed mountain and river views. Complete with the sun low in the sky and little wispy clouds it was damn near perfect. Quite fitting for a couple who are perfect for each other.
