Amit and Sarah’s Wedding in Mount Aspiring National Park.

Amit and Sarah chose this ceremony site near Mount Aspiring as it is a very sentimental place to them. They first spent time in the area during a campervan holiday and have visited every year since. The further they drove into the Matuktuki valley, the more they were drawn to the mountains, rivers and glaciers. The area reminded Amit of the mountains of Nepal where he grew up and triggers something particularly special for him, in fact it was in this area that Amit, in a dream, foresaw that he would be married, which gave him the idea to propose to Sarah. Rain or shine this was the spot they knew they would exchange their vows.

Amit and Sarah also held a beautiful traditional Nepalese blessing ceremony the previous day. Here is day two of their wedding celebrations, which had just as much love and also the addition of a wedding cake eating cow, a helicopter ride, some friendly Keas, snow and a lovely reception at Wanaka’s Bistro Gentil. (you will notice the big cow lick mark in the cake! we still ate it though)

How do you plan a Destination Wedding and still make it personal and intimate? When you are travelling to your wedding, you really have to find, arrange and hire absolutely everything you are dreaming of in the destination itself.  You aren’t getting ready at home surrounded by family things and there is definitely a limit on what you can DIY and bring with you. Luckily those con’s have some serious pro’s! Like when you find wonderful people who are on your wavelength, and you get to bring all your friends and family to a truly stunning location and really make some memories. Aja and Andrew nailed it all. I am not even sure how they did it all so well from Australia, but the extra effort to make it personal definitely shone though. Their lovely morning wedding was relaxed, special, intimate, stunning, stylish and a whole lot of fun.

I asked Aja if she had any advice for other couples planning a wedding? she said, “Your wedding should be an extension of your personalities. Take inspiration from other weddings, blogs or Pinterest but make it unique; think about what you love, who you are and what you want to remember for years to come.

Even if if means walking down the aisle to a Cat Stevens song (me and my dad’s song).”
