b&w ceremony moment with bride and groom and fathers

Libby & Tom / Wanaka Wedding

Libby & Tom traveled over from Australia to marry at Wanaka’s Rippon Vineyard, with their closest family and friends. They were the warmest, loveliest group of people who welcomed me like I was part of the group. After their ceremony, Libby & Tom surprised everyone when a helicopter arrived to whisk them away for a mountaintop photoshoot with views of Mt Aspiring & the Southern Alps, before landing at Horseshoe Bend for their intimate reception & dinner.
