A SPEC­TAC­U­LAR MOUN­TAIN-TOPPED LO­CA­TION IN NEW ZEALAND SET THE SCENE FOR A VERY SPE­CIAL CEL­E­BRA­TION

Danielle and Matthew al­ways knew they wanted to be mar­ried by the breath­tak­ing land­scape of the South Is­land of New Zealand. On the morn­ing of their wed­ding, it was per­fect and sunny with a back­drop of snow-capped moun­tains – the best of both worlds! Af­ter their cer­e­mony, the cou­ple took a he­li­copter ride to the top of Mount Roy to en­joy the spec­tac­u­lar views. Soon it was on to the re­cep­tion where the new­ly­weds shared their first dance to Lana Del Rey’s

‘Young & Beau­ti­ful’, start­ing with an in­ti­mate slow waltz be­fore switch­ing to a jive Gatsby-in­spired ver­sion!
