If this elopement had a soundtrack, it’d be a very emotional rendition of You Take My Breath Away mixed with the Game of Thrones theme tune. Jess and Sam’s beautiful wedding is a genuine breath-taker, as they got married at Glendhu Bay Lookout, which looks over the Mount Aspiring National Park. Fittingly, I am now aspiring to get to this national park, stat. Then, they took a helicopter ride to Fog Peak and, well, the photos speak for themselves.
“We’ve never been fans of large, traditional style weddings so we’ve always wanted to do something a little different from the norm,” Jess says. “We also fell in love with New Zealand and the beautiful landscapes when we did a road trip around the country in 2017. After considering different types of weddings to have at home in Australia with friends and family, we decided that it wasn’t ‘us’, and that we had to do what made us happy. We both wholeheartedly agreed that we wanted to have an intimate wedding and get married amongst the stunning scenery in NZ!”
