Anna & Dan’s Queenstown NZ Cecil Peak Heli-Wedding Elopement

May 7, 2021

A Wedding Worship Service in almost-heaven

Anna and Dan wanted a Christian Wedding Ceremony on the top of a mountain, celebrating with their close friends. The two got ready at separate accommodations positioned across the lake from each other.

The guys were really quick in getting ready – as they do. The girls on the other hand were pampered by Yanisa (Charm Beauty) and Amanda (Escova Makeup). The flowers arrived just as they were done getting ready – it was absolutely perfect for Anna.

The first look happened at The Ledge on Cecil Peak, with Anna and her bridesmaids arriving in style on the luxury EC130 helicopter, and Pastor Jono Lum from Life Church Auckland officiated the ceremony. We loved that Pastor Jono made the ceremony very unique and personalised for Anna and Dan, unlike many Christian weddings we’ve done in the past that were simply read from pre-made templates.

The guys brought along a guitar to sing hymns of worship during the ceremony – It was all quite surreal, and we’re glad to have captured all of this in photos and videos!
