12 MILE BEND BY LAKE WAKATIPU

For elopements with intimate ceremonies where you don’t feel you need an actual venue then there are so many beautiful locations for photos around the lake and in nearby fields. There are a few boats and ferry like the TSS Earslaw and Southern Discoveries which will also take you up and down Lake Wakatipu to explore different views and angles of Queenstown the surrounds.

Mt NICHOLAS STATION

Mt Nicholas Station Wedding venue Queenstown New Zealand

Remote and rustic, allow Stacey at Colour Me Happy Weddings to transform the barn into a bohemian festival of love! With about a 40minute ferry ride out of town over the gorgeous Lake Wakatipu  Southern Discoveries will take you to this working station.  Find more photos of an elopement shoot I did there in the winter here.
