Blanket Bay | K+I

Surprising guests during a group photo, in flew 4 helicopters ready to transport all 40 guests up the beautiful mountains in Queenstown for champagne celebrations that no one will forget anytime soon.

Kristen and Iain’s Blanket Bay love story was fit for royalty. Kristen’s Steven Khalil wedding dress left her brides-babes speechless at their first look, and Iian’s jaw dropped as she came walking into the room with her proud father by her side.

After meeting at a bar in London, this red headed bombshell radio presenter stole Iain’s heart from the very first night.
Iian proposed in the breathtaking surrounds of Santorini, Greece and the pair decided an adventure filled 3 day weekend party was their perfect idea to a ‘wedding’
Kristen stunned everyone in her figure hugging custom Steven Khalil gown.
Kristen walked down the aisle walked down the aisle to Coldplay’s Sky Full of Stars played by a string quartet, it was a beautiful moment.
Kristen and Iain chose the wow factor of luxury lodge Blanket Bay in Glenorchy as the perfect spot to say i do with their nearest and dearest.
They surprised their guests during a group photo with the ‘taxi’s’ to another location (as if this one wasn’t good enough!) taking ALL 40 guests up the Alps in Glenorchy for a surprise champagne sundowner.

Not only is @katedrennanphotography insanely talented (what you do with light is incredible) but she is a wonderful woman with a big heart and an epic work ethic.
