Elopement is a noun, replete with so many love filled verbs it oozes warm fuzzies!
This being New Zealand, we get a heap of elopement requests all year round from all over the globe! Mostly, however, these inquiries are for some stunning mountain vista or other, nestled in the gorgeous Southern Alps in the South Island.
Now, being from the North Island, we thought we would step into our creative and educational elopement shoes and show off some of our own bejeweled landscapes and vistas that are so often overlooked by the Google search ‘elopement NZ’.
We also brought together a plethora of insanely talented creative vendors who totally rock what they do up here in these higher latitudes and who come together to make any wedding day extra special
We set out to create and shoot a modern and fun elopement styled shoot in a place which would be stunning all year round and showcase properly one of the most beautiful and magical spots in the North Island. The foothills of Mount Doom and Ruapehu – Tongariro National Park!
This modern elopement highlights the fun, the love, the nervous energy and pure passion synonymous with any elopement.
It highlights modernity and at the same time the classic power of love and joy of a wedding day in the truly stunning North Island of New Zealand.
