Te Anau // Fiordland Lodge & Doubtful Sound Wedding

Denise and Adrian could not have planned their wedding for a more perfect day. The sun was shining in Te Anau for their day a Fiordland Lodge (May can be so touch & go with weather). With themselves and guests travelling from Wellington & overseas it was the perfect spot to relax and explore for the weekend.

Adrian & his groomsmen spent the morning hanging out and getting ready in the log cabins. Then eagerly awaited guests to welcome them through the big wooden doors of the lodge for the ceremony.

Denise got ready with her bridesmaids and family upstairs in the conference room. They had awesome views and everyone was so excited to be there. After getting into her gorgeous gown, she did a first look with her Mum before heading downstairs to get married.

The ceremony looked fabulous with floral towers framing the view. Walking down the aisle to a violin song, Denise looked radiant and Adrian shed a few tears along with many guests. They both spoke so deeply from the heart and it was a beautiful ceremony.

After congratulations & family photos they were whisked away into the mountains for some epic views. Flying into Doubtful Sound is an experience all in itself, but to do it during golden hour on a clear day was something else.

We spent about 20 mins enjoying the view and getting some photos with the epic scenery before flying back to meet the bridal party for photos before dinner.

The reception was set up with strings of fairy lights, custom cocktails, gift for guests and the white flowers wall & photobooth. As a surprise for guests, after entering Denise & Adrian sang a song together. It was magical.

Over the night they had wonderful speeches from loved ones and good food. As if we had scheduled it, the Aroura Australis paid a visit and we have one of the best light shows in over a decade. Guests could see colours to the naked eye and we had to whip outside and get a few photos!

Then Denise went and changed into a dancing gown and… cut her hair off!!!! Like we hadn’t had enough surprises for the day! She looked stunning and the pair rocked the dance floor before the whole rest of the wedding joined in. They danced the night away had an absolute ball.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Alcance 🥂
