Kellie says of the couples day…


Jason and Maree met in December, and Jason knew he had met the most beautiful woman and immediately wanted to be a part of her life, so in February they got engaged.

Jason’s had an upcoming birthday so Maree had planned a mini break to Queenstown to celebrate.

Whilst planning this trip they decided it would be the perfect time and place to commit the rest of their lives to each other with a whirlwind wedding.

So with a weeks planning time, Jason and Maree took the classic Earnslaw boat across the beautiful Lake Wakatipu to wed on a rainy day in front of an epic wood burning fire keeping them warm.

They finished their day with a helicopter trip to the top of Cecil Peak, a mountain in the Wakatipu Basin that  offers unparalelled views over the quaint town of Queenstown below on the southern island of New Zealand.

Being together without the pomp and ceremony, without the drama was more important to them and their relationship than a long engagement so why wait around, life can be far too short.

Their romantic and atmospheric whirlwind wedding was spectacular in a much more personal way, and wow, will you look at that view, what a way to start married life.
