Central Otago has long been a favourite wedding destination in NZ, and it’s not hard to see why! Today’s Queenstown wedding is simply spectacular, from the breathtaking mountain-top images (respect to the bride Janina who managed to look stunning and happy in what would have been freezing temperatures!), to the rustic and insanely romantic reception venue Stoneridge Estate. So many gorgeous details that will no doubt inspire many lovebirds to fly south for their shindig, and all perfectly captured by my newest photography crush, Kate Drennan. Enjoy! xox
