We recently made our international debut with a wedding in the far corner of the world… the little slice of paradise that is Queenstown, New Zealand.
It was an intimate little wedding with an extremely modest guest list made up of just 40 people.. including Sarita & Anshum.
Katy, an American girl out on her big overseas adventure ended up in New Zealand where she met Sheel, a kiwi at heart but 3/4th Indian and 1/4th Irish by descent. They hit it off quickly and in search of greener pastures decided to settle in Australia (metaphorically speaking, for pastures can hardly get greener than in NZ 😉 ) The small little wedding party thus consisted of friends and family from the US, India, New Zealand, Australia & even Ireland. How’s that for a global Wedding?
The wedding although small was elaborately well planned and even afforded them a 2 hour window between the wedding celebrations exclusively for a photo-shoot. What made it even more exciting was the plan… to fly to Queenstown’s highest peak in a chopper and shoot there! And thats what they did. Thanks to the local photographer contracted through the event planners, the amazing Miles Holden, things went smoothly as a hot knife through butter. Plus the weather seemed eager to co-operate and although there was some rain forecast for the day, when the chopper landed at the peak, it was as clear, sunny and beautiful a day as could be. Anshum was the one who flew in the back of the chopper with the couple themselves, and admits that the 1 hour spent at the peak was probably the most exciting and fulfilling hour of his career as a photographer so far. We’ll let the images say the rest.
