A Wanaka Winter Wedding at the Lookout Lodge

Wanaka in winter is a magical place. Snow capped mountains and crisp, fine winter days can make for an extraordinary wedding day.

The Lookout Lodge is an ideal venue for winter weddings with an outdoor fireplace and complete central heating inside.  The sprawling lawn captures the majestic mountains and is drenched with sunlight until about 4:30 PM.

Enjoy mulled wine and champagne by the outside fire! If the weather is wet, we can host the ceremony inside where it warm and romantically lit with fairy lights and candles. There is an option to use our marquee with heaters as well.

Bring your family and come for a week of skiing and a winter wedding everyone will remember!

Jess & Aarons Winter Wedding

Jessica + Aaron | Wanaka NZ Wedding Highlights Film

I’ve been so excited to share this one.Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Jess & Aaron travelled all the way from Townsville to get married in beautiful Wanaka New Zealand. While their wedding was small and intimate; there was big love to share all around. The atmosphere was electric and I can honestly say I have never seen so many smiling faces!Despite a freak snowstorm, Myself and Carly (their very talented photographer), kicked off the festivities the day before the wedding, where we had the privilege of spending time with both Jess & Aaron, a few snowballs and some very cute Llama’s!The Wedding day followed, and it did not disappoint! NZ put on a show for us with beautiful clear skies, stunning snow-capped mountains and a ceremony location to die for. This was all complimented by an adventure in a helicopter to visit Roy’s Peak – it’s not every day you get to video a couple on a glacier!However, despite all of the beauty, adventure and incredible vendors on the day, the most amazing aspect of this wedding was witnessing how madly in love Jess & Aaron are.One of the groomsmen summed it up beautifully with a quote from Dr Seuss: "We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."Jess & Aaron, it was an absolute pleasure being a part of your special day, Congratulations to you both!Photographer carly tia photographyVenue The Lookout LodgeMakeup EVE Makeup ArtistryStyling & Florals Jess & LolaHelicopter Wanaka HelicoptersDress Made with Love - Unique Bridal CollectionCake White Rabbit Cakes NZCatering Fully PittedFlowers The Green Room Flower CompanyHair - Sharp HairOfficiant - Pastor Wayne Ward
