Sean + Jeanette // Manaaki Mai Elopment Christchurch

Location: Manaaki Mai

Photography: Jemma Mitchell Photography Celebrant: Andrea Dahl

Sean and Jeanette were just the loveliest couple and it was such a pleasure to capture this day for them. Having their friends and family overseas, they decided not to put off getting married, and decided to elope with the blessing on their families. They wanted a video that was not over-the-top cinematic, rather captured and shared the day with everyone.

They decided to elope at Manaaki Mai, a peaceful and tranquil retreat just 45 minutes from Christchurch. It was such a beautiful location with plenty of character and gorgeous views to fit. The day was stress-free, relaxed and they couldn't have asked for better weather. Everyone that gets married there get a plant a tree, which is such a cool idea! Imagine coming back to stay at the B&B 30 years later, and seeing the tree you planted when getting married
