Amy + Alexis’ Lakefront Wedding | Wanaka


A French-New Zealand wedding…. set in one of the most beautiful places on earth…. amazing styling, and above all, a couple so very, very much in love.

When my beautiful cousin Amy got engaged to her French beau Alexis last year, I knew I had to shoot the wedding. Not only because she’s family, but because I knew that it would be a wedding like no other. Amy’s love of flowers and bohemian style, and Alexis’ French class and wit, had me dreaming about it all year – with imaginings of the dress, the vibe, and of course the photos!

Turns out my dreams were pretty on par.

Amy and Alexis were married on the edge of Lake Wanaka, under sunny skies and a beautiful warm breeze.

After the wedding, we all headed up the Motutapu Valley for photos and as the sun went down over the mountains, we got the beautiful golden light that I’m in love with and had been wishing all year for.

Amy and Alexis, you’re amazing. Thanks for being so fun to hang out with and welcome to the family Alexis! Hope to see you in France for round two!


Love, Bella
