Queenstown Elopement Weddings by Sunshine Weddings

Unlike traditional wedding planners we are also photographers and film-makers. We work closely with you as a team to create and then capture unforgettable wedding experiences. For us it’s about forming relationships and capturing you simply being yourselves.

Our couples are independent and adventurous with big dreams of epic scenery and memorable moments.
Our Queenstown wedding packages are tailored for intimate couple-only weddings or weddings with a couple of loved ones along for the ride.
They include all the guidance, care and help you’ll need for the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

“Once deciding on New Zealand as our destination, it essentially came down to “where do Melissa and Scott from Sunshine Weddings travel?” Since most of our family and friends wouldn’t be able to attend, we agreed that having a beautiful video and photos of our wedding day to share was a priority. We came across Melissa and Scott’s films in researching elopement style weddings and fell absolutely in love with their work.”

The photos are AMAZING! Thank you and Scott so much, we are beyond thrilled with them. To be honest, we were both so exhausted at the end of the day that we forgot most of the smaller details but looking through the photos, it really brings back all the special little moments and we’re so excited to go through them and choose our favourites to print out.

Thanks also for all your time and hard work to make our day as special as possible. It really was everything we hoped for and we can’t thank you enough for understanding our vision (via email!) and turning it into such a perfect day.

“The film and pictures are absolutely stunning! We REALLY could not have picked a better company to capture everything! We both got choked up watching it and we are seriously on our toes waiting to show our family! I really just can’t put into words how great all of your work is! Thank you so much! We really never would have thought that we would LOVE every single photo (given we are both kind of self conscious, if you couldn’t tell! haha!) But we really are SO excited to show everyone!”

Thanks again Melissa. We really did have a fabulous day and we are so glad we chose you guys. You made everything so easy and Scott was really brilliant, especially dealing with two people who hate having their picture taken!!

“Thank you for making our day so easy – neither of us a good in front of a camera and you both made it bearable, which is no easy task. Thank you for being such an awesome couple and fun to deal with too!! It must be so hard dealing with the likes of us (camera shy & distracted)”
“Talent and lack of ego don’t often go hand in hand, but you both have that unique combination. You made the process so easy and the final result was far better that we had dreamed! We class ourselves as movie stars now and love showing off the video to whoever will watch. We enjoyed spending time with you both, with camera or not, and we hope our paths cross again.”

Thank you so much. We had such a wonderful day!!! You two are an amazing team and really made our whole trip beyond memorable!!!

“Your work is what captures the emotional element to the day and is what leaves people really understanding the relationship between us. You guys did such a wonderful job. It somehow feels like you’ve known us for years and have conveyed something that’s been really difficult to convey to family and friends – the reason we eloped is because we were simply ready to start our lives together.”
“…the photos are just fantastic and we’re completely in love with the film–a million thanks for so beautifully capturing such a special day for us! Absolutely stunning!! It was such a pleasure to work with you both throughout this whole experience. You are truly exceptional at what you do!”

Thank you for playing a huge part in making our perfect day what it was. We really couldn’t be more grateful. From the week after we got engaged, you took our very vague description of ‘mountainous’ and kept us in the loop and excited, for what felt like simultaneously the longest and quickest year of our lives, to our big day – which was stress free and great fun. We are so glad we picked you to capture it for us. It is memories both us and our families will treasure forever. You guys are awesome and we can’t wait to catch up with you again in the future.
