It was perfect weather for Belinda and Campbell’s wedding day, except for a bit of wind. Belinda had arranged for a helicopter flight as a surprise for Campbell and we were worried it might not happen. I’d never been in a chopper before so I was pretty excited, and a bit scared to be honest.
After the ceremony, despite the wind, the choppers appeared on the horizon. Game on! In a second, Campbell turned into a little boy, grinning from ear to ear.
Soaring over Lake Wanaka was such a surreal and overwhelming experience; I can’t really put it into words. We landed on top the mountains. Literally, we dropped on a spot only just big enough for us to land. We jumped out and were greeted by one pretty amazing view. It was like being inside an oil painting…
Belinda and Campbell shared their first moment alone, as a married couple, standing on top of a mountain above their home town of Wanaka, holding each other, looking into each other’s eyes and surrounded by the most amazing view I have ever seen. The wind was blowing, as it often does, but it didn’t seem to matter at all.
