Marisca & Jamie | Wanaka Elopement Wedding | Lookout Lodge

When a couple arrives at your studio with a rooftop tent on their truck and two beautiful fur baby huskies, you know you’re in for a good one! Add to that two of the coolest jobs in the world and you’re knocking it out of the park. Marisca is an incredibly talented tattoo artist (check out her work here), and Jamie is a rope access technician (a jack of all trades dangling off a rope in very high and dangerous places!).

Hailing from Ohaupo, they already feel lucky to call New Zealand home. They had always planned on an elopement wedding in their backyard, long before Covid changed the landscape. So, as winter rolled around and things in NZ fairly stable, their wedding was full steam ahead.

We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect winters day. Blue skies, fresh snow and a beautiful mix of people celebrating of of life’s best bits… love.
