Rach & Samuel’s Queenstown Wedding

Rach and Samuel had a beautiful Queenstown wedding at a special place on the banks of the Kawarau River.

After the ceremony they travelled out to Cargo Brewery in Queenstown where they had wood fired pizza and canapes with the family. Everyone then left and drove down to Rach’s parents family farm in Five Rivers, Otago.

Sammy and Rach took a helicopter down to the farm and stopped on the way for photos with their good friend Rich Bayley Photography. At the farm, with all of their friends & family, they enjoyed a huge grazing platter, spritz aperol, bubbles and Sammy’s home-brewed beer and cider throughout the afternoon. They had a DJ and saxophonist playing house music. Dinner was slow cooked meats from the farm and salads, followed by speeches and then dancing.

“It truly was the best day of my life. The vibe was so chill and it was such a beautifully warm summers night for a wedding in the garden.”
– Rach
