Queenstown is one of the most beautiful wedding locations in the world.
Not only do New Zealanders from across the country choose to make this picturesque town their
wedding venue of choice, but so do people from around the world.
It’s very easy to see why. With snow-capped mountains, five-star venues and encompassed by the gorgeous Lake Wakatipu, it’s a magical spot.
It’s strikingly beautiful in winter, and even more so in summer. However, Queenstown is not only perfect for wedding ceremonies
and receptions, but for your Queenstown wedding photography as well.

Queenstown photography locations

Even though Queenstown is more often than not a hive of activity, sometimes you just find those perfect Queenstown wedding photography locations that provide a serene, quiet and unique environment.
