What a wonderful way to start a week. Today i had the pleasure of marrying a delightful couple from New York (together with their son Navio).They were married at Seven Mile reserve, near Queenstown first thing this morning . This couple had less than 2 days in Queenstown ! They fell in love with Queenstown on arrival Saturday, and decided they wanted to be married here. Thanks to the help of the Queenstown district court registrar and two delightful witnesses we were able to apply for and receive a licence and have them legally married all before 10.15 am on a Monday morning. Just in perfect time to catch their flight out at Midday.
You could not find three happier people. Thank you Queenstown for making the seemingly impossible possible and making two people very very happy.
Congratulations Rick and Nicole Lopez - Come back and see us again. More Magic awaits you here xx
