Eric & Dominique — Tekapo Wedding Film

When Dominique contacted us about her & Eric coming all the way from Colorado to Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand to get married, we got quite excited. They decided to scrap the original Colorado wedding plans and elope in Tekapo, New Zealand, with their closest family and friends in tow. This wedding was full of adventure, from their stunning lakeside accomodation to the historic Tekapo church, the mountain tops above Tasman Glacier to the Hermitage Hotel at the base of Mt Cook (Aoraki). It was an absolute honour to be a part of Eric & Dominique’s day.

Heres what Eric & Dominique had to say : “We hired Lovelight based on their astounding portfolio of work and particular style. When you hire someone across the world without meeting them you hope they are great to work with too. We weren’t just pleased, we were blown away by their professional and personal approach to work and the end result of our perfect wedding video.

We worked with Mark and Craig for our beautiful wedding in Tekapo. We met with them before and described better what kind of focus we wanted our video to have. At times I didn’t even notice they were there and yet they still perfectly got all of the important shots. Our wedding day was such a blur I was a little bummed we didn’t take time to get drone shots over the church and lake but then the guys were like, oh we already did that early this morning before we came to film you guys. What All Stars! (And those shots turned out awesome giving our video a bit of an epic feel). And to boot communication after the wedding has been excellent and our video was delivered earlier than promised. I honestly can’t say enough good things about the Lovelight team.”
