Of course these are merely options available for you to bring your day together. If you already have your heart set on specific vendors to bring your dreamy wedding day vision to life, that is absolutely fine! I'm happy to work alongside anyone that is going to help you elevate your elopement experience!
No matter where you get married in Australia or New Zealand, you are marrying on land that was once occupied by Indigenous peoples whose spiritual connection and wellbeing are inextricably linked to that land. As a proud Indigenous woman myself (Ngapuhi / Ngati Pikiao), I'm honoured to be able to offer my clients the opportunity to begin their ceremony with an Acknowledgement of Country and a Māori Karakia (incantation) to deepen our connection with each other and the land we stand on. This allows us to weave our profound interconnectedness throughout your gorgeous imagery, while also nurturing the spiritual energy of your wedding experience further enabling your marriage to be supported and held through intention.
If you're looking to elope to Australia or New Zealand, and want to ensure that you're being respectful to the First Peoples of the land, get in touch today!
yes! i want a respectful ceremony
We can’t always explain the connections in our lives and how they
came to be. But we can feel them. An invisible thread that’s woven
through every lived experience to bring us to this exact moment.
A bright spark or rip-roaring fire, it’s hard to describe the love
that’s brought you two together. Through the highs and the lows,
all that matters is that you’re together.Wherever you are, they’ll
always be your home.
Whether we’re on a breathtaking mountain top or exploring a quiet hideaway spot, your elopement photos will honour the magnitude of your love. Shutting out the noise, stopping time, your memories are safe with me.

Ready to get the ball rolling? Head to the Contact Form to get in touch, and to book in your Consult Call. We'll have a little brainstorm about your dream elopement and get the ideas flowing. If you’re feeling a tad overwhelmed and have no idea where to start (it happens!), don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for! You can ask me anything and everything - think of it as a casual chat between friends...no presh whatsoever.
I'll send over your custom package proposal (that's right, all of my packages are custom curated for each of my couples - no standard set of coverage here!). Once you’re ready to book and say "I Do" to me too, simply select your package, pay your retainer and sign your contract.
Voila! You're officially in the books and I absolutely can’t wait to celebrate alongside you!
BACK TO STEPS
Once you've selected your package, and you're officially locked in the books, our extensive planning process begins! I will send you out a series of Questionnaires that allows me to get to know you and your partner a lot deeper. Based on your answers, I'm able to get a feel for what moves you. What type of experiences you hold closest to your heart. What type of locations make you feel so deeply connected and alive in this human experience.
And from all of that, I am able to help you craft a day that you are truly excited for. A day that speaks to the heart, and resonates deeply. A day that you can look back on with an immense pride, knowing that every part of your wedding experience is an exact reflection of the two of you and the love you share.
Uniquely yours. Forever and ever.
BACK TO STEPS
Breathe in, breathe out, and be fully present so you can truly immerse yourselves in this loved-up joyride. Whether you're screaming your love from a rooftop, or a cliff overlooking the ocean. Relax in to your experience knowing that this is the day you hand-built TOGETHER.
No stone left unturned, to find you the most epic locations in the most epic landscapes. A stress-free Elopement or Intimate Ceremony that feels like YOU, honours your love, and pays respects to the Traditional Custodians. A day created to immerse yourself in deeper connection with your loved ones, with each other, and with the natural elements that surround your space.
An experience full of heart, intention, and purpose.

Nikita takes so much care and time to get to know you that it feels like you're planning your wedding with a best friend who has known you a lifetime. She constantly reminds you to soak it all in as it comes because like everyone says it goes by so quickly. I honestly couldn't imagine having anyone else help us create a more magical day. Not many people can look back at their wedding and say they wouldn't change a thing but we can and I truly believe that is thanks to Nikitas dedication to make our dream come true. Nikita made the experience so enjoyable that I'm going to miss talking to her all the time.
I can't even begin to explain how amazing Nikita is...
I have never felt so empowered and confident...
from how Nikita guided us through these moments. She asked us to close our eyes and feel the wairua (spirit) of those whanau (family) who have passed on as well of the whose land we stand on and I felt this massive wave of mana (pride) come through me. We channelled that energy in to our photos. It was more than photos for us it was history in the making. These moments captured are for our babies to look on and know that our journey of cultural discovery was for them!
We both felt a bit emotional seeing the photos
You captured each and every special moment in the most amazing pictures on our wedding day. And no less importantly, you are the most wonderful, kind, and fun person - we are so lucky to have had you!
Not only did she make everything relaxed and easy, she got on beautifully with my family and made everyone feel happy and relaxed, and made my now husband and I feel so special. Aside from all of that, the photos were incredible. Like, really, really incredible!
Nikita was the most INCREDIBLE presence to have on the day...
She made me beautiful, she made me laugh, she calmed me down and left us with photos of our special day that I will always cherish. When it came to photography, she was everywhere, but nowhere to be seen. When I look at our photos I wonder how she managed to be in two places at once. Nikita even took the time to send a sneak preview of some photos on the day so when our incredible day came to an end we already had some photos to look back on! I would highly recommend her for hair, makeup and photography!
I will never forget the energy that Nikita brought to our special day...
Nikita joined us in Queenstown for our wedding on Coromandel Peak at about five minutes notice and was fabulous! We were lucky enough to book a multi-day package and had two sessions with Nikita prior to our wedding day. Our whole family loved Nikita so much, and she just has a way of making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed and that truly shows in all of our photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I look back at our photos at least once a week and fall in love with them a little more each time.
Nikita is an amazing make up artist and photographer!
She completely understood our vibe for the day, and that we didn’t want posed, perfect pics. But rather candid, natural, and bursting with love – which is a true reflection of Paul and I. The wedding day arrived and we instantly vibed so well. Paul and I felt so comfortable being ourselves and Nikita captured every minute of our day exactly as we had dreamt it would be done. Her skill is second to none and her personality makes every person feel so at ease. It was like hanging out with a mate who happens to be ridiculously talented with a camera. I could not recommend Nikita highly enough if I tried. I only wish we could get married again just so she could take more photos.
Nikita is truly the most incredible photographer!
Did I mention I can be your makeup artist and hairstylist too?! Yep, I’m also a professional HMUA so I can help you look like the best version of you, and make sure you’re always camera-ready!

I am an advocate for indigenous cultural tourism, and hope that through the lens of my storytelling, I can encourage you to consider travelling in an intentional way that honours the First Peoples of the lands that you are travelling on or to -- for they are the Custodians of the land, that will ensure this Earth is gently handed down to the next generations.
