THE VERY CENTER OF YOUR HEART IS WHERE LIFE BEGINS.

Rumi

In every edition of Silk & Honey we're going to take you somewhere special. Somewhere just a little bit secret. Somewhere usually only the locals know.

Why? because we want you to have choices. We want your wedding day, event, or romantic getaway to be incredible, memorable, and absolutely magical, and we're lucky to live in one of the world's most beautiful places. 

There are so many amazing locations in the South Island of New Zealand. The mighty Southern Alps, pristine lakes and rivers, golden fields of rock and tussock - the opportunities for unique locations are endless.

So we're sharing - but there's a catch...you've got to keep it secret! ; ) 

Horse riding Paradise Glenorchy New Zealand Wedding

Until recent decades the mystically beautiful land at the top of Lake Wakatipu was accessible only via boat or precarious pack tracks. When the road, a gravel dirt road still deemed dangerous to the average traveller, opened in 1962, people were lured to Glenorchy and the stunning vales that surround it. 

One of these spectacular valleys sidles the Dart River deep into the heart of Mt Aspiring National Park is called Paradise - and it really is. 

We're so excited to share these incredible images of Paradise and wish to thank Rich Bayley, Photographer, and Stacey from Colour me Happy in Queenstown for this beautiful capture.

Sometimes an opportunity presents itself and you just have to run with it, believe in it, and hope others will too. This stunning styled shoot came together so perfectly, I'm calling it Serendipity at Selinda.
