This is how we help you elope in New Zealand

The Lost in Love experience

Everything we do is specifically designed to give you peace of mind before, during and after this once-in-a-lifetime experience.















“We chose Lost in Love because they offered a package that included everything we needed, which made our lives easier, especially since we planned our wedding from Canada. 

We rarely ever got photos taken together so I was nervous that we would be awkward, but Kate was amazing at managing us within the incredible landscapes. It was a perfect day thanks to the team and I wouldn’t change a single thing!”

- Erika & Ross


"Eloping in Queenstown with the Lost in Love Team was the best decision we have made, our day was so magical and I am so grateful for all of their help! 

We cannot recommend Kate and the Lost in Love team enough! They planned our elopement from Australia, and when we eloped in May 2024 everything was organized so perfectly. We felt taken care of every step of the way, and when it came to our big day we were so stress free as they had looked after all of the details for us.

- Brianna & Jaydon




Elopements with Lost in Love

Do you also offer videography?

Heck yes! Simply add on a wedding film to capture your BIG DAY adventures on film (well, technically). Videography with one of our top-notch videographers starts at $2,700

What if it rains the day of our elopement?

In case you didn’t know… moody and overcast is a tooootal vibe! And clouds add real drama to your photos. But if it is absolutely bucketing down and the weather really does prevent us from doing what we had planned, we’re more than happy to reschedule. We’re used to the elements and last-minute changes so consider yourself in good hands!

What’s the deal with locking in and paying for our elopement?

A neat 30% non-refundable deposit upfront locks in your AH-MAzing day in our schedule. The rest is due 30 days before your elopement date.

How does it all come together?

Your elopement with us couldn’t be more straightforward. Once you reach out to us with your preferred date, you lock in your preferred date and package with a 30% deposit. Once that’s out of the way we’ll nut out all the details for your big day on a Zoom call. Still not quite sure? Jump over here for even more details.

Can you also take care of our wedding album?

Absolutely! We get a thrill out of every fine art wedding album we design. And it means your stunning snaps don’t get lost in the Cloud or on your dusty USB. Take your pick from leather or linen for $1,200.

Is transport included with my elopement?

Each Lost in Love elopement includes transport for you (the couple) and up to two other guests. We’ll collect you from your hotel or Airbnb in a comfortable air-conditioned car so you never have to stress.

What if we’d love to include evening activities such as dinner, speeches and the first dance in our elopement?

For a “reception”-style experience, we recommend opting for the Bonanza so you get 6 hours of photography and additional planning assistance from us with everything that’s required to make things happen.

What if we need to reschedule due to Covid?

The pandemic seems here to stay for a while. That’s why we’re happy to reschedule your elopement once at no additional cost due to lockdowns, travel restrictions or COVID illness. Should you decide to cancel your plans altogether, you’ll forfeit your booking fee

When will we receive our images?

Expect your edited images in a shiny online gallery ready for you to download, print and share within 6-8 weeks after your BIG DAY. 3 sneak peeks will touch down in your inbox within 72 hours after your wedding. Because we know the suspense is REAL.

Why does it take a few weeks for us to receive our photos?

As soon as your photographer has captured your elopement on camera, they will hand over the SD cards to our expert in-house editor to work their magic. Editing involves picking the BEST photos for the final gallery and post-processing them so they REALLY shine. That includes any colour corrections, brightness optimisation and contrast adjustments in line our signature editing style. The photos you’ll receive show you off in your natural beauty. But if you happen to wake up with a spot on your chin, we’ll totally touch it up.

Can we get our hands on the remaining unedited shots?

Nope, sorry. So much of the magic that makes up an image happens in the digital equivalent of the darkroom (known as Lightroom) and it’s also how we’ll create images that match our signature style. Funnily enough, it’s our legal obligation to deliver images representative of the work you see on our website. And unedited images look rubbish anyway!

How far in advance can we book?

We take bookings up to 12 months in advance. So as soon as you know your preferred wedding date (or a rough idea of time frame), get in touch so you don’t miss out.

What if we want to bring guests?

That’s A-okay. We’ll suggest locations that work a treat with guests. If you consider flying to your location, please keep in mind that we can accommodate up to 30 guests across 4 machines. Packages that work best with guests are our Adventure and Bonanza packages because you have time for group shots and extra fun.

What if we are awkward in front of the camera? 

You wouldn’t be the first couple to consider yourself just that. Far from it! It's completely natural to be a little apprehensive the snaps, but usually you’ll forget we’re there shortly after we get started. Our video call prior to your BIG DAY also helps to break the ice and set expectations. By the time you exchange your vows we’ll be Insta buddies and can’t wait to hang out. Still got your doubts?

I see you have several photographers. Can I choose my preferred one?

All our photographers shoot with our signature style in mind. But if you really resonate with a particular superstar photographer on our team, we’ll try to match you where possible.

We have no idea which package to go for but we LOVE your work. Where do we go from here?

Kate can give you some handy pointers to work out the best package for you and how to make your elopement extra special. If you’re worried someone else might take your spot, why not lock in the Quickie package to get started and upgrade down the track if you change your mind?


How many photos will we receive?

You’re looking at 80+ edited images conveniently delivered to an online gallery ready for you to print, download and share them with your best buddies.

How long will we have?

Can we add more than one helicopter flight to our Quickie package?

Mmmhhh… between check in and driving time, the Quickie works best with one heli location. If you want to soak up multiple heli spots, we recommend upgrading to the Adventure package.
