Epic Punjabi Elopement in New Zealand

New Zealand Elopement

Sirjana is from India, Ben is from New Zealand — both are professional photographers and wanted a beautiful + intimate place to say yes to each other for the rest of their lives. Traveling from the North to South island with photographer Pablo Laguia, the trip took a few days until they reached Mount Cook on the South Island.

To honor Sijana’s heritage + culture, the two wore traditional Punjabi outfits. The photographer, Pablo, tells us: Both of them were wearing a traditional Punjabi outfits, they were very excited while we were walking until we got to the mountain. As a traditional Punjabi wedding, they washed each other’s feet in the lake before the ceremony… That was a very beautiful moment, as a wedding photographer I’ve never had the opportunity to see something so special, it was magical!
