Top hats, tattoos and tassels… welcome to Queenstown’s first gypsy wedding!

What happens when a Czech beauty meats a fun loving Aussie in New Zealand? Queenstown’s first gypsy wedding of course!

Brodie and Petra are friends of friends, which isn’t difficult in the Queenstown bubble. I was lucky enough to bump into them just days before they were due to marry at the Queenstown Court House.

After a quick chat we made a new plan for an intimate no-fuss elopement in the Queenstown Gardens. Within a week it was Brodie and Petra’s big day, with their gorgeous daughter Frankie and a handful of close friends.

It’s clear in every look, every word and every action that Brodie and Petra share a deep and enduring love. And I was stunned at the love and support which poured out to this happy couple from their adopted “Queenstown family”.

Everything about this Queenstown gypsy wedding fitted Brodie and Petra perfectly- playful, relaxed and lots of laughs. Thanks for having me as part of your big day- I loved every second of it!
