The celebrations of an Australian couple on their honeymoon in New Zealand turned into commiserations when their wedding dress and suit and rings were stolen near the Milford road.

Constable Glen Matheson, of Te Anau, said the honeymooners, from Melbourne, parked their campervan near Knobbs Flat on State Highway 94 and went for a two-hour walk on Saturday between 8am and 10am.

They returned to find the door of their vehicle open and several items to the value of $4000 taken, including her wedding dress, their wedding rings, his wedding suit, a large purple plastic suitcase, a laptop and camera gear.

Matheson said a white stationwagon was seen in the area at the time.

Anyone who had seen any suspicious activity on the Milford road at the weekend should contact Te Anau police or the Crimestoppers phoneline, Matheson said.
