You want to feel special, pampered and you want to experience something new and exciting. You want a New Zealand wedding.

Stunning settings

New Zealand scenery is major eye candy. You'll get a unique and beautiful backdrop for your wedding from breathtaking beaches to wild, rugged mountains. From Wellington, you can get a magical helicopter ride to find amazing views across to Kapiti Island, as depicted in the image above.

The very best food and wine

Fresh, delicious and world class. We are proud of our produce in New Zealand and if the way to your lover's heart is through their stomach, a New Zealand wedding will bring you closer together than ever. Treat yourselves to the unbelievably fresh seafood and be spoilt by our sought after lamb and beef, not to mention the lovingly crafted specialty cheeses and award winning wines.

Adventurous spirit

New Zealand is the perfect place to get closer to your partner through sharing unforgettable experiences. Go skydiving with all that stunning coastal scenery laid out below you. Try hot air ballooning as the sun rises over the vineyards. Take a heli-trip high into the snow capped mountains. Or find one of the many deserted beaches and take a walk at dusk, just the two of you and the sunset streaking across the water.
