Are you dreaming of getting married on a mountain top surrounded by nature and the most Instagram-worthy views imaginable? Then a heli wedding in New Zealand could make your dreams come true.
Heli weddings are ideal for romantic souls who love nature and adventure. All dressed up in your bridal outfits, you board a helicopter together in Queenstown and are flown to a picturesque site like The Remarkables, Bayonet Peak or Lake Isobel. There you join hands and exchange wedding vows and rings while your photographer takes some of the most amazing images you've ever seen.
Perfect for intimate weddings or elopements, heli weddings are a luxury experience that comes with hair and make-up, flowers, an officiant, cake and champagne. Imagine a winter wonderland ceremony with stunning mountain and glacier views or a sweet spring wedding with native NZ flowers in bloom. The mountains still have snow at the beginning of spring, so that is one of the most popular seasons for Heli weddings, along with summer, which is hard to resist.
In the Land of the Long White Cloud, Mother Nature delivers magic every season and the backdrop to your wedding photos is guaranteed to be exquisite. Plus, you are all alone in this peaceful setting, except for some wildlife that might be flying overhead.
Dramatic landscape imagery of couples standing on ledges overlooking snow-covered mountains and crystal-blue lakes is what attracts many couples to the idea of having a Heli wedding. The exhilaration of a new experience wrapped up in a wedding day is alluring. Many couples describe their breathtaking wedding in the clouds as one of their most memorable times ever.
There are all kinds of packages, so you can include guests and fly to several locations on the day. So why not tie the knot in one beautiful place then fly somewhere else for bridal photos as newlyweds?
Or, if you already have plans to get married in a church or traditional venue, you could still book a heli package for wedding photos before or after your big day. It's a modern version of the trash the dress trend but instead of being in the water you are on top of the world!
