From secluded beaches and exotic rainforests to geothermal wonderlands and snow-capped mountains, New Zealand's landscapes are as romantic as they are varied.
New Zealand’s compact size lets you experience diverse experiences in stunning landscapes every day. Take a helicopter ride through the fiords and soak in natural hot springs. Hike to cascading waterfalls or cycle through vineyards. Kayak to beautiful island sanctuaries and dine alfresco under the stars. Seclusion or excitement, relaxation or adventure – you can tailor a great value honeymoon package that’s 100% unique to you.
Stay in romantic, boutique hotels or honeymoon lodges, share indulgent spa treatments, taste exceptional food and wine, or retire to the privacy of your honeymoon suite. Or if renting a campervan for a roadtrip is more your speed, there are lots of options for you, too. Anything is possible on your New Zealand honeymoon.
Maybe you see yourselves having a heli-wedding on a mountain top, a traditional service in a tiny lakeside chapel or a bare-foot ceremony on a vast surf beach. With a landscape as varied as ours, almost anything is possible. A recent law change has also made same-sex marriage legal - so, the opportunities for a spectacular New Zealand wedding are truly endless. Blessing ceremonies are also available for honeymooning couples who want a special celebration.
Arranging all the details doesn’t have to be a headache. There are professional wedding organisers who can take care of everything - just show up with your passports and wedding rings. Most wedding venues also have organisers who can help you to make arrangements.
To get married in New Zealand you need to hold a valid marriage licence. Find out how to apply for a marriage licence by visiting the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages website www.dia.govt.nz
