1: Te Anau
This beautiful lakeside town is the gateway to Fiordland. With mountains surrounding the lake and vibrant native forest.
With an endless amount of jaw dropping locations that are within a 30 - minute helicopter flight, you will be totally spoilt for choice. If you are lucky, a couple of cheeky kea's will drop in during your shoot!
No matter what the season, Queenstown has the perfect hidden little spot to say your vows.
Whether you want to be up a mountain, down by the turquoise waters of river or in the middle of fresh fluffy snow at the top of a peak.
3: The Catlins
The Catlins are one of Southlands best kept secrets. In just a few hours you can chase waterfalls, explore caves and watch the waves crash from high up above rocky cliffs.
4: Mount Cook
The size and scale of Mt Cook National Park means you can be completely alone to say your vows. With dramatic mountains and glacial lakes – there is something for everyone.
No matter what the season, Lake Tekapo is always a startlingly rich turquoise colour. Snow - capped mountains surround the lake and at night billions of stars twinkle overhead.
If lupins are your thing – these fields come alive in mid Nov – Mid Dec. A sea of pastel colour!
6 - Omarama
If you are looking for somewhere totally different – Omarama might just be the ticket. The Clay Cliffs make you feel like you are in America and after a day adventuring, I can totally recommend soaking in the hot tubs overlooking the lake.
7 - Milford Sound
If you are looking for somewhere moody, dramatic and breathtaking no matter what the season.
With mountains, 100’s of waterfalls and lush green forest – it will be a real adventure!
