New Zealand Adventure Wedding

 

When I caught the travel bug, one of the first countries I spent an extended amount of time in was in Southern New Zealand.  For a thrill seeker like me, it was the mecca of adventure.

 

Specifically, in the South Island, I found to be a place that I could do a skydive at sunrise, be bungee jumping into a canyon before lunch, ice climbing or heli-skiing on a glacier in the afternoon, and then choose to either go on a hike or wine tasting at night.  It had everything, I ever wished for.  Throw in some cool caves, waterfalls, pristine beaches, unforgettable lush hikes, and landscapes that went on for days and I was in the epitome of happiness!

When you think dynamic landscape and endless adventure options for your destination wedding adventures, I sure hope New Zealand is on that list!

 

One of my obsessions to it has always been that the landscape is so diverse no matter the season.  This fun fact makes New Zealand an ideal destination wedding adventure location!  Can you imagine yourself getting married in New Zealand in one of the following locations?

  • Abel Tasman

  • Mount Aspiring National Park Wedding
  • Milford Sound
  • Lake Taupo
  • Lake Matheson
  • Mount Ngauruhoe

Adventure Weddings: What are they?

So, I get this question a lot, “What is an adventure wedding?”

My Answer: A once in a lifetime experience with all you love on one of the most unforgettable days of your life!  Combining a unique intimate adventure, one the most exciting days of your life, in the midst of a new country and culture!

It just makes sense!  Your next question: Who should consider an adventure wedding?

  • You’re a couple who is not traditional or follows “the token rules.”
  • You have an unquenchable thirst for curiosity and discovering!
  • You are seekers of experiences, not things.
  • You yearn for the unusual, exhilarating experiences and love to laugh.
  • Your Fearless and live life Limitless.
  • You’re not afraid to get your wedding attire dirty.
  • You can handle 12+ hours of wedding day escapades!
  • You Love and appreciate distinctive wedding portraits in dynamic landscapes –You want to be wedding day ART!

 

It’s been my personal and professional mission to change the way the world thinks about and looks at destination weddings.  Our world is transitioning to being seekers of experiences and not things. So weddings are no longer in hometowns and destination weddings no longer equal an all-inclusive resort. Destination weddings, now equal a 16 hour full day adventures in unforgettable locations!

We want every couple who plans a destination wedding or elopement to consider an obscure offbeat location for their wedding day.  This may mean your renting super jeeps for your 40+ person guest list and spending the day sightseeing AWAY from typical tourist locations, around super-secret waterfalls, rain forests, caves, glacier lagoons or may mean you go on a 2 hour hike, dog sledding, or ice climbing!  It all depends on the adventure level =)

Here at Your Adventure Weddings, we thrive on adventure and love, and have for decades.  We take the time to get to know you as a couple, understand your wedding day goals and adventure level, to create personalized unforgettable adventure wedding options throughout the world. So whether you’re planning to elope or bring 50 of your closest friends and family we are excited to help you wed in places like Patagonia, Iceland, Estonia, Antarctica, Morocco, Madagascar, the list is endless and so are the adventures, so come join us!  We dare you!

I mean… Wouldn’t you want to say “I do” here?

  • Glacier Lagoons
  • Fairy-tale Waterfalls
  • In a magical Desert
  • On a Safari
  • Moss Covered Lava Fields
  • Basalt rocks protruding from the Sea
