Additional Info

Our Heli Elopement package is perfect for couples wanting the quintessential Queenstown experience – marrying on top of our stunning Remarkable mountain range, The Ledge at Cecil Peak, or the stunning Bayonet Peak – all with expansive views of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains beyond. This package is perfect for those looking to elope with a bit more spirit and arrive home with a fantastic story and jaw-dropping photos to share with friends and family.

After your unforgettable ceremony, you will head off with your photographer to capture some additional on-ground scenic location photos to provide you with a beautiful range of images for your wedding day! End the day with a delicious gourmet meal in one of our top-rated fine dining restaurants, where private rooms are available, to cap off your Simply Perfect wedding!

Our packages offer flexibility to ensure that your wedding day is tailored specifically to you – there is a range of options to choose from for your flowers, celebrant, menu and more! All the essentials are included in this all-inclusive elopement package, however we do offer the following upgrades if you are looking to make your wedding day extra special:

  • Upgrade to ‘Off the beaten track’ heli landing locations ( e.g. Coromandel Peak, Mt Vanguard, Lochnagar, Earnslaw Valley + Ridge and more)
  • Or add a second heli landing on to the wedding package to replace the on-ground location photos
  • Luxury wedding car transportation
  • Additional floral and/or décor details for your ceremony (e.g. wedding arch, hair flowers)
  • Additional photography time as requested
  • Wedding videography packages available

Be sure to choose your wedding date wisely – Would you like to have your ceremony in the snow? If so, are you comfortable spending a significant period of time outside and in colder temperatures? Perhaps you would prefer to be in the warm sunshine with clear views across the Lakes district? Keep in mind that Queenstown is in the Southern Hemisphere, meaning that our winter months are June – August and summer months are December – March.
