het­her you’re look­ing for an in­ti­mate cer­e­mony or an ex­clu­sive func­tion with a large cir­cle of friends and fam­ily, there are many stun­ning set­tings to choose from in New Zealand. You can shout your love from the moun­tain tops or clink your glasses at one of the coun­try’s finest vine­yards - and then take off for the hon­ey­moon of your dreams. Add to this the coun­try’s lux­ury lodges, gourmet food and ex­otic wines, and you have a match made in heaven. When you plan your wed­ding in New Zealand, make sure you con­sider these Top 10 spots to get mar­ried: 1. Tie the knot at the Church of the Good Shep­herd at Lake Tekapo, one of the world’s most idyl­lic churches. All you can see for miles is mag­nif­i­cent moun­tain scenery, the per­fect back­drop for your spe­cial day. The church was built in 1935 for the pi­o­neer fam­i­lies of the Macken­zie district and is still used as a place of wor­ship. 2. Welling­ton and wed­dings are a per­fect pair. Make your vows on the stun­ning marae at Te Papa, New Zealand’s na­tional mu­seum; or choose the glo­ri­ous Gothic-re­vival sur­round­ings of Old St Paul’s in the his­toric sub­urb of Thorn­don. 3. In­vite Mount Cook to be your wit­ness - a “heli-wed­ding” will take you to the top of the Tas­man Glacier, where you can ex­change your vows sur­rounded by stun­ning snow-capped peaks. 4. Get mar­ried on a lux­ury cata­ma­ran - sail from bay to bay on ro­man­tic Lake Ro­toiti in Ro­torua or char­ter the Ipiriri and cruise the sparkling waters of the sub-trop­i­cal Bay of Is­lands. 5. Toast your fu­ture at one of the pic­turesque vine­yards in Hawke’s Bay or on Wai­heke Is­land - sam­pling tasty lo­cal vin­tages is an ex­pe­ri­ence in it­self and gives your cel­e­bra­tion a spe­cial fla­vor. 6. Spoil your­selves and your guests with an ex­clu­sive wed­ding at one of New 7. Take pam­per­ing to the next level and say “I do” in a mud bath at Hell’s Gate in Ro­torua - the geo­ther­mal won­ders of New Zealand are a plea­sure for body and soul, and cre­ate a unique set­ting for your cer­e­mony. 8. Rise to the oc­ca­sion with a hot air bal­loon wed­ding and let the un­fold­ing land­scape of the Can­ter­bury plains and the rugged moun­tain ranges of Queen­stown take your breath away. 9. Cel­e­brate your wed­ding at a world­class golf course such as Kauri Cliffs or Cape Kid­nap­pers; walk­ing on lush green grass, soak up the scenery and in­dulge in pure lux­ury. 10. Mark the start of your lives as a mar­ried cou­ple in the ro­man­tic Marl­bor­ough Sounds as you over­look an­cient sunken river val­leys, se­cluded bays and sandy beaches.
