Beach Wedding in New Zealand

New Zealand Beach Weddings

Dreaming of a Beach Wedding!!! Wanting to get away from it all and just have a quiet intimate day with the two of you or maybe with just a couple of friends.

How about New Zealand?  New Zealand is a great place for destination weddings, as couples have found over the years. There are so many options available and there are stunning beaches with some of them being remote that you can only get their via air.

Each beach in the South Island New Zealand has special offerings. It is just up to you both to decide which stunning location is to be the place for you to exchange your wedding vows. There is no wrong place to have your wedding in New Zealand. They are all perfect options!

Akaroa Wedding

Akaroa is the “french” part of New Zealand with street names that beckon images of Paris. Akaroa is a quaint resort town outside of Christchurch. This lovely hamlet offers unique opportunities that other areas of New Zealand does not.

Akaroa is rich with ocean wild life and you can actually swim with the Dolphins during your stay. The harbor cruises are offered in Akaroa and they take you around the harbor to inlets and amazing sights. You can ride the Little River Rail Trail. There are walk abouts through the village, boutiques to shop and so much beautiful scenery to explore it will take your breath away. This is the town with the French flair right in New Zealand.

Sumner Beach

Sumner is a beautiful seaside town that is a suburb of Christchurch. It offers pristine beaches that are simply amazing. The close proximity to Christchurch makes it the ideal setting for people that want access to city life.

This beach offers amazing cliff overhangs that dot the beach. The town is quaint and scenic. Getting married on the beach under the cliffs is a lovely place to be married. Though this area was hard hit by the earthquakes it has still managed to hold on to it pristine beauty. Enjoy wildlife, sunny days and access to a quaint village. A town where dreams are made!

Raupo Bay

Getting you to this remote little beach is via helicopter.  The excitement of being up in the air and flying over rugged rocky cliffs and the Pacific Ocean is just the beginning of your special day. Though only a 15-minute flight from Christchurch city via air, the feeling is one of being far from the crowds… in your own little world.  This wedding venue is a must for couples loving the sea but wanting the privacy so many beaches cannot offer.

New Brighton Beach

New Brighton is a surfers paradise. Many a surfer is spotted amongst the waves at New Brighton but that is not the only reason that people travel to New Brighton. Looking in both directions the beach goes for miles with white sands. This suburb of Christchurch is a hip area that can help you to have your dream wedding. There is plenty to see and do, you can start your honeymoon immediately after the services. You can spend the day lazing around the museum, checking out the cafes or simply walking along the beach!

West Coast Beach Wedding

The wild West Coast of New Zealand is a romantic, magical place to say your vows. Soft white sand, cave-like formations and miles of ocean make the most serene and intimate place for your dream wedding!


The best part about a New Zealand destination beach wedding is that you can choose what you would like to do! You can do as much or as little as you want. When you use a wedding planner to make your New Zealand dream wedding a reality you are left with nothing but time on how to decide you want to spend your holiday.
