Weddings with Wanaka Helicopters
Wanaka truly is the most magical part of the world to celebrate your special occasion.
Mountain top ceremonies to charming proposals, add a little bit of high altitude magic to your special day by including Wanaka Helicopters in your plans. Take a breather from the stress and fuss of your special day by letting us show you the beauty of the place we call home.
Whisking you away into the mountains, our exclusive landing spots provide the most incredible backdrop for your photos. You can choose to have your wedding ceremony in the mountains or you may choose to escape for a private moment together for some wedding photographs.
We provide a range of packages ranging from our most popular location – the spectacular Coromandel Peak on the Mt Roy Range, right through to landing on an isolated Glacier for ‘winter wonderland’ photos.
So let us show you the beauty that lies ahead for lifelong memories.
