Weddings in New Zealand

New Zealand offers the opportunity to celebrate your special day in many different ways. Choose a traditional church setting or a scenic location such as a mountain top, beach or garden for your New Zealand wedding. No matter where you go, New Zealand's amazing landscape will provide a memorable setting for your special day.

Couples residing outside of, but marrying within New Zealand, are required by law to lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage. To apply for a marriage certificate in New Zealand see the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages Web site. In New Zealand, a marriage may only be entered into by opposite sex couples who are not already married or the marriage has been dissolved, and they are at least 16 years of age with parental consent, or 18 years old without parental consent.

Alternatively, a civil union can be entered into by same sex or heterosexual couples who are not already married or their marriage has been dissolved, and are at least 16 years of age with parental consent, or 18 years old without parental consent. A civil union formalises a relationship between two people, so it is recognised by New Zealand law.

Wedding Planners

Use a wedding planner for your New Zealand wedding and take the hassle and stress out of planning your dream day. A great range of wedding companies specialise in the organisation of weddings in New Zealand.

The wedding planners responsibility is to ensure every detail goes as planned on your magical day - enabling you to enjoy the day you dreamed about. If required, they will organise everything from clothing to licenses on the day of your New Zealand wedding and they are totally flexible to your needs. No matter what your wish for; a traditional or totally unique, small and intimate or big and luxurious, a wedding planner can help make your day successful.

Honeymoon

Celebrate your commitment by finding a beautiful place to be alone together for your honeymoon in New Zealand. New Zealand offers an abundance of perfect honeymoon destinations, no matter what your style, relaxed, adventure or scenic.
