AROHA PACKAGES

   Elopement packages in Queenstown, New Zealand
In the Māori language, the word aroha has a number of different meanings. It can be used to describe love and affection, as well as empathy and compassion. Aroha can also be used to express gratitude or appreciation. In many ways, the word encapsulates the very essence of love in several contexts, but for Queenstown Elopements, it conveys a sense of warmth and connection – “Aroha mai, aroha atu,” or “love received, love returned.”

 

Our aptly named Aroha packages are designed to capture all the special moments of your Queenstown elopement, plus a little something extra to show your partner just how much you care. After all, what can be more romantic than a once-in-a-lifetime event in one of the most beautiful places on earth?

      The Remarkables

      Elopements are often thought of as a spur-of-the-moment decision, but we at QTE believe that it should be a well-planned and carefully considered event, perhaps as straightforward as how The Remarkables mountain range runs directly from north to south. Our spectacular ceremony location for this package is at the top of the range with unobstructed 360-degree views of Queenstown and beyond.

      Mt Crichton

      For many couples, eloping means having a more intimate and personal ceremony minus the stress and expenses of a traditional wedding. For others, it’s an adventurous affair that involves taking a heli flight to Mt Crichton. Regardless of preferences, it could be doubly memorable especially when it’s happening in a dream destination like Queenstown. Never miss the emotions of the day in a natural and artistic way, be sure to do your photoshoot atop this peak.

      Cecil Peak

      Planning a heli flight photography session at Cecil Peak after your elopement ceremony? Here are some tips. First, be sure you’re not scared of heights or dramatic photographs! Give yourself plenty of time to explore the area and let your photographer find the perfect spot for your best angles. Next, take advantage of the natural light. Finally, don’t forget to keep warm during the shoot especially when holding your event in winter!
