Arriving at Cabot Lodge, couples will be welcomed into the Premier Suite with flowers, a bottle of New Zealand bubbles and a special gift from our team. Couples can enjoy a private spa experience, soaking in an outdoor tub overlooking the mountains, before evening drinks and canapés, and a set-menu evening meal. Couples can then retire to bed for some much needed rest before their special day. 

Waking up, couples will enjoy a cooked breakfast, before heading to the Lodge spa retreat for some 'glam' time. Once ready, couples will meet with their photographer and celebrant and head out to the front lawn to be whisked over the fiords by private helicopter to say 'I do'. Our photographer and pilot will act as legal witnesses to the special ceremony and the Lodge will pack a picnic blanket and bubbles in the helicopter to pop following the vows. 

Couples will then enjoy a delectable cheese board and bubbles on their return to the Lodge, before an evening of private dining with New Zealand wine pairings. 

Spending the final day at leisure at the Lodge, couples can bask in married life with a walk on the stunning Kepler Track, a cycle and picnic along the Lake2Lake Cycle Trail, a cocktail cruise on Lake Te Anau, or a scenic drive along the stunning Milford Road. 

On departure, couples can enjoy a late check-out to savour every moment of this idyllic location. Couples will then receive beautifully edited, high resolution images in an online gallery to share their special day with friends and family.
