Wedding Ceremonies

Have you ever dreamed of a secluded wedding? Imagine stepping out of a helicopter and walking down an isle that will only ever be yours. With Christchurch Helicopters you can design the wedding of your dreams. Either take your love to new heights in a snowy mountaintop ceremony, or solidify your ‘forever’ on your very own private beach. The options are endless. For a beautiful, unique wedding ceremony any time of the year, let us help you create a day like no other.


Sweeping your significant other away for a stunning mountain peak picnic may be the perfect location to indulge in romance as you pop both ‘the question’ and the cork of a delicious bottle of champagne in celebration. If staying closer to home is what you desire, soar away to a closer location, such as stunning the Port Hills, overlooking the picturesque landscape of rolling hills.

Wedding Photos

Wedding photographs forever mark your special day, so why not make them that bit more special? Seek out remote and picturesque backdrops only accessible by helicopter. Whether you desire mountain top magic or beachfront bliss, live in ongoing awe of the beauty and artwork that can be created in a photograph when a stunning couple and breath-taking location unite.

Grand Entrances

There’s no better way to blow away your guests. If you are seeking an entrance to remember then let us deliver you in style. Christchurch Helicopters will cater to a party of any size. By kicking off your most special day with an entrance as grand as this, the feeling of excitement is sure to follow you down the aisle.
