"What an incredible experience, a dream made reality by the Nomad team. They dealt with having the wedding a day early due to weather conditions without even the smallest hitch. The lead up to the wedding and the day were all stress free for us because they took care of everything so well. James was easy to work with and responsive to our requests. We're so grateful to the team for helping us make such magical memories" - Andy & Sharda

"Obviously you want your wedding to be memorable but also enjoyable with a side of an experience. James and his team blew us away with how smooth everything went, the photos and videos were amazing and told us the exact date that the weather would be perfect which it was. My Wife and I are not traditional with weddings and James and his crew made our elopement align with our interests. Thank you team and the Wife thanks you for the extra snacks on the day ;)" - Mick & Gemma

"James and his team made our entire wedding experience absolutely perfect, from start to finish. Working with him to set up our helicopter elopement was simple, and probably the easiest choice we could have made. He took care of us at every step, coordinated all the details, and we literally just had to show up with our clothes on, ready to have fun and get married. On the day, James and Josh were friendly, supportive, and we genuinely enjoyed getting to know them. Since we eloped without anyone in attendance, we spent our most special day with these two incredible people, and we loved every minute. We cannot express how stunning and epic the photos are, nor the uniqueness of our experience when we tell others. James and Josh took us to several locations to do photos with interesting and beautiful scenery, they gave direction so well that neither of us felt awkward (as we usually do having our pictures taken), and the outcomes speak for themselves. Aside from the standard photos, James has incredible insight on food options during your stay in New Zealand, as well as direction on awesome things to do. After the wedding, we did most of the things on James’ list, and not one disappointed. We are so fortunate that we decided to work with James and his team, and we will share from the rooftops to anyone who will listen that this was one of the best choices we’ve ever made. THANK you to James and his team, for everything."
