“All you need is love”

Remember, your Elopement will be different from your friend’s 200+ guest pre-covid wedding.

Couples often wonder if they’ve forgotten to plan something since it feels so simple – it’s because it is!

Here are a few things you will have to organise on your own:

• Marriage License – We can help you
• Your Flights to Queenstown
• Your Accommodation in Queenstown
• Meals
• Outfits
• Honeymoon Activities
• Wedding Rings
• Your Vows to Each Other
• Love & Kindness



Hair & Makeup, Flowers delivered

The Makeup Artist will come to your accommodation in the morning to get you pampered and looking like the best you. About an hour after, the Photographers & Videographers will arrive to start capturing the preparations and the First Look. The Makeup Artist can also help you get into your dress. Go to the bathroom if you have to. There’s no cafes or public bathrooms on the top of the mountain!


Rendezvous with the Celebrant

We will leave about 30mins after the Hair & Makeup is finished, to meet the Celebrant at the bottom of Deer Park Heights, to drive up together.


Deer Park Heights Wedding Ceremony

Soak in the crisp and clean mountain air – It’s time for the big moment we’re been waiting for, your Wedding Ceremony. This usually lasts about 10-15mins, giving us another 45mins on the first mountain-top for epic photos and video shots.


Lakeside Photoshoot

Your day’s not over yet! Queenstown is famous for both its mountains and lakes, and we’ve got to get more photos by Lake Wakatipu – the biggest lake in the South Island. This will take about an hour, and we will drop you off at your accommodation afterwards.

Booking Process

1. Get in Touch

Use the Contact Form below to get in touch with us, and ask us anything you’re wondering about.

We are here to help.

2. Consultation via Video Call

Due Diligence – Is Nomad Weddings the right fit for you?

We will have a Video Consultation to discuss whether the scope of our services can meet your expectations.

3. Planning

Once we know what you are after, we will come draft the Wedding Day Schedule and suggest Wedding Vendors available on your day, who will suit your needs.

At this stage, we will also give you recommendations of local Queenstown Accommodation, Restaurants and Activities.

4. Booking Confirmation

To confirm your booking with us, an Invoice will be issued for a 30% non-refundable deposit, and a Electronic Signatures will be required on the Contact of Service.

The remainder of the balance will be due 7 days before the Wedding.

5. Communication

Once your booking is confirmed, we will send you two Questionnaires through our System:
A Speed Dating Questionnaire and a Wedding Questionnaire.

  • The “Speed Dating Questionnaire” is for the Celebrant to write up a personalised Wedding Ceremony Script for you. Beyond this, it is still important for the Celebrant to actually get to know you on a more personal level, so they will contact you approximately 3-6 weeks before the wedding day. At Post-COVID Queenstown booking volumes, this is the timing to be expected.
  • The “Wedding Questionnaire” is about general info regarding your contact numbers, accommodation details, preferences on online privacy, etc.
  • Our Florist (Optional) will be in touch with you approximately 4 weeks before the wedding, to request for your floral preferences and to order the flowers from the growers in Christchurch.
  • Hair & Makeup (Optional) Communication in Queenstown will depend on the vendor – there may not be any communication prior to the wedding day, but we can help to relay any requests to the Hair/Makeup artists.
  • You will receive a series of preparation tip emails from our system. These are automated emails, but you are always welcome to reach out to us directly regarding any questions or requests.

6. Pre-Wedding Checks

2 Weeks before the Wedding, we will check with all of our booked vendors to make sure that they are ready for your wedding, and that they have all the details needed.

At this stage, you will be contacted again to schedule a Video Call with us, to ensure that any loose ends are tied.

7. The Weather Call

2 Days before the Wedding, we will make the weather call – whether to keep the original schedule, or to move the wedding back by a day or two.

For a Ground Level Wedding at Deer Park Heights, we can still go ahead with the wedding on windy days but if there is severe rain, we may have to reschedule.

We Cross-Reference between 7 Forecasts, including Met Service, YR, BBC Weather, AccuWeather,, MetVuw and
