Are you looking for a location
for your wedding that is out of this world?
Somewhere that is spectacular,
primeval or just plain beautiful?
...welcome to the West Coast.
Are you looking for something
different, something with heart and soul,
somewhere unique on this beautiful planet
...you have found it.
Would you like a ceremony that expresses
your love and commitment in a meaningful way?
...great! You are in the right place.
So, why the West Coast of New Zealand
as a venue for your wedding?
The West Coast of the South
is a unique environment, stretching along the
Western edge of the South Island of New Zealand.
The coastline is in sharp contrast
with the snow-capped Southern Alps.
It is a primeval landscape with
rain forests, wetlands, lakes, sculptural lime
stone formations and 600k of coastline.
There are five pristine National Parks,
Kahurangi, Paparoa, Authurs Pass, Westland and Mount
Aspiring as well as South Westland, which includes a
UNESCO World Heritage Park.
There are two glaciers, Fox and Franz
Josef. From Karamea at the top, to Jackson's Bay in
the South, there are many untouched beaches, waterfalls,
wide river valleys, bush walks, mountain tops, lakes
and rain forests. Go to www.westcoast.org.nz
for more information on the West Coast.
