Aotearoa is a romantic paradise. Proposals are no longer a private moment. In today’s social media led world, capturing the moment is as important as the moment itself, making the location of your pending proposal more important than ever. So, no matter if you are planning to propose yourself or just want some ideas to drop hints to your loved one (no harm in that), here are five of the best and most Instagrammable places to propose in New Zealand. All within driving distance of one of our branches.
Perfect for a summer proposal, Cathedral Cove is one of the country’s best-looking beaches and also one of our most recognisable sites. Located in the heart of the Coromandel, proposing here with a backdrop of sun, sea and sand would be a memorable way to pop the question before a celebratory dip into the ocean.
Church of the Good Shepherd
Plenty of people get married at a church, so why not propose at one? We’re going to go out on a limb and say the Church of the Good Shepherd is the most picturesque church in the world. In the Southern Hemisphere at least! Situated on the shores of Lake Takapō, this beautiful building is best enjoyed after sunset with millions of stars lighting the night sky to add an extra sparkle to your memorable moment.
We don’t think it’s too cheesy to propose at a vineyard. Although a cheeseboard would compliment it very well. Get down on one knee in the quaintest corner of New Zealand and pluck up the courage with a few glasses of Blenheim’s signature wine. You’ll be dressed to impress and there will be plenty of people around to help mark the occasion with a photograph or a spontaneous round of applause… if that’s your thing.
With probably the best view in New Zealand, Queenstown Skyline makes for a picture perfect sight. Proposing will make you both feel on top of the world and you’ll have the views to prove it with Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range in the background.
Franz Josef Glacier
Before you put some ice on your soon-to-be fiance’s finger, head to our most famous glacier for an experience like no other. Get up close and personal with a fading natural phenomena and send shivers down the spine of your beloved by taking their hand and asking them to say ‘I do’.
