Proof that a wedding in Wanaka is perfect for anyone contemplating a wedding in New Zealand is the fact that Wanaka has recently been listed as one of the world's 10 most romantic places to have a holiday in the book "Dream Destinations: 100 of the World's Best Vacations" published by Life Books.
In the centre of New Zealand's gorgeous South Island the charming town of Wanaka is situated on the edge of the crystal clear waters of Lake Wanaka, framed by lakeside poplar trees and sitting at the foot of the Southern Alps with sheep farms dotting the surrounding countryside. Wanaka is also the gateway to Mt Aspiring National Park and the jewel of the region is the dramatic pyramidal shaped Mount Aspiring and at 3027 metres it is the highest peak outside the Aoraki Mt Cook region and perhaps the most beautiful. The area is home to four international ski areas that offer excellent skiiing and snowboarding and the surrounding mountains are home to the most extensive heli-skiing area outside of North America.
Its smaller size in comparison to Queenstown gives Wanaka the ambience and feeling of light, freedom and spaciousness and the region has been described as a hidden paradise, a stunning location that borders on pristine perfection where visitors can relax, breathe mountain air and enjoy year round activies. Wanaka means ‘Renewal of the Soul’ in Maori, which says it all!
