He Aroha, Te Aroha – In Love and in Queenstown

When Aaron met Richard 18 years ago at a disco in Jakarta, Indonesia, they never imagined that one day, they would be declaring their love for each other in front of the towering Remarkable mountain range overlooking Queenstown!

With a few close friends and Glennys Logan as their celebrant, Aaron and Richard chose to tie the knot at the beautiful Mercure Queenstown Resort, which they had seen and fallen in love with.

‘you will not find a more romantic location, or a warmer team of management and staff. We organised everything via internet and emails and it was really no problem at all! Even getting the marriage certificates were much easier than we had ever imagined!’


For Aaron and Richard, the breath taking landscape and surroundings, as well as the warmth of the people around them made their Queenstown wedding absolutely perfect! “We wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone!

“Laura from Ignition Self Drive was simply fabulous and the cars they offer are genuinely compelling!” Aaron told us! Despite the weather, driving around luxury cars on the Queenstown roads is pretty breathtaking in itself – lets be honest who wouldn’t enjoy taking these beauties for a spin??

Soaking in the outdoor hot tub in freezing temperatures was added to their crazy list – along with tandem parasailing, the Skyline Gondola, Milford Sound Fly-Cruise-Fly and the Shotover Jet boat – there is so much to do in Queenstown in addition to your wedding – just make sure you leave enough time to do everything!!!!

When we asked Aaron and Richard what advice they had to give to other couples thinking about Queenstown they simply said don’t give it a second thought! “We could not think of a more magical place to get married – although doing it outdoors in the midst of winter might not suit everyone – LOL! For them, there are three other seasons to choose from!”

“Special thanks goes to the magical movie makers Scott and Melissa from Sunshine Weddings who were simply fabulous and have become personal friends!” Make sure you watch the beautiful video of their special day here!

With huge thanks to Aaron and Richard who let us share their love story – an inspiration – and a couple who we wish the ‘happiest ever-after!’

He Aroha, Te Aroha

Love is Love
