There are unspoiled beaches that line all coasts and bustling cities such as Auckland and Wellington.

Getting married in New Zealand is pretty simple: once you have lodged a notice for intended marriage & got the go ahead you can get planning.

All marriages must be performed by a registered marriage celebrant - whether civil or religious (a minister is a marriage celebrant also).
