When you walk into this beautiful venue it is like walking into a completely different place and you will feel as if you are no longer in Auckland and that you have found the most beautiful Gardens in New Zealand. 

With the gazebo that looks over the water on both sides, with some real sea sand which gives the feel of being on your own secluded island is just indescribable. 

If you are looking for something that not many people have had the opportunity to experience, then this is the perfect location to make your partner feel extra special!

Proposal Rock by Helicopter

What better way to ask the love of your life to get married than on a rock in the ocean that you can only get to by helicopter? 

The "Proposal Rock" is a completely thrilling and nerving experience, especially if you don't know that you are going to land on a rock, but as soon as you land and get off you are completely mesmerized by what is all around you. 

It is an experience that only a few people get to have because it all depends on the weather, wind, and everything else in order for the helicopter to land on the rock.

But if the day is perfect, you are very lucky with the breathtaking views, and all you need to do is get off the helicopter and pop the question. 

If you are looking for a way to propose that will send some amazing shivers down your spine, then this is definitely the BEST option to choose.

What better way than to have a yacht for an intimate and private proposal?

Not only do you get to propose on a yacht, you get to sail off with your future wife and have a perfect evening just the two of you enjoying a wine and talking about your future plans.

Auckland Harbour have so many options for private yachts which can make it hard to decide on one, thats why you get a planner like Zanthe Vorsatz Photography to set it all up for you from start to finish.

Create a late afternoon sunset proposal to create the high class romantic feels that will make all your partners dream come true with the perfect proposal experience.

High School Sweethearts

If you and your partner are high school sweethearts, this is the most thoughtful way to propose. 

Not everybody gets an opportunity like this, there are only so many people that meet the love of their lives in high school, and decide to spend the rest of their lives together. 

If you still live in the same place where you went to high school then why not plan an extra special proposal like this? This will bring back all the memories you shared and the love you had when you first met as teenagers, and now you get to start a new journey together that involves FOREVER. 

If you are one of the few couples that have a high school story, then this should be on the top of your list.
