The Queenstown Wedding Association is made up of dedicated wedding professionals who are passionate about providing unforgettable experiences to couples looking to plan a wedding in one of the most beautiful places in the world – and they, along with many of their members, are Pride Pledge supporters!
Queenstown is already New Zealand’s largest wedding destination and makes a significant economic impact on the region, right across the wedding sector and broader tourism and hospitality industry. With 700 LGBT+ weddings and civil unions in New Zealand in 2019, Queenstown is making it’s mark as the LGBT+ capital and rightly so.
Through the Pride Pledge partnership, Queenstown has a growing number of dedicated wedding businesses that have taken the Pledge to ensure they are welcoming and inclusive for LGBT+ weddings. This is the largest group in New Zealand, and surrounded by a further 80 Pride Pledge businesses in town.
Not only have they made the commitment, but many have also completed Diversity and Inclusion awareness training focussed on the LGBT+ communities.
Whether you are planning from near or far, arranging a wedding in Queenstown has never been easier. Their directory of wedding professionals includes an amazing array of venues to suit large or small weddings, talented professionals in every field from planning to catering, entertainment to celebrants and everything in between! The Queenstown Wedding Association members are here to help you pull together your very own dream wedding, set against the stunning backdrop of the Remarkables mountains and the crystal clear lakes of New Zealand – one that your friends and family will be talking about for years to come.
At Winter Pride '21, the Queenstown Wedding Association launched the Wedding Showcase online, celebrating the Queenstown Lakes District's tradition of inclusive weddings.
