Nelson is the sunniest city in New Zealand. So if you want a very sunny wedding play it safe. Nelson lakes National park in only a bit more than an hour away from the city and has magical views. In Nelson and Golden bay you will have it all: mountains, lakes and golden sand beaches. One of my favourite spots in Abel Tasman area is Farewell spit. It looks like another planet. After an hour walk you will get to a desert with million birds hanging around. This place looks like nowhere. You can take a Farewell spit car ride for epic wedding photos. Another gorgeous spot for wedding photoshoot is Wharariki Beach. Locals say it's their most loved beach in the area. When you drive back from Wharariki Beach to Nelson stop at Harwoods hole, I did not see much of the hole, but the forest looked like from a fairy tale.
