When ticking the wedding day must-do boxes, ‘arriving in style’ features highly on most couples’ lists. After all, the journey to your chosen venue is all part of the experience and so it’s important to make it both memorable and enjoyable.
There are many ways in which to travel, from classic car and vintage bus to cool campers or traditional horse and cart. Perhaps the most impressive way to get from A to B though is in your very own piloted helicopter.
Just imagine the adrenaline rush as you soar through the skies to your wedding destination, sharing the moment with your nearest and dearest, and instantly removing the worry of getting stuck in traffic.
If this thrilling option spikes your interest, or that of your partner’s, then you will want to pay extra close attention to this afternoon’s post, as we’re taking a look at the fabulous offering from experts in the field, High Flying Helicopter, to see how their various air travel packages can add to a couple’s wedding experience, not only on the big day itself, but before and after the “I dos” too!
cloud nine proposal
As a reader of the blog there’s a high possibility that you already have a ring on your finger. However, if you are still waiting on the official ask, or are planning to pop the question to your partner soon, then why not do it a thousand feet up in the air, for that real cloud nine feeling?
High Flying Helicopter offers a range of Proposal Experiences for varying budgets, that can be tailored to achieve your dream ring-reveal moment! You could select one of their helicopter tours over the capital, taking in London’s iconic landmarks before touching back down by a “will you marry me” banner and celebrating with bubbly and chocolates. Alternatively, you could add on a champagne afternoon tea at a 4* hotel, or even dinner at a Michelin star restaurant.
Taking things up a gear, you could spoil your new fiancé with an overnight stay in a swanky penthouse or luxury hotel. Then there’s also the option to top off the helicopter ride with an indulgent spa day or romantic vineyard tour and wine tasting. Though, for the ultimate proposal, there is no finer option than High Flying Helicopter’s Paris Proposal, which includes a return helicopter trip to the French capital, a ten ft personalised “will you marry me” banner, chocolates, flowers and champagne, plus lunch/brunch at a Michelin star restaurant. I mean, if that doesn’t have your other half nodding frantically when you get down on one knee, we’re not sure what will.
