Servicing Canberra, the Snowy Mountains, and beyond - give us a call to discuss how we can make your day even more special.
A simple reality of alpine flying, is that sometimes, the weather just is not suitable or safe to allow our plans to go ahead on schedule. Occasionally this means the wedding day timelines get rescheduled or modified, and other times it means moving a ceremony to another more suitable time or location. Unfortunately it’s one of those things which is completely out of our control (we wish we could change the weather!) For this reason, it is highly advisable to have a back-up plan, be that a back-up day or back-up location, which your pilot will discuss with you when creating your Elopment booking.
Weather conditions in our mountain environment usually represents temperature and weather differences compared to the local temperature and weather in Jindabyne or Canberra. We always recommend to dress so the couple get the most enjoyment and comfort out of the day.
Most summer brides are comfortable without a jacket etc. Although in winter months, ensure you are dressed to suit the cold and sometimes snowy conditions. We certainly recommend layers of warm jackets, overcoats, gloves and scarves. Additionally, we would highly recommend for those brides wanting to wear heels, to wear a pair of sturdy flats or boots for walking on snow and uneven ground, however of course bring your heels to swap into, when in place for the ceremony and/or photographs if you wish.
