Wedding, Renew of Vows or Commitment Ceremony in a hot air balloon!
Do you dream of a wedding that is a little bit different?
Why not enjoy the romance and magic of your special ceremony afloat in the sky?
It’s hard to envision anything more thrilling or romantic than sharing your wedding or commitmentvows high in the sky. There is no better way to celebrate your new life together than at the beginning of a new day!
A hot air balloon ride at sunrise is the perfect backdrop to your wedding or commitment ceremony.
Hot air ballooning in the Ipswich, Scenic Rim and Somerset region takes place as the new day is beginning. The air is stable and the winds are calm, ensuring a tranquil hot air balloon flight.
Your special day can be a traditional style, a casual wedding or something different. The balloon is exclusively yours. You choose the day, the numbers, the place, the marriage celebrant, the photographer, and if you wish the reception venue after the flight.
How your special day will unfold:
- Meet & Greet passengers in the foyer of the Metro Hotel Ipswich International, 43 South Street, Ipswich, Queensland, just before sunrise. However, we can meet your wedding party at a suitable, pre – arranged meeting / launch site within our flight region. Your own property perhaps!
- The ceremony itself takes place whilst in flight, exchanging vows with views of Ipswich, Scenic Rim & Somerset regions gently unfolding before your eyes.
- Once we have landed, we then return for your champagne breakfast reception at our nominated breakfast venue where additional guests are more than welcome to join you in celebrations after the flight for an additional cost, or you can arrange your own reception venue.
We fly almost every day, subject to the weather being suitable. Ballooning is a weather dependant activity and if it is raining or too windy we are unable to fly. You need to take this into account when planning a balloon wedding ceremony. If the weather is not safe for flight, you can decide if you want to reschedule the flight and wedding for another date, or if you prefer to keep the date for your wedding, the wedding may be performed on the ground without the balloon.
We’ll do everything we can to make your special day, using a hot air balloon, the very best it can be.
Please call Floating Images staff to discuss your wedding plans in a hot air balloon in more detail. We can’t wait to share in your special day!
