Our story starts with a YES!
Our first adventure as husband and wife starts in New Zealand...
We’re heading to New Zealand where we will spend a few weeks cruising around sampling the outdoor delights of the stunning Bay of Islands in North Island, before touring South Island where we will take on the rapids of Shotover River and the heights of Mount Cook ….. not forgetting a tipple or 2 at the vineyards enroute!

This is a little bit of us… from extreme action to extreme scenery. Put us back in the saddle and send us on our merry little way, cycling around world famous lake Wanaka
ROMANTIC SUPPER ON THE BEACH
Our first stop is at the Bay of Islands, treat us to our first beach dining experience as Mr & Mrs Tom Cheesman.
SEAL SWIMMING FROM KAIKOURA
It might sound like an orange drink but this exhilarating ocean dip appeals to Alice’s love of nature to swim with wild New Zealand Fur Seals. Please please please this ones a must!
Although we are already giddy for each other it would be rude not to sample some of New Zealands finest grapes… cheers!
SWIM WITH DOLPHINS IN AKAROA
BUNGY JUMP, QUEENSTOWN
Do we dare plunge 141 feet in 5 seconds from the original Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge. Will we take another leap of faith together or will we lose our nerve on the day?
MILFORD SOUNDS CRUISE
We love a little bit of romance and what could be more romantic than setting sail on board a luxury catamaran through the fjordland National Park, with spectacular sights of Mitre Peak and magnificent cliff-side waterfalls.
MITAI MAORI VILLAGE EXPERIENCE
Mitai offers an authentic cultural evening with traditional dress, an earth cooked hangi feast and Alice promises to live stream Tom’s first attempt at the hakka!
BAY OF ISLANDS HELI TOUR
Help us reach dizzying heights for a birdseye view of the beautiful Bay of Islands. This would definately be one off the bucket list for Tom!
SKYLINE GONDOLA & RESTAURANT
Send us off on a Queenstown Gondola to the Stratosphere Restaurant which sits high on Bob’s Peakat Skyline. We may have had enough of lovingly gazing into each others eyes at this point so we can gaze longly out at the prime views of Coronet Peak for a while over supper.
SHOTOVER JET EXPERIENCE
A change of pace from the slow walk down the aisle. help us up the anti and get the adrenaline pumping as we maneuver through the rapids and canyons.
ARTHUR’S PASS & TRANZALPINE EXPRESS TRAIN
This ones especially for Alice and her love of animals… she’ll get to visit a Sheep Farm! As well as ride the TranzAlpine Train through the Waimakariri Gorge with a spot of lunch in a local restaurant of Arthur’s Pass.
SEAPLANE RIDE OVER TAUPO
Lake Taupo forms the perfect backdrop for Alice to get a hold of the joystick and take Tom’s life in her hands.
Flying a Seaplane may be a giddy task but she is up for the challenge!
ROTORUA THERMAL POOLS
Add some colour with a sparkling trip walking us through the hot springs and champagne pools before a mud dip plunge and our geyser blows his top!
LORD OF THE RINGS – JOURNEY TO EDORAS
Somethings should be left behind Closed doors… but Tom does love a bit of role play so this is right up his street, much to Alice’s amusement. You can even pose with replica props such as Aragorn’s sword at the location where they shot the trilogy of Lord of the Rings.
HELI HIKE FRANZ JOSEPH GLACIER
Exploring the Ice Caves and Pinacles of this amazing glacier will certainly lower our core temperature for a few hours but don’t worry as our passion for each other will keep us warm.
We would love to be at one with nature for a night or two deep within the Rainforest of the West Coast Glacier. With a choice of Tree Huts Alice can be Jane to Tom’s Tarzan! Ahhhhhh ahh ah ah ahhh
SKYDIVE OVER QUEENSTOWN
Challenge us… how high will we go? We want to throw ourselves out of a perfectly good plane but will we freefall from 9,000, 12,000 or 15,000 feet at speeds of up to 124mph.
GLACIER SKI PLANE TOUR FROM MOUNT COOK
Our love know’s no ends but will it withstand the heights of Mount Cook? We want to reach the top of New Zealands highest Mountain, Mount Cook albeit with a little help from a Ski Plane. We’re fit but not that fit!
Show us the love 😍
