Picture this: the sun has started to set, lighting up the sky in vibrant orange and pink colours, and you’re soaring high above the rolling hills. With the quietness of the surroundings and only the occasional puff of air released into the balloon, it’s the perfect moment to pop the question.
FAB Proposal Tip: Arrange for a celebratory beverage at your landing spot. Our tailor-made packages also include a champagne or gin experience to add a special touch to celebrate your hot air balloon proposal !

Take a hot air balloon flight from one of our launch sites, where the balloon and pilot wait for you. This private experience means you’ll have it all to yourselves, allowing you to take stunning images of the surrounding hills and green lands that stretch out to the sea.

Hot Air Balloon Tethers and Rides for Romantic Occasions
Take to the skies in style and see the stunning landscapes of the Southwest from a new perspective by going on a hot air balloon ride. Whether you’re looking to travel with the wind on a romantic private flight or want tethered hot air balloon rides at your event, we’ll take you and your guests on an aerial adventure of a lifetime.

How it works: We offer a standard 2 hours of tethering for hot air balloon hire at weddings , with the option to add more hours. Our flights are perfect for guests to try during your event, especially before and after sunset!
Availability: Our shared flights are available mornings and evenings, weekdays and weekends, from April to October. Live availability is shown on our website. Please note, as with all hot air balloon rides, they are entirely weather-dependent.
Whether you exchange vows amidst the illuminated glow of tethered hot air balloons or capture your love story on an aerial photo shoot, each hot air balloon ride is a unique experience etched against the backdrop of the Southwest. Kickstart your romantic celebrations, and toast with your partner, friends, and family while looking down on the beautiful surroundings .
