Mudbrick Vineyard

The old world opulence and unmistakeable presence lends an air of sophistication to your wedding. Already incredibly detailed and beautiful, Mudbrick doesn't require much in the way of décor but with touches the like of our robust gleaming candelabras, sweeping greenery garlands and the glow of candles along the crackling fire, Mudbrick becomes the scene of an opulent olfdworld affair.


The Rippon Hall

Situated overlooking its own vineyards, Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps, The Rippon Hall is full of possibilities. Its main hall is a blank canvas, leaving you to let your imagination shine. Also with outdoor areas available nestled between the vineyards, there is an option for everyone. Not to mention its spectacular photography opportunities within the picturesque surroundings.

Harlow Garland is the exclusive wedding planner for The Rippon Hall.


The Sapphire Room

Ponsonby Central's first floor function room is the perfect sport for alternative weddings. Its rustic mish mash hardwood floors and exposed steel ceiling beams are the perfect juxtoposition to the opulent chandeliers, bold red doors and modern kitchen. The three areas within the room mean that each area can be closed off for the big reveal and the ample light makes it the perfect spot for photos. The steel beams are the ultimate anchor for luxurious draping to separate areas and the ample kitchen and prep areas round out the total offer of this unique venue.

Willowbrook Park

Willowbrook Park is a stunning 18th century private country estate situated upon 30 acres of picturesque land which was once an apple orchard. Owners David and Peter Cowell spent their time creating the gardens and landscaping themselves, planting over 15,000 bushes, tress and plants in order to construct spectacular themed gardens and outdoor-rooms, which have been faultlessly designed in a way that blends them seamlessly with their surroundings.

They cater for up to 50 guests and offer an array of options for your ceremony and reception including the serene gardens, the lake, the orchard, in a marquee on the lawns or in the grand ballroom. The luxury accommodations at Willowbrook Park are also the perfect option for your bridal party the night prior to your big day to help eliminate any unwanted stress.
