Reduce the Stress!
While we can’t take your nerves away completely, we can definitely help you relax as much as possible and enjoy the preparation time while staying at your wedding venue! Don’t spend your morning racing around from one place to the next, worrying about how long it’s going to take you to travel to your venue. You don’t have to worry about being flustered or rushed on the way to your wedding venue, your dress won’t be creased from the car ride (you don’t even need to think about wedding cars if you don’t want to!). Relax in the knowledge that when you arrive at Waipuna the day before your wedding, you are here. There is no more rushing around, everyone comes to you – how luxurious is that?!

We Are On Hand Whenever You Need Us!
When you stay at Waipuna for your wedding, our day starts as early as you need us! Our team will be on hand to make the hot drinks (or pour the bubbles, whichever takes your fancy!). We’ll ensure you have a delicious breakfast to start your day off perfectly and work in with your hair and make up timings.

The sprawling ensuite in the Kowhai room is heaven to begin your preparations. The walk-in robe is possibly large enough to comfortably house five wedding dresses! The Kowhai room itself has so much space for your hair stylist and make up artist to ensure you and your crew are all looking your finest.

Photo Options Galore!
Your photographer will have lots of space to capture those stunning shots. Hang your wedding dress in the windows for some amazing photos. Line up your group on the terrace for a couple of girly shots before you are in your dresses. Get those candid photos with some of your best people having the best time.

In between all the excitement, we can organise a delectable lunch for you and your bridal party to make sure you don’t end up a hungry bride and have enough energy to last the whole day and night. Pop out to the reception area and check out the final touches, take a stroll to the ceremony site and soak up the peace and tranquillity.

At the end of the night, there is no traveling to another location, you simply walk down the hallway, and your accommodation is there waiting for you! Round off the evening with a soak in the spa, enjoy a nightcap with your new husband or wife, relax in the lounge with your bridal party and reflect on the amazing day that’s just taken place.

Want to really extend the celebrations? We can put together a customised package for you to welcome your guests back the following day for extended celebrations. Make the most of this incredibly special time with those who mean the most to you. Talk to us about having a post-wedding celebration the day after your wedding at Waipuna!
