Our lawn area, situated next to an orchard of fruit trees, has breathtaking views towards the Southern Alps, which are dusted with snow in the winter. This is a popular location for wedding ceremonies at Waipuna, and gives you the opportunity to add lots of your own personal touches to the set up. The undercover terrace is also the perfect space for a winter wedding, offering heating and lighting solutions while being outside and taking advantage of the breathtaking views from Waipuna.
Our covered terrace is surrounded by rustic gardens, and has sweeping views of Christchurch and the Canterbury Plains. It can be used for your ceremony in either fine or wet conditions.
Should the weather be on the chilly side, you and your guests will be comfortable and cosy, with our double-glazing, underfloor heating, a very effective heat pump, and a gas fire.
Waipuna effortlessly lends itself to both larger and smaller weddings, providing a luxurious, intimate location for your ceremony and reception. With your choice of trestle or round tables, our function room hosts up to 85 guests for a seated meal.
We can also comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests for a cocktail party style wedding reception.
