“From the moment we drove up the hill, we knew Waipuna would be the location of our wedding.
We only looked at one venue in person (after weeks of scrolling through the possibilities – though Waipuna was the dream top running option even then) and in the words of my now husband as we were leaving following our first visit – ‘we don’t need to look anywhere else, this is the one’. The team, location, venue facilities unbeatable.”

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.
