Situated in Wānaka, just off Cardrona Valley Road, The Venue neighbours stunning alpine vistas, and boasts an iconic mountainous backdrop without having to actually leave town. Location is key, with close proximity to the main township, accomodation for your guests and transportation is easily taken care of.

This ‘rustic-glam’ multi-use venue leaves you spoilt for choice when planning your perfect wedding or big event. With a sunny central courtyard connecting the internal  Rustic Wing and Garden wing, spilling out onto a manicured lawn, your vision for your day can be realised.

The smaller wing offers a more contemporary vibe, with timber floors, a gas fireplace, and garden views, accommodating 60-70 seated guests. The possibilities are endless for the Garden Wing; if your group size allows, you could choose to host the ceremony, formalities or dining in this wing, leaving the Rustic Wing for dancing and festivities. Or, this space could simply allow people to escape the music, and mingle in a quieter area as they enjoy cake and hot drinks. The Garden Wing also provides peace of mind when it comes to wet or unfavourable weather, serving as a refined and tasteful safety net for a wedding ceremony.

A striking alpine backdrop lines the outdoor courtyard, providing the quintessential Wānaka wedding experience! Creating an indoor outdoor flow, this space connects both wings, bringing your group together throughout the night. Fitted with bar leaners, tables, chairs, and umbrellas for those surprisingly warm summer evenings, and with fairy lights creating a magical ambiance in the evening, this space is ideal for canapés and drinks.

A mature garden encompasses a large manicured lawn, ideal for an outdoor wedding, lawn games, and casual drinks and canapés. Of course, you may choose a different location for your wedding ceremony, and return to The Venue for a reception and festivities.
