Orchard setting. Walk to beach via secret garden. We understand that your wedding is going to be one of the most important days of your life. We also understand how to help make it run smoothly, how to add the finishing touches that make it special and how to remove the stress. At Waiau Country Estate our wedding ceremonies generally take place on the bridal lawn which sits to the front of the Waiau restaurant. Wedding receptions are usually held in the Waiau restaurant and/or our covered, sheltered terrace and outside fire area. We are able to cater for up to 120 guests. Exclusivity to the Waiau restaurant and grounds is provided for weddings of 70 or more. Where numbers are less than this, although not exclusive the layout of Waiau still allows for an intimate wedding ceremony and wedding reception away from other patrons. Waiau is a truly beautiful venue, surrounded by large trees and expansive lawns. It takes very little to transform it into the perfect wedding location. There is room for everyone.
