What could offer a better backdrop to your big day than an alpine village setting.
Hanmer Springs is an idyllic setting for both weddings and honeymoons, and it is our express aim to make your wedding an unforgettable and hassle-free experience.
Our extensive range of options are designed to make your day special, regardless of budget.
From luxury transport pick-ups from Christchurch airport to shuttle buses for your guests, we will ensure that everyone arrives in time. Accommodation for the couple is provided by Clear Ridge Apartments, with a wide range of alternative guest accommodations to suit all needs. In-room therapeutic massages and private spa pool sessions are standard for the bridal couple, as is a romantic dinner for two at our outstanding 5 star restaurant, No. 31.
On the day, the Wai ariki Complex is exclusively for your use, and what better way to arrive than on the back of our antique horse-drawn wagonette. This not only wow´s your guests but creates amazing rustic photo opportunities.
After the ceremony, guests enjoy a selection of local wines (Waipara Hills) and craft beers (both Matsons and McCashins) while our inhouse photographer creates your wedding album using the park and animals to create that bucolic backdrop.
With all formalities over there is only one thing left to do – celebrate! Professionally catered, our banquet dining options cover BBQ / Spit Roast to 5 course meals, all done in what is truly the most private and peaceful exclusive use venue in Hanmer Springs!
With all arrangements being made by our inhouse coordinator, your only obligation is to turn up on the day (fashionably late, of course!)
