Often understated, Wellington is home to some of the most gorgeous venues in New Zealand. Only a brief 20 minute drive from Wellington CBD, after meandering through the golden tussocks of Ohariu Valley and climbing a secluded trail, you will arrive at one of Wellington’s premium wedding venues – Ohariu Farm Weddings & Events.
The first thing you will experience at Ohariu Farm – whether you are visiting your wedding venue options, or arriving on site as mother-of-the-bride or as a guest – is the immediate warm welcome of the venue owners, Nick and Zena. Having recently taken over this idyllic countryside venue, Nick and Zena has transformed the space into a rustic, quintessentially Kiwi wedding destination. Stepping out onto the lawn, where your wedding guests would wine, dine and hang out, there is a panoramic view of undisturbed Ohariu Valley, topped off with spinning windmills that mark this place as distinctly Wellingtonian. It really is like looking out onto a perfectly composed painting.
- A lush lawn, trimmed to perfection by Nick and his team, flanked by symmetrical wooden pillars that frame the view like a photo-ready set up
- 40 white ceremony chairs for your “wow” moment down the aisle
- Indoor hall dressed with sparkling chandeliers and a stunning head-table fairy light backdrop
- Thoughtfully selected tables, chairs, cutlery, tableware, glassware etc
- Organic, slow cooked menu, prepared from the freshest local produce by experienced kitchen staff
- Handcrafted gin bar
- An imperial looking fireplace with leather couches
- Your dedicated wedding coordinator, staffing and chef
- Special connections with the best-in-Wellington vendors, including lighting specialists (like Lumina!), florists, and interior decorators
- Have we mentioned the million-dollar view?
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND:
- Checking out Nick’s lovingly handcrafted wooden gin bar. You can use it for all sorts of drinks and snacks at your wedding.
- Ohariu Farm’s affordable pop up wedding packages for budget-conscious and time-strapped couples.
- Hiring Lumina’s Wellington LOVE light up letters – they fit in perfectly at this rustic New Zealand venue.
