Your wedding day will be unique – because you are.  Whatever kind of day you desire, be it romantic elegance or a celebratory buzz, we will make it happen in just the way you have imagined.  Just 20-minutes from Wellington, The Lodge is a world away. Nestled amongst native bush and with commanding views of the Pauatahanui Inlet our historic country lodge is an ideal setting for your special day, easily accessible and with ample parking.  When you choose to celebrate your wedding at The Lodge, our wedding coordination team are on hand to craft your ideal setting for the day. Be it an intimate occasion with a small wedding reception or a gala vibe, we have the creative flair!

WEDDING FARE
The perfect wedding cuisine is as varied as our wedding themes. In making your menu choices we work closely with you to both delight your taste buds and meet your budget. Note that, our menu consultations also include dietary and cultural preferences. Should you require a specific cultural or dietary theme we have consultant Chefs we call on regularly to make this happen espcailly for you.  Choose from our delicious menus or tailor your menu from scratch, it’s up to you. There’s a huge variety on menus and themes, from finger foods and cocktail food, buffets, fully plated served meals and our family table.

THE HALLMARK OF A GREAT FEAST IS THE INGREDIENTS.
Around the world chefs go to great lengths in search of the best ingredients. We do the same by sourcing as much local and organic produce as we can get our hands on!  With a focus on blending a unique NZ flavour, we’re spoilt with the selection of primary foods our local area offers. Food is a big part of a celebration and it’s really important that it’s exactly right. That’s why we cater to all dietary requirements and offer variations on menus and themes to suit you. 

Whatever your food vision we’ll work with you to make it a reality. And if you don’t want it all to end, it doesn’t have to for the family or select group. Enjoy brunch the following day, champagne breakfast or a romantic breakfast and lunch for two – just because you can!

WEDDING PLANNING AND CONSULTATION SERVICE - WE'RE HERE FOR YOU
Memorable weddings require detailed planning, which is why our planning and consultation service is part of our wedding package. We’re adept at crafting the wedding of your choosing to meet the majority of budgets. Use us as much or as little as you like – you’re the bride!  In partnering with The Lodge with your wedding plans, rest assured that your special day is in safe hands. 

Many couples are married at The Lodge – we have relationships with a select group of marriage celebrants, who can assist if required. 

The Lodge can accommodate wedding ceremonies rain or shine. Your wedding day will go without a hitch no matter what weather mother nature serves up on the day!  Wedding parties are able to enjoy both indoor and outdoor space with vast decking surrounding the property and tranquil native bush or outstanding panoramic views of the Pauatahanui Inlet. 

The Lodge is also perfectly appointed to deliver the very best in winter comfort and luxury.  Our seasonal winter menu will be a delight to you too. And without the schedule conflicts of summer time, your guests are very likely to be available and super keen to be a part of your wedding!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

POSITIVE AND FRIENDLY SERVICE
I'm a photographer and I shot a wedding there on Saturday and it's some of the best service I have ever seen at a wedding reception - the staff were so positive!

I've heard new owners took over the place 7 months ago and are running it as a family business. It was amazing! I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a venue around Wellington.

THE MOST WONDERFUL FAIRYTALE WEDDING
Thankyou so much for the most wonderful fairytale wedding!

It really was the best night of our lives, had great feedback from our guests who said it was the best wedding they have ever attended (which I am really pleased about). The food was amazing, the service was excellent. I could not complain about a thing, really was the most magical day/night we intend to come and stay every year for our anniversaries. Thankyou again!

EXPERIENCED HOSTS
This venue was amazing, and we had the best wedding day ever. The best part was being able to relax and not have to run around as we had the ceremony, photos, reception, and bridal suite all in one location. The guys also got ready at the Lodge in the morning meaning which made things even easier.

Everything was well organised and the night flowed smoothly, it was great having experienced hosts guiding and suggesting the itinerary for the day to us and then being able to take over responsibility for it so that guests were happy the entire time, as were we. Our ceremony was held on the balcony and the view over the inlet was just incredible, we have the most gorgeous photos.

We had the reception in the Harbour Vue room, which felt so lovely and warm and intimate on the day for our reception of 70 people. The food exceeded all expectations and we continue to receive compliments on it. We had a Tuesday wedding, but still had guests stay past midnight. The staff were relaxed and didn’t push us to leave but just quietly stopped serving drinks and let the night wind down naturally.

The availability of accommodation on site enabled some family and friends to stay with us and it was fantastic waking up in the morning and continuing to celebrate with those guests. Without hesitation we'd recommend this venue to anyone.

WARM KIWI HOSPITALITY
The perfect venue for a wedding or family celebration. And the hostess, Viv Gurrey, is lovely!

I've been to functions at a lot of venues around the world, from Europe to Asia to the Middle East. But few have the charm, warmth and traditional kiwi hospitality of the Lodge out at Pauatahanui Inlet. The perfect venue for a wedding or family celebration.
