5 Unique Accommodation Options for Wellington Weddings

22 November 2021

Getting married in New Zealand's gorgeous capital city could be a dream come true.

After all, Wellington offers visitors an ideal mix of urban conveniences and rural beauty. Fortunately, finding the ideal accommodation for your Wellington honeymoon and wedding ceremony isn't challenging. Dozens of elegant and enchanting properties can help you make your special day truly unforgettable.

 

Celebrating a Wellington Wedding

Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand, located at the scenic southern tip of North Island. The rising hillsides, colorfully painted historic buildings, and thriving urban downtown are only a tiny part of Wellington's charm.

This picturesque city is home to an unspoiled wildlife sanctuary, Zealandia, which could be the ideal location for your ceremony. Or, if you'd instead enjoy a slightly more opulent outdoor wedding, you could always choose to exchange vows at the massive Wellington Botanic Garden!

No matter what kind of ceremony you're planning, you can find a Wellington venue that fits the bill. For example, those looking to hold smaller weddings may opt for one of the several luxurious Bachcare properties in the Wellington area.

When you've said your vows and tied the knot, you can take your time enjoying all of the wonders Wellington has to offer during your honeymoon. After all, New Zealand's capital city is home to top-rated restaurants, one-of-a-kind clubs and bars, and romantic wine tours.

The stunning Cedar House neighbors another of our favorite Wellington honeymoon homes--The Pinot Longbox! And like that similarly luxurious property, this home offers access to a shared swimming pool, a grass-covered tennis court, and a cozy living room fireplace.

Despite having three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this home is a little on the smaller side. This size difference makes it an excellent choice for small ceremonies.
