Imagine your wedding ceremony in one of New Zealand’s most spectacular historic buildings.
Since 1866, Old St Paul's has been a welcoming and sophisticated venue for hundreds of wedding couples. Famed for its glowing wooden interior and illuminated stained glass windows, this iconic property in the heart of Wellington provides the perfect setting for a traditional wedding with that delicate twist of modern elegance.
No longer a parish church, and proudly cared for by Heritage New Zealand... View more Pouhere Taonga, Old St Paul's is non-denominational though still consecrated. Design your own large or intimate ceremony, whether it is religious, civil, LGBTIQA+, or a renewal of vows.
Venue hire includes exclusive use of the church for 90 minutes, pew decorations and the services of our dedicated wedding coordinator. There is also the option of bells, organ and/or piano music performed by the Old St Paul’s musician, or extended time for photography.
