Tarureka Estate

Tarureka Estate is home to one of the most beautiful barn wedding venues in New Zealand. Set in an eight acre estate, the historic barn and homestead have been lovingly restored and offer a unique rustic backdrop for your wedding with a whole weekend's stay in the homestead for 18 guests. Situated in the Wairarapa, just one hour out of Wellington, The Loft at Tarureka Estate can comfortably hold up to 120 guests and is equipped with a fully-functioning commercial kitchen and bar and modern bathrooms. With a chapel and sit-down banquet area upstairs and a bar and dance floor below, the Loft is the perfect spot for both your ceremony and reception. The addition of a cosy wood fire and sparkling lights make it an ideal venue for winter weddings. If the sun is shining, however, your ceremony could be held in the wedding grove, on a soft green lawn surrounded by native trees or on the rose-bordered tennis court in front of the homestead. Our caterers offer professional service and delicious food and are more than happy to provide a next-day brunch for you and your guests. Our licence is BYO. This unique historical venue is the perfect spot for a dreamy country wedding. Our weekends book up quickly, so make sure you talk to one of the team soon if Tarureka Estate is what you have been looking for.

I’ve been meaning to write for ages to say how much we loved the Tarureka Estate for our wedding weekend. There aren’t enough superlatives to cover it off. All my family and several friends who stayed absolutely loved it … it was warm, cosy, grand, luxurious and great fun. We wanted for nothing in the house and over all it was a wonderful, happy and memorable weekend.
