Country Wedding 

Marriage Ceremony & Venue Package


If you're looking for some where a little different for your wedding day, you may want to consider a small wedding ceremony in my home, in the peaceful and beautiful Ohariu Valley - the equestrian centre of Wellington.

This could be the perfect answer for those looking to have a small intimate venue for up for up to two hours with a maximum of 20 people for a wedding, renewal of  vows, or an elopement . 

I'm only 6 km from Johnsonville, and a 20-25 minute drive from the centre of Wellington city.  You can have your ceremony on the lawn overlooking the picturesque countryside followed by a few celebratory bubbles and canapes.  Then you and your guests head back to town for your 'reception lunch or dinner' some where else. 

This is NOT a 'registry style wedding'  it's your very own personalised ceremony,  your words, your love story which we'll share with your guests and you'll say your own words of love to each other.   And I can marry you any day  or time of the week, including weekends. 

This is something I offer in addition to my usual wedding celebrant services.  And of course I can marry you ever you choose,  but you may want to consider having a small intimate personalised wedding ceremony at my home or at Tussock Ridge. 


Another option is using for those looking for something very unique for their small group such as an elopement type wedding with you two and up to a maximum of 8 people.  You can also keep costs down by self-catering.  Imagine getting married at an old rustic Shepherds Cabin on the cliffs overlooking  Cook Strait - it's an absolutely unique wedding experience.  Costs vary depending on your requirements so please contact me to discuss. 

Regardless of where you choose to get married, I’d love to be involved and to be the one to say “I now pronounce you married’ or whatever words you want.

Let’s talk about making your day extra special and memorable for you and your guests in the delightful Ohariu Valley countryside.
