Boutique Country Wedding Venue in Ohariu Valley

Celebrant & Venue Package


If you’re looking for a unique venue for an intimate wedding, or maybe it’s time to renew your vows, or perhaps an elopement ceremony for up to a maximum of  20 - bride and groom, 2 witnesses and 16 guests: let's talk. 

In addition to my celebrant services, I’m now able to offer hosting personalised wedding ceremonies at my rural family home in the scenic Ohariu Valley.  This is an optional extra and will incur a separate hire fee.

Located in the beautiful Ohariu Valley, (6 km from Johnsonville)  I offer an outdoor venue that’s stunning, peaceful, rural, and modern.  We’re only a 20-minute drive from the centre of Wellington city.  Perfect for those wanting an intimate ceremony away from the city crowds. 

After your ceremony and a few celebratory drinks and photos, you and your guests would head back to the city or wherever you want for your reception or dinner. 

Wedding packages (venue and celebrant) start at $2,050 and can be tailored to suit your unique wedding experience.  This is not a 'Registry Style' wedding, it's a very personalised ceremony where I write your love story.  Fee includes the venue hire, with options to add on refreshments and finger food for you and your guests before heading off for your 'reception dinner'.  And you can get married by me any day of the week, including weekends.  

I also work closely with , for very small wedding parties wanting an elopement type wedding with you two and your two witnesses or up to a maximum of 6 people.  Think about it -  you could get married at their Shepherds Cabin on the cliffs overlooking the Cook Strait - it's an absolutely unique wedding experience. 

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.

Get in touch and let’s work together to make your day extra special, all about both of you in the delightful Ohariu Valley countryside.
