Wedding venues

The romantic mountain scenery and sparkling, clear waters of Lake Taupo make the region an unforgettable setting for a very special wedding day.

If you’ve never been to the region, a weekend getaway with your sweetheart, scouting out vineyards, rustic farm and forest settings, luxury lodges and private properties with breathtaking lake and mountains views is the perfect way to discover your dream wedding location.

A unique outdoor wedding option is to exchange vows on board a heritage yacht or luxury launch as it cruises the sparkling waters of Lake Taupo against the backdrop of the mountains. Many of the scenic cruise operators offer wedding packages and can help you plan your dream day.

Indoor wedding venues include beautiful churches, elegant lakeside hotels, ballrooms, event centres, sports clubs and charming community halls. Many have in-house event planners and catering facilities who can help with your wedding planning.
