Every year, hundreds of couples from all over the world tie the knot on Waiheke Island. Many of the island locals are involved in weddings throughout the year - as celebrants, bakers, designers, wine makers, entertainment, chefs, photographers, and venues. We truly believe we offer the best wedding location in all of New Zealand for couples who want to celebrate their love. Here’s why.
Imagine being married looking out upon upon the rolling slopes of a lush vineyard, or walking along a pristine, deserted beach with your lover. On Waiheke Island you can escape to a world of stunning vistas, fine food and wine, and romance in the air. If you want to create a dream day that truly makes a statement about who you are as a couple, you should look no further than a Waiheke wedding.
Even though Waiheke Island feels like another world, it’s just a 35 minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could fly guests over in a chartered flight or helicopter (as long as your venue has somewhere for the helicopter to land). Your wedding party and guests can head back to civilisation on the last ferry, or stay overnight in one of the island’s many luxury accommodations.
It caters for all wedding styles
Whether you’re planning a large marquee wedding, a formal and intimate affair, or a more casual beach-side ceremony, Waiheke Island’s venues, caterers, designers and other wedding vendors have a solution to meet your needs. We’re in the business of creating unforgettable moments.
