Your Wedding Ceremony

There are a number of beautiful locations at Staglands where you can hold your ceremony - at The Barn, down at the river, in the old bush settlement or in the secret garden, or even at the top of the deer park - these are only a few places that spring to mind..

We are happy to suggest some of the areas that have worked well for other couples.  

                                 
ceremony only:
$150 for up to 40 guests
$200 for up to 150 guests

This includes a time for you to come up to Staglands during our opening hours for a rehearsal prior to your special day. This fee also includes time for wedding photos with your photographer and we will also provide a table for signing the registry. This is a location fee only. Barn hire is $80 per hour (minimum of 3 hours).

We also have seating available to hire.



Your Wedding Reception

'The Barn' is the perfect venue and there's no other place in Wellington like it.

The charming, yet rustic style of this building is ideal. Set in stunning native bush with a verandah that overlooks a beautiful pond and waterfall, The Barn is a superb location. We have some great catering options available including our popular Roaster meal/PicsHotel/Staglands/Brochure/Roaster menu updated.pdf or a casual BBQ menu, or you are welcome to self cater.
