Ngā Manu Nature Reserve is a unique wedding venue offering a stunning ceremony setting alongside gorgeous wetlands and native bush. With 14 hectares of nature reserve to explore, photo opportunities are endless, and it is the perfect venue for either a formal or relaxed picnic-style wedding.
The Function Centre is nestled right alongside the wetlands with bi-folding doors, leading out to a sprawling deck and private lawn area with magnificent views of our main pond. Receptions for up to 90 people can easily be accommodated. Ngā Manu also provides the perfect marquee site next to our Function Centre if more indoor space is required. There is also a quaint cabin (Theo’s Cottage) located onsite that can be used as a dressing room, a place for the children in your bridal party to find sanctuary or it could provide convenient, overnight accommodation.
We recommend experienced local events specialists and caterers Party Perfect Catering to tailor your unique day or you may prefer to make your own arrangements.
