Get Hitched in Hawke's Bay

Every year thousands of people choose Hawke's Bay as their wedding destination and it's easy to understand why.

We have a huge variety of beautiful indoor and outdoor venues including wineries and vineyards, art deco buildings, country homesteads and marquee locations.

Throw fresh local produce, talented chefs and caterers in with our award winning wines and you have the perfect wedding day menu.

Many of our venues are available for multi-day hire so for couples who want to carry on the festivities there are plenty of options to return the next day, or hire one of the self contained accommodation options for relaxed bbqs or parties. There are also plenty of things for your guests to see and do whilst they are here, making your wedding the perfect reason to take a holiday at the same time.

Of course the most obvious reason people choose to get married in Hawke's Bay is because of our weather. Our hot sunny summers and mild winters mean you can plan a lot better and not be thwarted by Mother Nature (although we can't guarantee she won't misbehave from time to time)

It's not just locals that get married in Hawke's Bay- couples from around the world and New Zealand tie the knot here for all these very reasons, however if you fancy taking the stress out of the planning you can always try one of our experienced event organisers. And of course we have lots of wonderful accommodation in Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and further afield for you and your guests to enjoy.
