A little about Zealandia Sanctuary (Waiapu Road, Karori, Wellington)

It’s hard to believe that an eco-sanctuary is located only ten minutes from the city centre and that you can hold your wedding ceremony, reception (or both) here. Best of all, since it’s non-profit you would be making a valuable contribution to the venue. A wedding at Zealandia is stress free since you’ll be provided a co-ordinator who has the expertise to turn your dream wedding into a reality.

Couples have three ceremony venue spaces to choose from—depending on the size and weather. There is the Heritage Lawn by the lake that’s surrounded by a forest and the historic valve tower and boat shed. For weddings with less than 70 and want a more private ceremony, there is the Round Lawn. Zealandia is also prepared for the unpredictable Wellington weather and has an indoor option in case of rain. The reception takes places in the Rata Cafe that can seat 100 guests and overlooks the aforementioned forest and lake.
