Wedding Ceremonies can be held either in the waterside garden with Orakei Basin as a backdrop or the Loft during winter, or in the event of rain.
The private garden, with its mature Pohutukawa trees, is the perfect setting for a garden wedding ceremony. With seating for up to 160 guests and a flattened area for canapés and bubbly, the garden has always been a popular area for wedding ceremonies.
The Loft is ideal for winter weddings, or in the event of rain. With high ceilings and views over Orakei Basin, The Loft can comfortably seat 160 guests.
Orakei House boasts two main areas for wedding receptions. The Foyer is perfect for canapés & bubbly while the Bride & Groom are having photos taken and the Grand Room, with its floor to ceiling windows, is perfect for a banquet style wedding reception.
The Foyer, with its wrap around floor to ceiling windows and high ceilings, is the ideal pre-dinner reception area. In winter, wedding guests can be warmed by the open fireplace while sipping on sherry.
The Grand Room, which can comfortably seat 160 guests and has a commanding view over Orakei Basin, is the perfect wedding reception venue.
Great food and excellent service is what you can expect at your wedding reception.
