A Look at Wedding Ceremony Venues in Auckland

Aug 5th 2015 at 3:01 AM

Auckland has an extremely diverse landscape that makes it a perfect backdrop for wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Proof of this is the great abundance of wedding venues across the city and beyond. From historical buildings to vineyard estates, world class hotels, gardens, harbor areas, and specialized function venues, Auckland has great things to offer everyone looking for a nice place to say their vows and seal their marriage.

Downtown will surprise you with its sheer number of super-sized hotel chains, all of which are more than adept at managing all details of your wedding event. Many facilities also have dedicated wedding planning teams to help you with all the aspects of the celebration that needs to be taken care of. Also, abundant downtown are dedicated function halls surrounded by stunning scenes that are perfect as wedding locations. The best of these are perched in acres upon acres of rolling parklands with breathtaking views of the city's harbour. Specialized wedding facilities in hotels and dedicated wedding and events venues are fully equipped with everything you could need for such a huge event. When seeking out a downtown wedding venue in Auckland, go for one that can provide you with comprehensive services that will help take care of very little detail of the ceremony, reception, catering, and even your wedding decorations.

Outside of downtown are a great many areas where you can also enjoy a quiet ceremony. North Shore, for instance, is sprinkled with event venues that take advantage of the city's marvellous coastline and its scenic, pristine beaches. Takapuna and Devonport are particularly famous wedding spots, next to downtown's Manukau Harbour, which can thoroughly be enjoyed from the lush Cornwall Park. Other locations that are worth checking out include Mission Bay, where wedding venues offer lovely views of the Rangitoto Island and the Hauraki Gulf.

If you want a more secluded and exclusive wedding experience, Waiheke Island is only a 35 minute ferry ride from Downtown. The island is known for its awe-inspiring wineries and unrivalled beaches, which also make a great backdrop for wedding ceremonies. West of the city are the Waitakere Ranges, offering some 40,000 sprawling hectares of rainforest and a beautifully untamed coastline. Auckland has so much more to offer in terms of wedding locations and formal event facilities, making it a rising destination for many different types of events, gatherings, and celebrations apart from festive weddings and corporate events.
