Matakana Wedding Venues
By Avya Hlaváč

We like to think of Matakana as "bougie rural." Here, you can enjoy the tranquillity of a rural New Zealand town but with the sophistication of beautiful wineries, artisan food producers, and boutique stores. As Hannah Montana once said, you get the best of both worlds.

Home to one of the best farmers' markets in New Zealand, Matakana is all about good food. As a result, many Matakana restaurants and venues take pride in serving organic, farm-to-table produce. 

With its rolling hills and homegrown hospitality, we believe that Matakana is one of the most beautiful regions in which to get married. 

Not only do you have wedding venues such as The Farmer's Daughter and Woodhouse Mountain Lodge to select from, but you and your guests can also enjoy the many delights that the region has to offer. 

With that, why not spend the weekend?

From a sculpture walk and long lunch at Brick Bay to a day of snorkelling at Goat Island - the Matakana Coast is full of hidden gems to keep your guests busy the day before or after the wedding. 

Accommodations vary from boutique villas such as Plume to bach-style accommodations like Riverside Matakana. Airbnb and Bachcare also offer many beautiful homes for rent. 

Matakana is in good company with Omaha, Leigh, Tawharanui, and Snells Beach, all just a stone's throw away. 

For a dreamy wedding destination just an hour's drive from Auckland, Matakana has your name on it.
