The Colour of Love
Enjoy a perfect summers day as the sun sets over the distant city when you marry in this gorgeous rural setting in Riverhead near Auckland. If any venue perfectly lives up to its name, it must be Lavender Hill. Every December and January its slopes are alive with the purple and blue flowers. Imagine them as a backdrop. Now a member of the Tui Hills Group of wedding venues, Lavender Hill hosts marquee weddings each summer, starting in October 2020.
That Country Feeling
Catering for up to 60 guests, you can feel the country vibe on this rural lifestyle block with lavender, olive trees, sheep and alpacas. Dine outdoors or in our clear-sided marquee. Enjoy the views back towards the city as the sun sets.
Stay and Enjoy the Day
The Lavender Hill “Barn” is the perfect place for you to prepare for your wedding day and then relax afterwards. The wedding party enjoys accommodation for the nights before and after the big day. There are four double bedrooms with two lounge areas, kitchen and patio.
Dining at Lavender Hill showcases the best of fresh local ingredients, with a contemporary New Zealand style and plenty of choices – all created by the dedicated team from the Tui Hills Kitchen, lead by Head Chef David O’Leary.
Choose from plated or cocktail-style dining options, showcasing local produce. The three standard menus are Kiwi (familiar favourites with a twist), Tui (gourmet, with BBQ options) and Kereru (premium menu for foodies).
The Choice Is Yours
Wedding packages and prices to suit a wide range of preferences and pockets.
The Classic Wedding
Lavender Hill is the perfect backdrop for an event that you and/or your wedding planner will choreograph to be a unique experience.
Use of Lavender Hill’s’ catering and bar is part of the package, but apart from that you decide what goes.
The menu can be chosen from ones already prepared for the venue, or you can work with our chef to create your own.
You decide on all other suppliers, whether they’re recommended by us or come from further afield, including family and friends.
The Classic Plus
We organise the tables, seating and tableware. Our florist looks after the table flowers according to the style you select.
That leaves you to choose the menu and select and organise the rest of the suppliers.
Planning your wedding takes just a few days with the Concierge package. We do most of the organising while you choose the celebrant, photographer, cake, music and bridal flowers from lists of recommended suppliers – all with minimal stress.
Each wedding package includes 2 nights accommodation (4 double bedrooms) for the wedding party
All food and drink (except wedding cake)is provided by the Tui Hills Kitchen and the Lavender Bar
On August 19, 2013 the Marriage Amendment Act made it possible for New Zealanders to marry regardless of sexual orientation. It’s a date to be celebrated.
We look forward to seeing many same-sex couples marrying at Lavender Hill in the coming years.
