About Us



Voted one of the world’s top 10 barn wedding venues, Tarureka Estate is a wedding venue in the Wairarapa, one hour north of Wellington. The beautiful homestead and historic barn on the 8 acre estate offer everything you need for your wedding weekend or winter getaway. The seven bedroom, two-storey 130 year old homestead accommodates 18 guests, and Tarureka Cottage is perfect for the bride and her entourage to stay in and use for prep on the wedding day.

The sensitively restored Loft, is the perfect setting for your wedding, with a ceremony/banquet area upstairs and bar and dance floor area downstairs.

The Loft can accommodate seating for 120 guests and cosy wood-fired heating makes it ideal for winter as well as summer weddings.
