your perfect wedding weekend
Voted one of the world’s top 10 barn wedding venues, Tarureka Estate is a stunning wedding venue in the Wairarapa, one hour north of Wellington. The historic homestead, cottage and barn set in four acres of beautiful gardens offer everything you need for your wedding weekend or winter getaway. The seven bedroom, two-storey 130 year-old homestead accommodates 18 guests, and secluded Tarureka Cottage is perfect for the bride and her entourage pre-wedding and a hideaway for the bride and groom on their wedding night
The sensitively restored Loft is the perfect setting for your wedding or other event, with a banquet area for 120 upstairs and bar and dance floor area downstairs. Ceremonies can be held in one of the gardens or under the soaring, chapel-like ceiling of the Loft.
