A WEDDING AT RIPPON
VINES, VIEWS AND A VARIETY OF OPTIONS
Standing atop the Rippon hill, The Rippon Hall and its surrounding spaces offer a number of options for outdoor weddings.
The natural amphitheatre, offering views out over the vines to Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps, lies adjacent to The Rippon Hall and is a popular spot for wedding ceremonies.
Closer to the lake and nestled among the vines, we have the nursery site, one of the most sheltered spots on the property. Many couples choose to exchange wedding vows down in this more private area and then continue the celebration up on the hill in The Rippon Hall.
INSIDE THE RIPPON HALL
For smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions or for winter nuptials, The Rippon Hall itself is an ideal location. The picture window at the far end of the hall offers year round views of Ruby Island and the Southern Alps while the large fireplace keeps winter chills at bay…
As a dry-hire venue, the decoration of The Rippon Hall is limited only by your imagination. We work with a number of amazing local suppliers who can provide everything from furniture to flowers and lighting to lolly stations; when you book your wedding with us, we will talk to you about the options available to you.
TWO DAYS OF RIPPON
A MORE LEISURELY PACE FOR YOUR WEDDING
When the muse strikes, you don’t want to hurry things and this wedding option gives you more time to set up The Rippon Hall exactly as you want it to be. Access to The Rippon Hall begins the day before your wedding from 9am until 5pm to enable you to hold your rehearsal and start your set up in good time. Our Events Manager will be there on the day to run through all the final preparations and help out with any queries that you may have.
ONE DAY WEDDING
KEEPING IT SIMPLE
It may be that a day is all you need to get everything in place for your wedding celebrations, in which case this will be the option for you. With set up and pack down on the day itself, the One Day Wedding option offers greater flexibility when looking at securing a date, especially during the busiest periods of the wedding season.
EXCHANGING VOWS IN A VINEYARD SETTING
Our wedding ceremony-only option includes the hire of The Rippon Hall and any outside spaces for an unlimited number of guests, with use of the catering kitchen for post-ceremony drinks and canapés, and time to take some photographs outside.
ELOPEMENT AND PHOTOGRAPHY
AN INTIMATE OPTION FOR SMALLER WEDDINGS
The Rippon Hall is the perfect spot for a quiet, intimate elopement wedding whether out in the vines or inside in front of the roaring fire. The Rippon Hall stands in a spectacular location, and the backdrop to Rippon makes for some very special wedding photographs.
