Why a Wanaka Wedding?

The picturesque town of Lake Wanaka in New Zealand’s South Island is one of the world’s most romantic places to have a wedding. Wanaka is situated in Central Otago with dramatic mountain ranges and crystal clear waters.

The township of Wanaka has a population of just under 9000 people. It lies at 300 metres above sea level in New Zealand’s gorgeous South Island. The lakeside town is a charming place to stay, nestled on the eastern side of the Southern Alps in a landscape of natural beauty and close to productive farmland and a growing viticulture industry.

There is no shortage of things to do in Wanaka and the sorrounding area. Whether it is the shops, cafe, restaurants, vineyards or lake side chilling to walking, biking, skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding… the list is endless.

Enjoy a Wanaka wedding any season of the year

Wanaka has an continental climate – ensuring dry hot weather in Summer and cool sunny days in Winter when the mountains stand proud under their layer of snow. Autumn days are full of colour, and in spring the new growth gives a freshness to the landscape. Wanaka is beautiful at any time of the year.

Choosing Wanaka as your wedding destination means that your guests can combine it with a holiday in this beautiful part of the country. Wanaka is a hub of tourist activities and it is a short drive to Queenstown and all it has to offer. 

Your Wanaka wedding celebrations will be an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
