Your Luxury

Taupo Wedding Venue & Accommodation

Celebrate your special day at our small wedding venue and treat yourself to a night in a luxury bridal suite.

If you are looking for beautiful, small wedding venues, Kauri Point is the ideal choice. Our Taupo wedding venue has several options as a location for your ceremony.

The large expanse of lawn allows for larger ceremony numbers of 100+ guests. Or you can use the deck in front of our luxury lodge which has a covered area. We recommend this for a smaller number of ceremony guests. You may choose to hold the reception in a marquee on the grounds of our Taupo wedding venue, or perhaps have a cocktail reception in the garden while photos are being taken – the choice is yours.

If you would like to stay the night, our beautifully appointed luxurious guest rooms make for the perfect bridal suite. They could also provide a lavish backdrop for wedding photography – or you can use the lawn areas and mature gardens for beautiful nature shots.

We would welcome the opportunity to host your wedding or civil union ceremony and are happy to suggest suitable suppliers within the region.
