The Wedding Venue of your Dreams

Poronui must be one of the most idyllic wedding reception venues available in New Zealand.  Set in 16,000 acres of incredibly beautiful wilderness and landscaped gardens, Poronui was originally a fishing outpost that has been augmented, lovingly restored and richly furnished to be the perfect location for the wedding venue of your dreams.

Tailor Made Wedding Receptions

Poronui is totally different to most wedding reception venues. You won't be forced to choose between wedding reception packages with set itineraries, decorations, menus and prices. Your wedding day is personal, and something that you will want to cherish forevermore; that's why the people at Poronui will work with you to develop a completely personalised wedding day, or even whole weekends, to match your desires and budget.

A Choice of Wedding Experiences

You could have exclusive access to Poronui for the day, including the grounds and the luxurious owner’s residence - Blake House. If you have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding reception then Poronui can provide you with a wonderful marquee in the landscaped grounds adjacent to The Stables complex, decorated to suit your taste and colour scheme.  Perhaps you would prefer the atmospheric underground wine cellar for a more intimate wedding breakfast, or even the indoor and outdoor spaces at Blake House. 

Check out some of the different options in our photo gallery of some previous weddings at Poronui.
