Exclusive Use

To host a wedding at Wai-iti requires you to book the venue for ‘exclusive use’. This means we do not take any other accommodation bookings and allows for your wedding to be special and private. We host weddings from late January through to early December.

We ask that the apartments are for couples only and families with children are accommodated in container or powered site accommodation due to privacy issues with cabin owners.

The point at the café is a great venue for your wedding ceremony followed by your wedding function at the licensed café. All catering is done by the café caterers and menus etc. can be arranged for you.

The cost of catering and alcohol is to be negotiated with the café leaseholder. Our café is licensed. You may continue your celebrations at the theatre where you are able to supply your own alcohol and self cater your own supper. The café caterer would be able to give you extra costs per head for supper/nibbles or brunch the next morning or you can self cater using the camp kitchen. The café is open to the public all day Sunday.

There are privately owned cabins at Wai-iti retreat and the owners come and go whenever. They have named carparks which we ask your guests not to park in.
