How It Works

Thinking of renting out your property for weddings? Backyard Weddings  is the perfect platform that exists solely to connect couples to venue and vendor owners. 

Whether you’re new to renting out your backyard for weddings, an experienced owner-manager, or a professional property manager you’ll find Backyard Weddings  a reliable platform to connect and engage with couples looking for their perfect wedding venue.

Choose a simple annual subscription (from $249 NZD) and rest assured knowing we take $0 commission – we know how much effort goes into the wedding liaison and prep – you earned it, so you keep it.

The fact that we’re 100% dedicated to wedding venues means that we’re 100% dedicated to marketing them through a variety of channels, namely:

  • Our social media platforms (FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest)
  • Print advertising
  • Through our Tips and Articles blog
  • Media relations and influencer outreach
  • Participation in industry and local events
  • Targeted advertising

Your subscription also includes a 20% discount on photography with our incredible photographer to take professional pics of your property!

Time to get your creative juices flowing! Use our simple listing wizard to create your full-page listing. Your listing includes all the information you need to profile your property in detail: photos, text, facilities, layouts and pricing. If you need a hand writing about your venue or would like professional photos of your gardens, get in touch with us and we can help you.

It’s your property so you set the terms. Only want daytime weddings? Or no more than 20 people? That’s A-OK! Your property, your rules. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in hiring out your backyard.

You’re bound to want to change your listing over time, so you have full control and can make changes whenever you want.

Your backyard venue will show up in search results using various search criteria.

Our goal is to make the process as easy and as efficient as possible – for both parties.

Couples get in touch with you directly via our contact form, allowing you to communicate with them yourself, to answer any questions or to arrange a time that suits for them to view the venue.
You host the venue viewing and show them all the things that make your property amazing.

If the couple are keen to book your backyard for their wedding, they can book directly with you. We will still be there for you though – any questions, queries or concerns, just flick us a message and we will help you out.
