Nestled in Waitangi since 1837 Baylys’ Farm lies at the heart of the Bay of Islands, and is steeped in both history and natural beauty. With 2000-acres of rolling farmland sitting alongside secluded bays and private golden sand beaches, Baylys’ Farm provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding. The landscape at Baylys’ Farm allows us to cater for large or intimate events, and lends itself to compliment any style preference. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to having a unique and beautiful location for your event, having the option to choose from the following:
The Beach: Our dedicated beachfront marquee location has been crafted especially for weddings, and is privately set between farm and coastland. We have a 10 x 24m clear-span marquee for you to use at this location, and you are welcome to set-up the space as you wish. Ceremonies can also be held here, looking out over the beach.
The Point: Also located at the Beach, the Point is a naturally sloping hill-top site with uninterrupted 360-degree views out to the Bay of Islands, making it an unforgettable backdrop for your ceremony.
The Wool Shed: Our wool shed is the perfect space for a rustic barn-style reception. The building seats up to 100 people, and has toilets, a small kitchen and power. The outdoor areas adjacent to the building are also perfect for cocktail hour or an outdoor dance floor.
Our Wedding Package includes the use of the venue for your Ceremony and Reception. The Ceremony can be held anywhere on the farm, including ‘The Point’. For your Reception, you have the choice of either the Beach under our Marquee or in the Wool Shed. As a BYO venue you can choose your own food, drink, and vendors, allowing you to tailor the day exactly to your liking.
Our Wedding Package includes the following:
Wooden Bench Seats for the Ceremony
10 x 24m Clear-Span Marquee at the Beach
Wooden Dining Tables & Cross-Back Dining Chairs
Wedding Venue Coordination Before and On Event Day
Use of Farm for Photography Requirements

When using the Wool Shed for the reception the Marquee is also available at the Beach as a wet-weather option for your ceremony, as well as for shade on hot days.
