Okuti Garden is a beautiful, relaxed, flexible venue, near Little River, less than an hour from Christchurch. It includes overnight accommodation for up to 16 people in yurts, tipis and house truck. The maximum number for the celebration during the day and evening is 55.
If you choose to have your wedding here, the venue will be yours for a minimum of two days and two nights. That way you can settle in, make the place your own, do your own decorating and setting up without feeling in a hurry. We think that the making of the wedding is part of the fun, particularly if you get friends and family involved. In addition to the yurts and tipis, you'll have the use of a marquee, gazebo, earth brick studio, garden kitchen and all the magical spaces around the garden. People often choose a small circle of trees in the middle of the garden as the place for their ceremony.
"Imagine the trees, meadows and quiet pathways of Hobbiton on a golden afternoon, then add bellbirds and discreet luxury accommodation under canvas. The place is unique, with a curiously timeless and otherworldly quality." Latitude Magazine
The cost is $3,000 for two days (and nights). This includes overnight accommodation for up to 15 people and some limited space for camping. (The maximum number of people for the celebration during the day and evening is 60.)
