Hi – Is anyone here from New Zealand? My partner and I are getting married in ChCh in January and still haven’t decided on a venue. We are going to ChCh in couple of weeks and need to make a decision while we are there, but since the earthquakes so much has changed – any suggestions on a great location?

Well I’ve never been to Christchurch but you should check out stuff.co.nz . In the life & style section they have a wedding section where they showcase one wedding each week. It seems like they have an abundance of chch weddings. Also, an acquaintance had his wedding at Peppers Clearwater Resort. I didn’t go but the photos are stunning. Good luck!

I am in Christchurch – we got married in Hanmer Springs but there are still a number of venues here, although some have closed. I actually saw an ad today for a new venue that is going to be all-inclusive and is opening later this year but cant remember name off the top of my head. How many people are you having and I can probably give you some suggestions This site also lists quite a few http://www.perfectvenue.co.nz/
If you need any other vendors – flowers/makeup/band/cake/photographer/decoration rentals I can also give some recommendations.

Meggy, so funny – I’m from Chicago but married a kiwi from CHC on 31 Dec, 2012, in CHC. Did you find a venue? How have you guys been doing for finding housing for out of town guests?
And Jennifer, could you post the suggestions you had? Wondering if we have overlap on vendors – might have some questions 🙂
Thanks – sort of sad I only discovered these boards now, they’re great! 🙂
