Greenmantle Estate (214 State Highway One, Paraparaumu)
Greenmantle Estate is a luxurious two storey lodge situated on the beautiful Kapiti Coast. The grounds have lush gardens and are surrounded by native birds—a perfect backdrop for outdoor weddings.
Greenmantle Estate is best suited for smaller, intimate weddings. Couples can either say “I do” in either the English-style gardens outside or inside the Nikau Chapel. While you take photos in the picturesque setting, guests can enjoy their time walking around the gardens.
For the reception, it’s usually set in the candlelit, silk-lined marquee on the pool terrace for up to 30 guests. The other option is to have a formal dinner for 12 of your closest friends and family inside. Beverages, which are from the estate’s cellar list, are charged on consumption, and this includes table service and glassware.
To hire the Greenmantle Estate, it costs $6,000 not including the per person cuisine fee. This does include up to 10 ceremony chairs, a gift and cake table, fresh cut flowers, tealights, and hurricane lanterns. Everything will also be coordinated by the wedding director and staff—set up and breakdown. Luxurious accommodation is available for the couple with a superb breakfast the following morning.
