This venue located 20 minutes drive from Wellington City (through Karori) and 10 minutes from Johnsonville. The roads to the farm are narrow in places, so going via Johnsonville is the preferred route for me, as this is the shorter distance on the minor roads.

This farm is a perfect countryside setting for wedding, being located in the lovely Ohariu valley. At the farm there is also access to some unique activities, like clay shooting and archery, should you decide on a longer stay at Ohariu.

On good days the wedding is normally held outside, with the guests looking towards the hills, having their backs to the venue. There are two rooms inside, so an indoor ceremony is possible for smaller groups.

Overnight accommodation onsite is limited, but a lovely cottage can be booked for the bridal couple, or other guests if required. This is also a lovely spot for pictures away from the rest of the guests.

There is also another garden by the old wool shed and is available to couples even if they don’t book the cottage. Complete with an old bench among the flowers and some nice stone steps through the rockery. The grounds are well maintained and make an ideal location for wedding photographs.

The old wool shed provides a different, more rustic look for your pictures and some old gates and fencing by a huge old tree can be beautiful backdrops when photographed correctly.
