Say ‘I Do’ in the dream location

Found your perfect partner and now you're looking for your perfect wedding venue? Whether it's a romantic elopement, an intimate union or a legendary ceremony in front of everyone you know we have the location for you. With an outdoor bar dubbed the "Champagne shack", large patio complete with an open fire, lawn games as well as first class staff, we are ready to assist you in creating the wedding of your dreams.

The Venue

Just 30 minutes west of Timaru in a picturesque limestone valley, our vineyard oasis nestled beneath rolling hills provides not only privacy but endless backdrops to capture the perfect image. It's a photographers paradise. As you and your guests enter the property, you will be guided past sweeping lawns, the historic Clifton Cottage and of course an abundance of grape vines.

Woodland Chapel. This dreamy outdoor space comes complete with an outdoor log arbour beneath a treetop canopy reminiscent of a natural chapel. It’s a favourite amongst our couples with its vineyard backdrop.

Clifton Oaks. The meadow like lawns with a cluster of magical oaks providing privacy is excellent being able to comfortably hold a large amount of guests while maintaining intimacy.

Fern Creek. For those smaller ceremonies; tucked away surrounded by natives, ferns and a stand of stunning trees that provide a shady intimate space where birdsong and the sound of water provide the perfect backdrop for your vows.

The Food

Our culinary team and ourselves are die hard foodies who insist on the best. We opt for seasonal fresh ingredients and source as much as we can from local producers.

We understand that every wedding is unique and food is a main component, that is why we offer a range of flexible catering options. From grazing tables, to platters, canapes, buffets and everything in between we can cater to your budget and your vision.

The Drinks

No Wedding Day is complete without also taking care of your beverage service! We here at Opihi Vineyard completely understand how important this aspect is to many guests and therefore are always focusing on offering you the very best bar service we can. We like to design our bar service with your Wedding day in mind and with our brand-new bar The Champagne Shack and enthusiastic staff we certainly have all the tools required to do so!
