Thinking about weddings and are considering an outside boutique ceremony? Something a little more personal.

Why not choose a garden wedding at Turret Lodge and make use of the enclosed courtyard or a garden wedding?

Turret Lodge is a wonderful Wedding Venue, because of the beautiful grounds and majestic homestead, is an ideal venue for a country garden wedding.

Say your nuptials in the garden or the homestead. Enjoy a fabulous wedding banquet in the filtered shade of the trees, or in a marquee on the expansive oval lawn or maybe in the workshop.

Boutique Bed and breakfast accommodation for bridal party and / or guests. Great photo opportunities.  An excellent venue for live music

Enquiries and viewing welcome.

Together we can make it the wedding of choice ~ your choice. The ceremony to suit your budget and needs.

Turret Lodge is the ideal venue to have an intimate wedding. The bridal party and some guests could stay overnight in our guest rooms, to make it a family affair.

We have our own host Celebrant, or you can choose your own celebrant from the many CANZ members in the region.

Our host Celebrant is Graeme Procter

“I am a celebrant registered with the NZ Government department of Births, Deaths and Marriages and a member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand. I am often described as having a very relaxed persona and am very easy to get along with . My whole point is that the day is about you and not me. I have performed traditional weddings and not so traditional weddings.  I will conduct your ceremony your way, its your wedding. The day should reflect what you desire, I will take care of the legal side and you do the rest!”  127a Wanganui Road, Marton 4788 New Zealand 027836461

Congratulations you have decided to get married or renew your wedding vows. Turret Lodge is the perfect venue for your intimate wedding ceremony. We can offer from a simple ceremony right through to a full traditional wedding – its what you want is what counts.

Some ideas to consider:

You have made the decision and want or need everything done for you. Try this for an idea.

Day one; On arrival at Turret Lodge you will be offered a complimentary glass of wine. I will show you around the grounds and go over your ceremony with you – this involves me finding out about you as a couple.  Dinner is included for you – a home cooked meal.  You relax in your own room with sitting area overlooking the garden.

Day two; A relaxing morning, come down for a continental breakfast when you are ready. Take all the time you need getting ready for your wedding day.  At an agreed time, we will start your ceremony and you become the person you always wanted to be; the husband/wife of your beloved.  We celebrate with an afternoon tea or light lunch, and champagne.  Spend the remainder of the day sitting, strolling, walking with each other and delight in each other’s company.   Dinner is included on the evening.


Day three; Wake up as the new you with your husband/wife by your side and dream of the future.  Come down for a continental breakfast when you are ready.  You have the morning to decide what you will do on your first full day as a married couple.  We wish you well and wave you goodbye.
