    When it comes to a wedding – particularly your wedding – it’s comforting to know your venue is something of a well-oiled machine. Introducing Rydges – Christchurch’s largest hotel that is exactly that.
     
    There’s a certain sense of luxury that comes with a 4.5 star hotel. Built in 2013, Rydges Latimer Christchurch sits proudly and pristinely across from the green expanse of Latimer Square. Boasting floor to ceiling windows that wrap around most of the building, the hotel soaks in the lush sight of the Square as well as views that stretch from the Port Hills to the Southern Alps. With a location that’s central to many of Christchurch’s key photographic locations (the cathedral less than half a kilometre away, and the Botanical Gardens, Mona Vale, Hagley Park, Waterfront and the Port Hills all a within a mere 20 minutes) it’s a wedding photographer’s ultimate base.
     
    The availability of several reception spaces mean the hotel can cater weddings of varied sizes with equal precision across the board – the Private Dining Room holds up to 50 seated guests, while the Ballroom holds 260 banquet-seated guests, or 500 in a cocktail context.
     
    Undeniably, one of the most notable perks of hotel weddings is the intense sense of organisation and can-do that goes hand in hand with a well-run establishment. Each pair of soon-to-be-weds enjoys the services of a dedicated wedding coordinator, who is available from the day of booking to the day of the wedding. The coordinator can facilitate factors such as scheduling specifics, styling requirements and menu requests or tastings.
     
    On the topic of catering, onsite restaurant Bloody Mary’s Bar-Lounge-Grill is a premium steakhouse known for its rich offerings of the best local and seasonal produce. Its menu forms the basis for the catering style of the independent banquet kitchen, which takes care of functions held at the hotel with the flexibility to cater for any cultural or dietary requirements.
     
    A final perk? The hotel can offer special rates for visiting wedding guests, while the couple enjoys complimentary accommodation with late checkout and a free breakfast – morning-after champagne optional.
