Larnach Castle is the jewel in the crown of Dunedin for location, history and beauty. Our picturesque setting makes every wedding day we host special and unique.
Our beautiful gardens make the idyllic setting for a ceremony and our gracious ballroom represents the epitome of style and sophistication.
Your Wedding Ceremony can take place in one of the many picturesque locations in the wonderful gardens around the Castle.
Favoured spots include the Rock Garden on the Ballroom Lawn, the Reflecting Pond with Dunedin City framed in the background, the Alice lawn or under the beautiful 1930s Cupola near the herbaceous border. The Castle offers you not only a stunning and romantic venue but also a high standard of service and quality.
Wedding ceremonies and photographs at Larnach Castle and Larnach Castle Gardens are exclusively available only to couples hosting their reception at Larnach Castle.
The Ballroom features period architecture, glorious furnishings, magnificent chandeliers, baronial open fires, and a polished sprung dance floor. The Ballroom is able to accommodate between 80 and 180 people in a variety of settings that can be coordinated to your requirements.
There is also the option of adding a Marquee to the side of the ballroom; this increases the capacity to 270. The lower veranda of the Castle is the perfect area for the pre-dinner drinks and canapés.
The ballroom is complemented by a cloakroom, fully fitted bar and modern washroom facilities.
