Looking for somewhere with a bit of style? Try The Regent on Broadway in Palmerston North
Designed in the Renaissance style with an ornate vaulted ceiling and a sweeping marble staircase – perfect for photo opportunities, The Regent on Broadway could be a good option if you are seeking a bit of glamour. You can even get married on the stage.
Looking for something laid back? Try the Tui Brewery in Mangatainoka
Choose from the Tuiversity Conference Centre or the Flagon Room, a historic brick building with views of the iconic Tui Tower. And of course, Tui beer is included in the price of your venue hire.
Looking for a really central venue? Try Caccia Birch House in Palmerston North
Caccia Birch House, originally built in1895, looks over the Hokowhitu Lagoon. Use the stunning gardens for a summer wedding or one of the beautiful rooms for an indoor ceremony. This venue offers flexible catering options and is really close to the CBD so handy if you want to move onto an after-party somewhere else.
Looking for an extra helping hand? Try Wharerata at the Massey University Turitea campus in Palmerston North
Wharerata has a dedicated wedding planner waiting to help you take care of every aspect of your big day from the cake to the seating plan. Weddings can take place outdoors in the sunken rose garden or inside the turn of the century homestead building.
It can be useful to choose your Palmerston North wedding venue, as one of the first parts of your wedding plan because then you will not only be secure in knowing you have a place booked, but you can also tailor other parts of your wedding to match your chosen ceremony venue.
For example, if you are having a simple outdoor summer wedding you might want to choose a shorter train or veil or even a shorter dress, while if you are getting married somewhere dramatic, you might want to pick a dress that will make a statement in the luxurious surroundings.
