Mahana Weddings

The Ultimate Marriage Destination

Welcome to Mahana Weddings – a venue set in the beautiful surroundings of Mahana Estates (formerly Woollaston Estates). For marriages and vow renewals, Mahana is one the most spectacular year-round wedding venues in the top of the South Island, New Zealand.

The winery and wedding venue are located in the hills of Mahana (meaning “warm place” in Maori and the name for the land where the vineyard is situated). Just half an hour from Nelson in the old apple growing region, the venue overlooks our vineyards with views of the mountains and the sea. Mahana is a stylish and elegant setting in which to create a special day that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Your ceremony will take place on one of our lawns and your reception will be held in The Cellars. If you are looking for the premier luxury wedding destination, then look no further than Mahana Estates.

"Doug and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your wonderful staff for helping to create Jo’s dream wedding. She often said how amazing you were to deal with... how friendly, helpful, fun yet very professional you were. We were so happy they chose Woollaston as their venue as it is so stunning and picturesque. On October 20th it was so perfect. THANK YOU. We now look back with wonderful memories and know Jo and Mike were so happy. The photos so far look amazing. THANK YOU for all your organising and planning. Cheers and Good Luck. Hope we get to enjoy another event organised by you at Woollaston soon. We will be recommending you to all."

"We are now back in London, and it all seems like a dream. You really are amazing and how you keep it altogether – we have no idea.
150 guests and not one hitch – it all ran so smoothly due to your beautiful coordination with
the planning before hand and on the day. Thank you!!"
