Weddings

The Village Centre is a popular Wedding venue as our heritage Church provides a beautiful backdrop to your ceremony. You can also cater your Reception in the adjacent Hall, adding touches of your own personality to your special day.

Wedding photos can be taken against our gorgeous historic buildings or Mt Eden Maungawhau. Alternatively the Auckland Domain, Wintergardens, Eden Garden and the maunga itself are close by for your special photos of the day.

Fees

Weddings in the Church are $575.00, which includes access for a one hour rehearsal during the week before the ceremony and the use of the Church on the wedding day for two hours. The fee does not include the cost of a celebrant.

Please note the consumption of food and drinks is not permitted in the Church. Food and drinks can only be served in the Foyer, the Hall and the Lounge
