Beach Weddings – What you need to know
Waiheke Event Hire offers a full service beach wedding package, including location advice for public and less accessible beaches, liaison with council, permits and marquee and furniture hire.
Not every beach is suitable for weddings, particularly during the high summer season. We are locals with knowledge of the best public and more private beaches, any restrictions which may be in place and details such as access and of course, tides.
Much as we like to boast about Waiheke’s micro climate and glorious long hot summer days, you are likely to need weather protection for your wedding ceremony (or have a back up venue already arranged). Searing sun can be equally as uncomfortable as a downpour, but with a marquee you will be protected from almost any weather eventuality, and have some privacy.
We have excellent relationships with the local council and parks management and can help you understand any restrictions there may be, or permissions required to get married in a public space.
Wedding Ceremony and Reception Packages
We are happy to recommend suitable venues and locations for your wedding reception or celebrations after your beach ceremony, whether a large vineyard or more intimate private room at a local restaurant close to the beach. We work with Waiheke’s best wedding planners who also offer Find A Venue or Full Service packages.
