Church of the Good Shepherd Weddings New Zealand

The Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Tekapo has captured the hearts of couples from all over the world and is a quaint and unassuming but enormously romantic venue for your New Zealand wedding. The Church sits literally only metre's from the shores of the turquoise coloured, glacier-fed Lake Tekapo and a large panoramic window behind the altar is deliberately clear to allow uninterrupted lake and mountain views.

Situated in the beautiful Mackenzie Country, Lake Tekapo Village is an easy 3 hours drive from the South Island city of Christchurch or 3½ hours drive from Queenstown. 

While it is vested in the Anglican Church, it has always been used by the various denominations in the Mackenzie area and is one of three churches in the Mackenzie Cooperating Parish, a partnership between Anglican and Presbyterian churches. It is also possible to have a Catholic wedding at the Church.
