Park or Garden Wedding

Isel Park - is an outstanding 6 hectare woodland garden set among one of New Zealand’s finest collections of mature exotic trees planted in the mid-1800’s including several trees that are the largest of their kind in New Zealand. Although Isel Park is beautiful year round the mass plantings of woodland bulbs and herbaceous perennials are at their best in spring (September/October) when the renowned rhododendron collection and azaleas are in bloom.

Queens Gardens - is a classical Victorian ornamental park featuring outstanding specimens of many historic and rare trees and a collection of David Austin roses. A native bush walk and fernery exhibiting over 100 different species of ferns and large ponds among the trees all create a special quiet environment in the city.

Washbourn Gardens - is composed of traditional show gardens featuring large, mature trees, sweeping lawns, perennial borders and beds of annuals and roses. Washbourn also features a newly-built pergola, ideal for weddings and photos.
