Set in 30 acres of park grounds and only minutes from central Christchurch, Riccarton House offers a beautiful feel and unique atmosphere for your wedding. Built in 1856 by the Deans family, the heritage homestead offers a warm and intimate haven for your friends and family to enjoy your special day.

Along with receptions in the homestead, Riccarton House can offer stunning marquees on their back lawn.

There are a number of locations, both inside and outside, to choose from for your ceremony, each area provides a beautiful backdrop for you to exchange your vows. In the Rose Garden courtyard, on the Marquee lawn under one of the magnificent trees, or even a very unique option of having the ceremony in the centre of the bush itself surrounded by 600 year old Kahikatea trees.
