Voted one of the world’s top 10 barn wedding venues, Tarureka Estate is a wedding and conference venue in the Wairarapa, one hour north of Wellington. The beautiful houses and historic barn on the 8 acre estate offer everything you need for your wedding weekend, special event, mini-break or winter getaway. The sensitively restored historic barn “The Loft” is the perfect setting for your country wedding, with a chapel/banquet area upstairs and bar and dance floor downstairs. The Loft can accommodate 120 guests for a sit-down banquet and wood-fired heating makes it ideal for winter as well as summer weddings. We are thrilled that it is now almost as popular in the winter – because we believe it is the perfect winter wedding venue. The cosy wood fire ensures that everyone is very warm, no matter what the weather outside, and the sparkling lights and glowing totara beams create a wonderfully romantic atmosphere.
