We handle the smallest weddings with exactly the same care and attention to detail as we do our very largest.
Obviously, with a small wedding we need to be aware of the impact of this on other guests so certain conditions apply.
- A minimum of five suites (10 guests) and a maximum of ten suites (20 guests) must be booked in order to hold a wedding without a requirement to take exclusive-use of the entire Lodge. For weddings of this size, where other guests will also be staying at Huka Lodge, it is not possible to have entertainment and dancing.
- We have also staged very small, intimate weddings for guests at The Owner's Cottage with seated dining for ten, and the Alan Pye Cottage with seated dining for eight.
Exclusive-use of the entire Lodge ensures the following wedding scenarios are all possible.
- Full Lodge: 58 guests accommodated within 26 suites (on a double/twin occupancy basis) – 20 Junior Lodge Suites, the two-suite Alan Pye Cottage and the four-suite Owner's Cottage and utilising six single occupancy Mini-Suites. Additional guests staying off-site can also attend the wedding bringing the total number to 70.
- Full Lodge with less than 58 guests for an exclusive-use wedding is also possible, however the tariff for the suites not occupied by guests will be charged, less the food component.
