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. This room requirement needs to include one of the cottages, where the ceremony will be held. 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 6-8 guests, and the Alan Pye Cottage with seated dining for 8 guests.
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 Escort Rooms. Additional guests staying off-site can also attend the wedding bringing the total number to 60.
- Full Lodge with less than 58 guests for an exclusive-use wedding is also possible, however the cost for the suites not occupied by guests will be charged, less the food component.
