The finer details:

VENUE: Darjon Vineyard

Darjon Vineyard is known as a hidden North Canterbury gem – and we have all weather options covered. Outside for sunshine, inside for rain.

Meris and Phil also supply and set up ceremony chairs, wine barrel for signing, shepherd crooks with jars along the aisle, and a ceremony arch. There are also many beautiful locations around Darjon, including among the vines, for all your bridal photos to be taken.

PHOTOGRAPHER: A Wedding White Pages photographer

You have two options to choose from:

  1. 60 minutes of photos (this option comes with the package)
  2. 90 minutes of photos (choose this option from $200 more)

The time for each photography option starts at the beginning of the ceremony.

You will receive a gallery of images four weeks after your wedding, with a ‘sneak peek’ of five images within two business days.

CELEBRANT: Anna Flanagan, Beth Dunn, or Jane Godfrey

These celebrants love micro weddings! There’s something so special about inviting your closest friends and family to celebrate your love with you. We do the legal bit first, with a beautiful personalised ceremony, where you can share your own vows (which your celebrant will help with) – then you can get into the celebration straight afterwards! (NB: You can hire the celebrant’s PA for ceremony music at a cost of $25. The price of the celebrant doesn’t include your marriage licence fee of $150.)


CAKE: Twisted Flour & Sugar Merchants

You will receive a taller style 6-inch cake. Flavour choices: signature chocolate; vanilla; lemon; or white chocolate mud.

Twisted Flour offers free collection Monday to Saturday, or a delivery fee of $20.
