At Mt Vernon, you can have an unforgettable ceremony, a custom-designed reception, and stylish accommodation for you and your guests, all within the beautiful surroundings of our estate. And the next day, you’ll have time to catch up with old friends, and enjoy the scenery.
You can hold everything onsite, from your ceremony to your photographs to your reception to your accommodation. And the best bit, they’re all an easy walking distance away. Once you arrive, pack away your car keys and enjoy your stay.
Mt Vernon’s sweeping lawns, with their stunning views over Akaroa Harbour, offer the perfect setting in which to make your vows. Of course, they also provide an ideal backdrop for your photographs, so there’s no need to leave your guests behind – friends and family can enjoy drinks and canapés, wander around the grounds, or even retreat to their own rooms if they so desire, until it’s time for the day’s proceedings to continue.
With us, your reception can be as formal or as informal as you want it to be – whether it’s a silver-service dinner for 100, or a BBQ on the lawn for 10. We are a BYO Venue, we don’t charge you corkage, we only charge a small per person fee to cover our costs. We have a choice of caterers, or you can cater for yourselves in our full commercial kitchen, and we also offer full glass and equipment hire, should you need it. Or you may wish to choose from our range of menus, created by top local chefs, and let us do the rest.
