Weddings at Fiordland Lodge

A wedding at Fiordland Lodge is the event of a lifetime. The Main Lodge is remarkable, offering the finest accommodations and dining in a truly idyllic setting on the edge of Lake Te Anau. The romantic nature of the Lodge truly shines at a wedding. The rooms spill over with music, firelight, dancing and flowers.

The Ceremony....all afternoon weddings of 15 people and more must reserve the entire property and the possibilities for ceremony venues are limited only by your imagination. Should your numbers be 30 or less and you would like a lunch time wedding we do offer an excellent incentive rate for daytime weddings where our main restaurant is available as a private room from between 10.30am-5pm.  

The Lodge bridal lawn has spectacular lake and mountain views and acts as a glorious backdrop with the blue lapping waters of Lake Te Anau. This is a magnificent and unique location to exchange vows. Inside the Lodge the Great Room also has stunning, unobstructed views and can accommodate 100 seated guests. Flanked by huge 30 feet stone fireplaces this is an ideal room for the ceremony and acts as an excellent alternative should the weather be chilly.

The Reception can be a wild, joyous celebration or a quiet one, as you wish. Set in a World Heritage Area, Fiordland Lodge sets the scene for a day to remember; the authentic atmosphere of the lodge, the extraordinary service and the very fine cuisine make it an exceptional occasion.

Photo opportunities in and around Fiordland Lodge are endless. Unique to Fiordland Lodge, Helicopters can land directly in front of the Lodge and within minutes you can be having your wedding photos on snow-capped mountains in an ever-changing scenery of alpine lakes, waterfalls and hanging valleys.
