Tipapa Estate – Historic Woolshed Function Centre & Homestead

Canterbury wedding venues & location for events

Tipapa Estate boasts premium Canterbury wedding venues and locations for family celebrations and private events. If you need an event and wedding venue, Canterbury oasis Tipapa Estate ticks all the boxes: cradled by the rolling hills of North Canterbury, the private Homestead and historic Woolshed are surrounded by 500 acres and park-like grounds.

Tipapa Estate is situated one hour’s drive north of Christchurch, and within 15 minutes of the Waipara wine growing region.

With integrated private events and wedding venues, Canterbury gem Tipapa Estate offers a meticulously restored, character-filled Woolshed and Homestead for indoor events, while the beautiful grounds are an ideal location for a garden wedding ceremony. The Woolshed seats functions for up to 130 guests and the historic Homestead is offered to bridal parties for exclusive use over the period of a wedding.

Coach tour groups are welcome

For visiting tour groups, this venue is the ideal setting for a beautiful lunch with a guest speaker. Invite a local wine maker to present on the best of the Waipara Valley wines or perhaps an historian to speak on the significant contribution this property has made toward the development of the Canterbury sheep industry.
