Tipapa Estate boasts a premium Canterbury wedding venue and location for family celebrations and private events. If you need an event or wedding venue, this Canterbury oasis ticks all the boxes. Surrounded by 500 acres of park-like grounds and cradled by the rolling hills of North Canterbury, the historic Woolshed and Homestead offer a secluded and exclusive part of New Zealand for your special day.
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, the Tipapa Estate is a North Canterbury find offering a meticulously restored, character-filled Woolshed and Homestead for indoor events, while the beautiful grounds are an ideal location for a garden wedding ceremony or Continental marquee style reception. The Woolshed seats up to 130 guests for functions and the historic Homestead is offered to bridal parties for exclusive use over the period of a wedding. Continental can offer you an exquisite menu based on local flavours and ingredients to complement this beautiful setting and providing you with the whole package for your wedding or event.
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. Then compliment this unique experience with some local Canterbury Catering through Continental.
