a wedding at waimarino

We can provide an amazing resource for wedding planning. We are able to assist with many different requirements to ensure your wedding day in Tauranga is as unique and special as you could imagine.

The following gives an indication of the additional wedding venue facilities and services we are able to provide:

Wedding Catering

Waimarino’s preferred caterers are Lemongrass Catering, Food By Design and The Big Smoke BBQ Co. The food quality, reliability and service are exceptional and Waimarino is proud to be associated with such reliable wedding service providers. We do permit other wedding caterers upon individual requests. We have terms and conditions that must be met to ensure safe operation and due care of the kitchen facilities.

Wedding Refreshments

Our venue is currently unlicensed, so you are welcome to purchase & supply all of the non-alcoholic and alcoholic refreshments for your reception at supermarket or liquor wholesaler prices. We have a BYO surcharge of $8 per person: included in this charge is the set-up of a bar with cubed ice in half barrels for the beer & white wine and our staff member will perform the bar person duties & maintain the stocks of chilled drinks. If you would like to also have table service for drinks, please let us know and we will provide more hospitality trained staff to do this.

Kid's Club

Waimarino is able to offer a fun childcare service using our qualified staff from our government approved childcare programme, OSCAR and Waimarino Education Trust. They are enthusiastic, flexible with your day’s plans and excellent role models. The ages we accept are 5-14 years.

Internet/ Skype Calls

Waimarino has wireless internet available upon request. This is a fantastic way to have Skype phone calls internationally with friends and family who are unable to be at the ceremony / reception. Bring your own laptop, plug it in and talk away. This connects directly to the surround sound system and data projector unit included in package price.


Waimarino is also able to co-ordinate many transport options. We are a Transport Service License holder. Please talk to us directly about any requirements you have regarding transport. We are able to offer coach and small passenger vehicle transport. Royal Coaches are our main provider for coaches. They are able to offer small to large coaches with standards matching your requirements.
