Getting married? Congratulations! There's nothing like a wedding, one of the most special days celebrating love with family and guests. There's also no one like the two of you! Instead of finding the nearest vineyard or whipping out the list of gardens to get hitched at, what about getting married at a wedding venue as unique as you and the love of your life? Here is a list of Auckland wedding venues to celebrate your unique wedding!
Start the school of love at a university
Most universities have spaces to host special days like networking events, award ceremonies and even fashion and art shows - so why not a wedding too? For example, AUT's Open Forum in the heart of Auckland city is a perfect place for a wedding reception, with its high glass ceiling and green feature wall (great for photos!) as well as seating, AV system run by the in-house team, and heaps of catering options to suit your needs.
All about image? Get married at a photography studio!
One of the most unusual wedding venues, studios are beautiful spaces which means less wedding decorations and a memorable experience for your guests! Take Thievery Studios in Auckland city's Karangahape Road - imagine walking down the aisle on their beautiful wooden floors and their large rustic window as backdrop for your wedding ceremony - what an image! Thievery Studios also offer photography gear (and a steamer for your dress!) for hire, which will make you a hit with your wedding photographer. It's the perfect place for the creative and cost-savvy couple.
First date at a cafe? What about your wedding too?
Showing off your white wedding dress at a cafe might be a funny nod to New Zealand's love of flat whites, but cafes are one of the best wedding venues for low-stress catering. They offer options to make you rethink your wedding reception, like having a breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea platter instead of a sit down dinner - great for guests who have young children, and great for the budget! GiLLi cafe in Auckland's Newmarket offers all of the above and has a liquor license too. Plus, they have heaps of different spaces and seating arrangements to make the venue your own.
Guests from out of of town? Get hitched at a hotel!
Hotels aren't only wedding venues with heaps of personality, but you can tick another thing off the list - having your family and guests from out of town stay at the same property. Somewhere like Hotel De Brett, nestled in Auckland's High Street, offers a beautiful Art Deco function space for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. Across the water is The Esplanade, an elegant heritage hotel in Devonport, Auckland which offers various catering options and 15 rooms on the property that guests can stay in.
Theatres - the perfect wedding venue for love better than fiction
Speaking of Devonport, The Vic is one of the most unique wedding venues in Auckland which will give your guests an experience they won't forget. The space is a vintage moving image and performing arts theatre that can be used for your unique wedding, complete with private bar and in house catering. The Garnet Station in Westmere, Auckland also has a theatre with heaps of personality to get married in, not to mention a heritage pizzeria and one of the most quirky gardens for a unique wedding reception option!
Share the love and get married at a charity space
If you don't want your wedding day to be all about you, why not get married at a charity's centre to help their cause? For example, hiring out downtown Auckland's Flagship Education Centre as your wedding venue means putting money towards Sustainable Coastlines, a New Zealand charity promoting the protection of waterways and coastlines in the country. The event space also has various catering options to suit your budget.
Finding the perfect wedding venue for your big day doesn't have to be a bore. If you lean into what makes you and the love of your life unique, think outside the box and have a bit of fun, you'll find that unusual wedding venues might actually be the best places to say 'I do'!

As a host, I love the transparency and flexibility I have with the platform, allowing us to manage bookings, guest payments and communication in one area. We get local and national enquiries from SpacetoCo for people needing a hot desk or workshop space for an hour, a day or a month, and I love that they can find Ampersand Collective without any extra work required from me!”
