The Hayes Room

The main reception venue at Stoneridge Estate is a fantastical location like no other in New Zealand. Entering through our exquisitely-manicured gardens with panoramic views of the lake and mountains, the majestic setting will take your guests' breath away from the moment they arrive, and provides a dramatic backdrop to your perfect day. 

Constructed throughout from soaring hardwood beams and reclaimed stone and slate, the very venue itself is infused with a historical charm; atmospheric lighting is provided by the ornate wrought-iron chandelier and wall sconces, and the stunning gothic window lends a romantic touch. Choose to create your own look by adding flourishes and embellishments, or simply take advantage of your unique surrounds.

On a crisp winter's day, gaze out over the spectacular snow-capped peaks as your guests mingle by the roaring open fire; in summertime, throw open the bi-folding doors and soak up the ambiance of the stunning patio and gardens with a glass of the Estate's boutique wine, then dance the nights away as the sun sets and the candles glow. Whatever the season, we can make your wedding night unforgettable.
