Cairn Cottage is Canterbury’s newest wedding venue, just a 20 minute drive from central Christchurch. Come and discover the tranquil, rustic and spacious rural setting.

Take advantage of the many great dates we still have available in 2021/22.

Price: $2000


Cairn Cottage is the ultimate, all under one roof wedding venue.

Have your ceremony in the beautiful grounds with stunning views across to Mount Grey (Maukatere). Our brand new purpose built barn is an ideal reception location, just across the lawn from the ceremony. It also provides a valuable wet weather ceremony option should the weather intervene.

Official photos can be taken throughout the grounds with many options including: peony rose gardens, daffodil gardens, wedding arch, cobb cottage ruin and rustic bridge.

Petanque, Kubb and lawn skittles provide entertainment for guests while official photos are taken, or keep restless children distracted.
