Copthorne Hotel and Resort Solway Park

Country I do’s

Gorgeous landscapes, huge skies and beautiful light… this is the ambience of the Wairarapa. In the heart of this stunning region, you will find Copthorne Solway Park.


Within 24 acres of landscaped parklands and native bush, the rose garden provides a romantic setting for you to exchange your vows. Walk through the archway and into a fragrant rose garden of whites and yellows and down a box-hedged aisle to our garden gazebo where your ceremony awaits. If the weather is unkind then the naturally-lit timber ceilings of our function spaces can be enhanced with archway, registry table and music for an intimate service inside. You can place your confidence in us, knowing that your special day will run smoothly and stress-free. On the day the team at Copthorne Solway Park will work together to provide a blend of thoughtful service and superb attention to detail. Our wedding consultants are available to you at no extra cost to help create your vision for a memorable day and will equip you with a list of preferred providers.


From small and intimate weddings to groups of up to 300 you can make our flexible function spaces your own. We will take care of everything for you leaving you to mix, mingle and dance the night away with your guests.


Bridal couples enjoy complimentary accommodation on their wedding night and a room service breakfast the following morning when they book one of our wedding packages. As a Qualmark Four Star Plus hotel and resort, we offer affordable accommodation rates for wedding guests up to 230 and special bed and breakfast rates. We recommend you reserve your guest rooms well in advance and encourage your guests to then make their individual bookings direct. All our newly-refurbished rooms feature natural high country décor and fresh landscape art and photography by local Wairarapa artists. They offer the complete package in comfort and stylish design and are appointed with free car-parking, free Wi-Fi, patios, multi-channel SKY TV, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, iron, ironing board and hairdryer.

At the Copthorne Solway Park, we recognise the significance of your wedding day. That’s why we have a dedicated team who can create a wedding which is distinctively you. Your “big day” can be as unique and special as your love with a personalised celebration totally inspired by you!
