The Boatshed

Surrounded by panoramic water and cityscape views, the Boatshed offers an ideal venue for your wedding reception, ceremony or private function.

With no curfew, you can dance the night away watching the ever-changing city lights. An additional deck area between the Wellington Rowing Club and Boatshed can be booked for your ceremony or for guests to enjoy their first glass of champagne on arrival. A marquee can also be erected on the deck by Hiremaster or Carlton Party Hire. The Boatshed offers a perfect location for your wedding photographs with the historic building or the steps leading down to the lagoon as beautiful backgrounds.

When you hire The Boatshed for a wedding or private function you have the venue from 11 am on the day. The hire period extends through to 10 am the following morning to allow for the collection of any belongings or hired items from the previous night.

Capacity for a seated meal is 200 people or 300 people for a cocktail function.

We are happy to assist you with your planning and can provide advice and assistance with sourcing DJ’s, bands, florists, caterers, wedding stylists and theming companies from our list of suppliers.

Wedding Experience at the Boatshed

"The Boatshed was the perfect wedding venue for us. The location shows off Wellington’s beautiful waterfront and cityscape. The Boatshed had all the facilities we could have wanted. Our visitors from around NZ and overseas raved about the wonderful scenery and experience The Boatshed provided for our wedding. The team at The Boatshed were very accommodating and easy to deal with. They took the hassle out of organising a wedding venue by communicating regularly with us and helping us with the special touches that made our day unique and perfect." - Camille Jaspers and Neil Furnandiz
