The Riverhead - The Boat House

The Boat House is quite simply one of Auckland’s best-kept secrets.

Only 20 minutes from central Auckland nestled on the banks of the upper Waitemata overlooking the water, The Boat House offers an unpretentious yet adorable and unique wedding setting.

Say "I do" under our ancient oak tree on the manicured grass. We take the angst out of having an outdoor wedding with our permanent marquee right there for you. Should it rain, we simply swap you into the marquee for the ceremony but it’s excellent for guests to mix and mingle both before and after the ceremony. Congratulatory canapes and bubbles create a garden party vibe after the ceremony and for your guests to enjoy should you go off-site for photos. However, if you choose, there are plenty of ideal backdrops onsite.

Once you are ready, The Boat House is opened for your grand entrance for the first time as a married couple. The room makes a statement with our tortured oak tables enhancing your decorations set out under the magnificent flower chandeliers. Your guests will love their meals prepared by our team of chefs renowned for their delicious banquet dinners with our set menu giving you a wide choice. Once the formalities are over, it’s party time! The simple move to the 'blue room and bar' changes the dynamic to one of joyous celebration.

A wedding at The Boat House is almost like a progressive wedding. Starting with the ceremony on the grass, canapes in the marquee and gazebos, reception in the white room, the afterparty in the blue room and clear top conservatory all with plenty of space to find a quiet spot to chat to family & friends.

The best thing about a wedding in The Boat House is that it offers the flexibility to be exactly how you envision it to be.
