Larnach Castle

Larnach Castle is the jewel in the crown of Dunedin for location, history and beauty.

Our picturesque setting makes every wedding day we host special and unique.

Consider... the beautiful scenic drive from Dunedin... transporting you to another world... arrival at the Castle... a lone piper playing... entering the spectacular Ballroom, the chandeliers sparkling, candles glowing, fires roaring, a delicious meal awaiting and our attentive staff at your service.

Wedding Ceremony

Your Wedding Ceremony can take place in one of the many picturesque locations in the wonderful gardens around the Castle. Favoured spots include the Rock Garden on the Ballroom Lawn, the Reflecting Pond with Dunedin City framed in the background, the Alice lawn or under the beautiful 1930s Cupola near the herbaceous border

Wedding ceremonies and photographs at Larnach Castle and Larnach Castle Gardens are exclusively available only to couples hosting their reception at Larnach Castle.

The Ballroom

The Ballroom features period architecture, glorious furnishings, magnificent chandeliers, baronial open fires, and a polished sprung dance floor. The Ballroom is able to accommodate between 80 and 180 people in a variety of settings that can be coordinated to your requirements.

There is also the option of adding a Marquee to the side of the ballroom; this increases the capacity to 270. The lower veranda of the Castle is the perfect area for pre-dinner drinks and canapés.
