“We both come from big Greek families, so it was important to us to find a venue to share the memories of our wedding reception with people that have been with us for all our lives – there is no venue big enough that was able to fit 240 people – so the Amokura room was perfect.
“It was also amazing! Te Papa has its own catering as well as connections with other known vendors in Wellington to help make the reception a night to remember for all of us.”
– Melpo Toulis
