Wedding packages and prices Ngā utu kawenga mārena

Our two affordable wedding packages include everything you need for a smooth-running wedding, from venue hire to wait staff, beverages to a three-course meal, there’re no hidden costs! 

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.

We are able to run weddings from December to March. Our packages are for a minimum of 50 people and include GST.
