Weddings & Events

The French Country House provides the perfect luxury Tauranga wedding venue 

Focused on You

We invite the bridal couple to be intimately involved in the arrangements for their special day. With consultation we will dress our venue to reflect the rustic elegance that is the signature of the French Country House. You may choose to arrange your own caterer or we can organise this along with a choice of menus. Our caterers are very experienced in fine cuisine and very adaptable to your requirements.

The Venue

Our wedding reception area is situated on the ground floor and reflects the ambiance of the house with natural undressed timbers, crystal chandeliers, and a roaring log fire if the chill of the night descends. The room opens out to our gardens. No round tables and skirted chairs, rather brocaded long tables dressed with an abundance of flora.

As part of the celebration, it is our custom that the bride along with her attendants spend the night before the wedding in the house. The luxury of the sumptuous surroundings promote a time of peaceful reflection.

Planning Service

To help take the stress out of planning your wedding, we offer a complimentary wedding planning service and can highly recommend caterers, photographer, hairdresser, makeup artist, and celebrant for you if required.
