The Herb Farm venue is unique in the Manawatu region and offers the perfect place for a memorable wedding. The beautiful gardens offer a stunning setting for a garden ceremony.

Create your dream wedding

We have two acres of display gardens and you can choose a location that you love and that suits your wedding size. Enjoy nibbles and drinks in the gardens after your ceremony and guests can relax and mingle in the tranquil garden setting.

Complete your perfect day with your reception in The Herb Farm Café (up to 50 people). Our café offers fresh delicious food made on-site by our Chef. We use only the best local and fresh ingredients and offer a range of beautiful New Zealand beverages.

Our gardens provide a stunning backdrop for your family and bridal photos or we can recommend local scenic sites for off-site photos.

Photo Opportunities

Our stunning gardens are the perfect spot for spectacular wedding photographs. Our property is diverse with both wooded and open areas, surrounded by our herbs and other beautiful plants. There are many areas in the garden with privacy from the wedding guests for this special time.

We can also recommend some beautiful local alternative photo settings. Guests can relax in the gardens with drinks and nibbles while the wedding party have their photos taken.


We have a delicious range of canapés and buffet menus to suit everyone’s needs. Whether it is canapés through to a full buffet selection your tastes and needs are catered for. Our Chef will ensure this important part of your day is remembered for years to come.

All catering is to be organised through The Herb Farm Café. 


We are fully licensed and can provide full bar services. We have a beautiful range of New Zealand wines and beers, can stock spirits as requested and also have a full range of non-alcoholic beverages available. BYO is not an option that we offer.

We will run the bar to your requirements and can charge drinks on consumption to your limit and then revert to a cash bar if you wish to do so.
