Your Queenstown Wedding

The Canyons Lodge is perfectly suited as a Queenstown Wedding Venue offering privacy, an exceptional location and personalised service. The beautiful lawn overlooking the Shotover River Canyon, Coronet Peak and the mountains in the backdrop make a memorable ceremony, reception and accommodation venue. 

Your Ceremony

We have two options as a location for your ceremony at The Canyons Lodge. The large expanse of lawn below the lodge that makes for the perfect backdrop for photos and allows for larger ceremony numbers of between 80 to 120 Guests. The other option is to use the deck area in front of the Lodge, which has a small Gazebo in the forefront of the Shotover River. We generally recommend this for smaller ceremony numbers of between 40 to 60 Guests. A spring top Marquee can also be erected on the grounds next to the lodge as a back up for wet weather.

If you would like a more traditional ceremony, Queenstown and Arrowtown have some beautiful chapels and churches, which are only short distances from The Canyons Lodge.

The Reception

We have created different packages to suite different numbers and budgets. A marquee can be organised to be erected on the lawn next to the Lodge for both smaller or larger parties up to 120 guests.  If weather permits, a walk and fork style on the decking is another option with a marquee erected as a back up for inclement weather.  You can hire the Lodge Grounds from between 11.30 am and 5.30 pm for a day function or from 11.30pm to 11pm for a full day.  

We can look at packages for you with the best options for your wedding, and offer hosted B&B accommodation in our 2 Superior Double rooms. 

Accommodation Available

The Lodge offers the bridal party guests an accommodation option for their stay in Queenstown. We have 2 Superior Rooms for overnight stay for up to 4 guests of wedding party. If hired these two rooms can also be used by the Bridal party on the day of the wedding to get ready in. 

Afterparty Options

As Queenstown is only minutes from The Canyons Lodge, it is easy enough to head into town after the reception finishes. We have to consider our neighbours and consent restrictions and can only have music playing until 10.45pm with all guests having departed by 11pm. We can negotiate some fantastic after party options with some of the best bars in town.
