Matakauri Lodge

You will be the centre of our attention as wedding guests receive exclusive use of our lodge to ensure an intimate experience. Guests are cocooned by our attentive and intuitive service while your celebration – and photography – will be complimented by breathtaking, unobstructed views of the Remarkable Mountains and Lake Wakatipu.

It’s not just a clever name, the Remarkable Mountains are majestic, a heavenly backdrop for a wedding ceremony. For couples who seek a more traditional, religious venue, the churches of Queenstown are a short distance away.
