Rippon is more than just a name, it is a piece of land farmed by four generations of the same family over more than one hundred years. With this guardianship comes an inherent love and respect for the land, shown across all areas of our work, from the biodynamic principles that guide all aspects of our farming to the pride that we take in welcoming people onto the land and to The Rippon Hall.
Standing atop the Rippon hill, The Rippon Hall and its surrounding spaces offer a number of options for outdoor weddings.
The natural amphitheatre, offering views out over the vines to Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps, lies adjacent to The Rippon Hall and is a popular spot for wedding ceremonies.
Closer to the lake and nestled among the vines, we have the nursery site, one of the most sheltered spots on the property. Many couples choose to exchange wedding vows down in this more private area and then continue the celebration up on the hill in The Rippon Hall.
