This information gives many answers to commonly asked questions. However, there is nothing like a personal meeting to ask all those other questions that are relevant to yourselves and your own wedding requirements
Our weddings start from $150 per person, inclusive of all food and beverages. At Mudbrick we charge you for food and beverage consumed by yourselves and your guests, plus a ceremony venue hire fee. In the busy months we have a minimum spend required, at quieter times of the year we offer special packages.

Your wedding at Mudbrick can be catered for any time of year; the seasonality of a vineyard displays the most interesting of backdrops for photographs – from stunning canes and crisp winter light in June, new buds in spring, lush green foliage in summer, and probably the most striking, the vibrant red and orange leaves of autumn around May.
We have both an outdoor and indoor ceremony option – a stunning outdoor site or an ambient intimate indoor experience. Your guests will have the most spectacular sea views throughout the wedding dinner overlooking Waiheke’s rolling vineyards and Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. The restaurant has French doors that completely peel back and a roof that opens to the stars. We have the structure and solidity that a tent or marquee cannot provide. A 1.5 metre vintage Parisian chandelier is suspended over the dance floor with it’s own open fireplace. You will feel transported into a different world and your guests will leave with a lifelong memory – Mudbrick is indeed a stunning environment for a wedding celebration, even simply considering Mudbrick as a wedding venue is an enjoyable experience!
