Our sheltered lawn with a Victorian Gazebo under the Sycamore trees is a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony, or if raining, in the conservatory area with roll up sides. There is no charge to have your wedding ceremony at Trents if your reception is here.
Trents can provide shepherds crooks, barrels, plinths with foliage, approximately 100 white chairs, red carpet and decorated registry table which we set up for you.
Most ceremonies are held mid afternoon followed by canapés and drinks on the lawn.

Trents pulled out most of the vineyard in 2002, leaving an acre for photos. Trents now offer a BYO service at $10 per bottle or per head, which ever is the lesser number at the end of the night. Alternatively, you can choose one of our beverage packages. https://www.trentsvineyard.co.nz/beverages/
There are two menu options: Table Service or a served gourmet BBQ Buffet. We are flexible regarding menus and can work with you to design your own. For more information, please click here.
There are two dancing areas; the wooden floor of the main building or the tiled floor in the adjacent conservatory. There are quality house music systems for iPod, laptop, CD etc.
