The Milk Station’s Italian inspired garden ceremony spot

The Milk Station wedding venue has a breathtaking garden ceremony location. It is surrounded by trees, lined with pillars, and has a beautiful fountain as the ceremony backdrop. Not only is The Milk Station’s outdoor ceremony spot intimate and private, the surroundings also transport you somewhere far away. It’s hard to believe you are still so close to Wellington city.

The Milk Station has a fantastic wet weather indoor ceremony option available

So many wedding venues don’t have good wet weather ceremony options available. So it’s really great that bad weather isn’t something you have to worry about at The Milk Station. Rain or shine The Milk Station has a wonderful ceremony spot for you to use.

The Milk Stations 4 acre garden gives your guests plenty of space to mingle and play games

The Milk Station has four acres of stunning gardens with grapevines, fruit trees, garden patios, fountains, and large open plan areas where your guests can play games. The layout of The Milk Station and the variety of social spaces available allow you to use different parts of the venue as the day unfolds. This creates an organic and seamless flow from one part of the wedding day to the next.

The Milk Station’s reception space is elegant and luxurious while also being full of character and charm

Another reason to love The Milk Station is the beautiful and sophisticated reception space. Natural light streams in through the many windows on to the marble and stone walls allowing you to enjoy every last drop of light on your wedding day.

The glass milk bottle chandelier hangs like a piece of art from the ceiling, and the large size of the reception area means you can have whatever reception table layout you like.

The Milk Station can fit up to 200 people which makes The Milk Station one of the few large wedding venues in the Wellington region that can host big weddings of this size.
