The Brick Mill Cafe has everything you need onsite for a beautiful North Canterbury wedding – including venue, catering and event coordination.

Brick Mill Cafe is a rustic and historic cafe in Waikuku, North Canterbury, owned by Abbe and Jonny Todd. Originally an old shed, the cafe has a natural mix of barn and industrial style as well as a large and sheltered grass courtyard overlooking paddocks and a stream. A comfortable and ambient space for any occasion.

Tell us about your business? While our space daily is a cafe, we can see the potential that the Brick Mill Cafe has to offer as a boutique wedding venue. We have started promoting the space to cater for smaller weddings (50-80 people), depending on the style of your event. With full kitchen onsite and an on-licence, this is a one-stop-shop for any bride and groom.

Between us, we have a wealth of knowledge in all things hospitality as well as a background in event coordination to help your day run smoothly and seamlessly. Our space has a rustic feel and a natural ambience that makes anyone visiting feel comfortable and excited to use our space.

What’s your mission for every couple who chooses your business? For any couple wanting to choose our space for their special day, our mission is to listen to what they want for their event, work with them to help make the day special while keeping to their budget. Every wedding will be unique and we will be there to help the day run as smoothly as possible so the couple can just enjoy their time celebrating with family and friends.

Bonus tip about your business? Please make sure you book at least six months in advance. We have a large car park so no need to worry about parking, however we are in a rural area so please consider how guests are going to get to and from the venue.
