The finer details:

VENUE: Darjon Vineyard


Darjon Vineyard is known as a hidden North Canterbury gem – and we have all weather options covered. Outside for sunshine, inside for rain.

Meris and Phil also supply and set up ceremony chairs, wine barrel for signing, shepherd crooks with jars along the aisle, and a ceremony arch. There are also many beautiful locations around Darjon, including among the vines, for all your bridal photos to be taken.

PHOTOGRAPHER: A North Canterbury Weddings’ photographer

You have two options to choose from:

  1. 60 minutes of photos ($650)
  2. 90 minutes of photos ($800)

The time for each photography option starts at the ceremony.

You will receive a gallery of images four weeks after your wedding, with a ‘sneak peek’ of five images within 48 hours.

CELEBRANT: Kineta Booker


Kineta Booker loves micro weddings! There’s something so special about inviting your closest friends and family to celebrate your love with you. We do the legal bit first, with a beautiful personalised ceremony, where you can share your own vows (which I’ll help with) – then you can get into the celebration straight afterwards! (NB: The price of the celebrant doesn’t include your marriage licence fee of $150. If you’d like to hire Kineta’s PA for the ceremony music, there’s a small fee of $25.)

CAKE: The Sugar Room


You will receive a taller style 6-inch cake. Flavour choices: chocolate and caramel; vanilla and passionfruit; red velvet and raspberry; lemon curd. And here are two cake styles to choose from:

Option 1


A rustic-style cake featuring a smooth buttercream finish and a dried flower arrangement.

Option 2


Textured buttercream finish with fresh florals climbing a gold hoop.
