Very exciting I just found this. Perfect venue for your small wedding and as it is nestled
alongside the picturesque Halswell River in a tranquil Tai Tapu "The Church" has been lovingly restored to create a unique venue stepped in history. (My parents were married in Tai Tapu as were lots of other family and friends).
If you are planning a wedding brides can arrive by boat and get married on the expansive deck area or indoors. The property includes four bedrooms, modern sound system, options for seated or cocktail function and a large kitchen.
Wow, this looks like the perfect place to celebrate your intimate wedding.
Treat yourself to an outstanding experience where you will feel the tranquility the moment you enter this large enchanting former Church. This will be a high-light of your travels. The property, built in 1881, has been bought back from it's former glory as a much loved church to now represent the finest, unique accommodation around. To experience it's unrivaled charm will be the highlight of your stay. T
