Seated Wedding Dinner


Local at Riccarton House can cater for up to 64 people for a seated reception and we have a number of unique locations if you wish to have your ceremony onsite.


Following the ceremony drinks and canapes can be offered in the Rose Garden while wedding photos are being taken in the grounds. Guests can relax outside before moving inside for dinner. As an alternative in the cooler months, pre-dinner drinks and canapes can be offered inside the house.


The reception dinner is held in The Drawing Room, a beautiful space with heritage features at the front of the homestead with French doors opening out onto the veranda overlooking the Avon River. There is also the option of being seated outside in The Rose Garden – a very special experience for guests.

Later, guests can dance the night away under the stags heads or relax in our stunning Fine Dining Room with our leather couches set by the fire place, tea and coffee on the sideboard and perhaps even the whiskey trolley

for that late evening night cap.
