Local at Riccarton House is an ideal venue for a wedding during the cooler months of the year. The warm wooden features and open fires create a perfect atmosphere for a winter wedding. We have some lovely options onsite for your ceremony to be held. If the weather allows you may like to have this take place in our Rose Garden or we have The Fine Dining Room which is a perfect indoor ceremony location.
Following the ceremony pre-dinner drinks and canapes can be served either in The Rose Garden or around the fireplace in our grand foyer area. If you are having photos during this time you can use areas around the expansive grounds or the inside of the house.
The reception dinner is held in The Drawing Room, a beautiful space at the front of the homestead with heritage features and views out to the Avon river. Later, guests can dance the night away under the stags heads or relax in our stunning Fine Dining Room on one of the leather couches set by the fire place with a cup of tea or perhaps even the whiskey from our fine selection for that late evening night cap.
