WEDDINGS AT THE LAKE

Backpaddock Lakes is without a doubt one of the most unique outdoor venues you’ll find for your wedding in the Hawkes Bay. With picturesque views around the lakes and wetlands, the Ruahine Ranges in the background and wildlife singing, the lakes are the perfect venue to celebrate your big day. Backpaddock Lakes can cater for small, intimate weddings or larger weddings. Backpaddock Lakes has a purpose built event space, which we affectionately call “The Barn” and beautiful lakeside spots to set up a marquee.

THE BARN

Backpaddock Lakes has a specially built barn. The barn overlooks the lakes and has a rustic rural design with large doors to enhance the views. There are a range of options for setting up the barn to suit your style of wedding.
