Beautiful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Nic and Lena, on 09 Jun 2014

Thank you Christchurch Harbour Hotel for making our wedding last month so perfect. The venue is stunning and the staff are so helpful , we are so glad we chose this wonderful hotel for our wedding ceremony and celebrations. Wedding coordinators at the hotel were happy to help with any requests we had in the weeks before the wedding, be it by e-mail or in person. The day itself run very smoothly and lots of our guests commented how beautiful the venue was and how lovely the food was. We were very impressed how well-organised the weddings at Christchurch Harbour hotel are, how personal each one of them is.

Amazing venue and amazing team!

Thanks to everyone at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa who made our wedding the most perfect day! We are so grateful and their hard work and dedication really showed in every aspect of our day! The venue itself is obvious stunning and the service was perfect :-)

Simply Stunning
Venue Service

By Beth & Simon, on 09 Jul 2013

Our wedding at Christchurch Harbour Hotel was perfect. Working with the team over email and planning everything from Australia was easier than we could have ever imagined. Every detail was cross checked and Chris (the most amazing wedding coordinator) made sure our day ran seamlessly. We would recommend anyone to have their entire day here (Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception) exactly as we did!

All I dreamt of and so much more....
Venue Service

By Alice & Chris Samuels, on 06 Jan 2013

I'm not sure I can express or describe just how perfect our Wedding Day at Christchurch Harbour Hotel was....from Cyan's help with the build up, ensuring every minute detail was included through to Chris, Sher and the teams' faultless efforts on the day in executing everything I had imagined my wedding to be. The food was delicious and I have been told repeatedly by many guests it's the best wedding food they'd ever had. The setting was idyllic and although the day started out very windy, by the time the sun was going down around 3, the weather had calmed and we were able to capture the most beautiful photos across the water. From the moment I checked in the day before and met Chris and Sher, they put my mind at ease with their calm and relaxed demeanour......exactly what an anxious bride needed :-) I didn't want the day to end and if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change one thing....Christchurch Harbour Hotel was the most perfect venue for our wedding.

Beautiful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Gemma Taylorson, on 02 Dec 2012

My husband and I had our wedding at Christchurch Harbour Hotel on 3 November 2012. From our first visit at the hotel right the way through to the following morning of our wedding, we were highly impressed with the experience we had. Prior to our wedding, the communication with our wedding coordinator (Cyan) was superb, she was incredibly thorough with all the details. Even though the hotel does a lot of weddings, we felt that our day reflected us personally really well. The day itself ran very smoothly and Chris who looked after us on our day couldn't have been more helpful. We had several gusts who commented about how good the food was and we definitely agree with them. Thanks to Cyan, Chris and the team at Christchurch Harbour Hotel for making our wedding so memorable.

Beautiful Location, Excellent Service
Venue Service

By Bryan Taylor, on 12 Nov 2012

The location is stunning and the harbour provides a wonderful backdrop for the photographs. The events team put me at ease from the first time we spoke, and then went on to facilitate our day in an unobtrusive and efficient manner. They were there when required and blended in to the background when appropiriate. It is now 4 weeks since we tied the knot and we have not been able to find fault with the day.

Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Sara and Gray Edwards, on 11 Nov 2012

Absolutely perfect! The hotel was such a beautiful setting and the staff were so kind and helpful. The day went so smoothly, met every expectation and more! We couldn't have dreamt of a more perfect wedding day.

Just perfect!
Venue Service

By Anna & Nick Mucha, on 04 Apr 2012

From our very first visit to the hotel we knew this was where we were going to get married. We were made to feel welcome right from the start. We had a wonderful wedding day at the hotel. Our wedding co-ordinator, Sophie, thought of everything and the day ran smoothly. All the staff were so friendly and efficient. A big thank you to Simon, Chris & Charlotte! The food was just fantastic and all of our guests had a lovely time. Our room had the most amazing view and we will definitely be going back to stay for our 1st Wedding Anniversary.

Wonderful! A perfect day, thank you so much.

Venue Service

By Andrea & Simon Keeble, on 20 Jul 2011

Our wedding so amazing and everything that we had dreamt of. The day felt very relaxed and ran smoothly and we felt completely confident that our guests were looked after and happy. We have had so many comments on the wonderful venue, lovely food and about the day itself that we know we could not have picked a more perfect venue or had a more perfect day.

Best day of our lives 1-7-11
Venue Service

By Angus & Jo-Ann Steel, on 11 Jul 2011

The hotel staff provided us with the most amazing wedding possible. The food was delicous, the views were spectacular and the guests were stunned with quality of the hotel. It was so romantic at dusk when the swans drifted by as we stood on the jetty. What a perfect start to our maried life. Thank you.
