Nelson Wedding Ceremony


The Playhouse Café can host your ceremony and reception in one convenient package.

As your guests await your arrival under the shade of a weeping willow tree, you can drive right up to the back of our quaint bridge still hidden from your guests by flax bushes. Your guests stand as the music starts and your ceremony begins.

Create perfect photos, with our garden pond and rose bushes behind you. We also have a large flat area behind the restaurant with fantastic blossoms during the spring and a recently planted fruit tree grove.

You are welcome to decorate the garden and bridge as you deem fit. In the past people have used: paper lanterns, fairy lights, material bows and drapes, and rose petals.

If the weather is dismal we do have a plan B option for you. The stage, directly in the restaurant is an excellent place to have a wet weather wedding. Our theatre lighting setup will make your special day look amazing and we are experts in transforming the reception area into a ceremony area and back again.

Also realize that if you are having an off-site ceremony you will be still entitled to come into The Playhouse from the agreed pack in time to decorate and set up. We do not open for lunch on your wedding day, the venue is 100 per cent yours for the day. Wedding rehearsals are encouraged.
