If you’re planning an intimate celebration, our elopement packages provide everything you need. Whether you’re having a quiet ceremony with a larger celebration later, planning a vow renewal, or simply want to elope – we can help. You can relax and truly enjoy your day with the knowledge that our team of experts will be taking care of the details.

Your precious moments will be captured forever by our photography team who are able to work their magic and ensure that the shoot captures the perfect time of day for you - whether it’s sunrise, sunset, or something in between. Administering your special day is celebrant Suzie Hoare, experienced with all kinds of ceremonies, including religious, non-denominational, and LBGTQ+ friendly – love is love!


Finally, you’ll be able to enjoy your wedding night relaxing at beautiful Waitomo Hilltop Glamping, watching the sun go down over the stunning scenery as you toast to your future, perhaps while enjoying a soak in the outdoor clawfoot tubs.
