Fairfield House is a magical venue for any wedding. We specialise in working with couples to ensure that their day is perfect.

The diversity of the spaces we can offer you, means you can tailor the day to completely suit your own taste and needs. The spaces lend themselves to whatever is your style: Formal or casual.

You have total choice of caterer, we are happy to recommend if you would like. You also have control of what alcohol you bring on the premises, there are no add-on charges.

The Wedding Ceremony

There are several very special places where vows can be exchanged at Fairfield. The Courtyard with its beautiful gardens and surrounding trees is one of our most popular locations.

The bride and her attendants can make a spectacular entrance from the woodland grounds down the trail into the courtyard where her groom and guests await. The adjoining Gallery and verandas are the ideal places to serve drinks from and ensure contingency spaces should the weather become inclement.

The Meadow, an open grassed area with terraces formed by rock walls and large stone steps, is surrounded by magnificent large old elms, oaks, redwoods and natives. The Meadow offers a choice of stunning natural backdrops for your wedding ceremony.

The Wedding Reception

The Ballroom with its two working fireplaces, high ceilings and wooden floors can seat up to eighty guests for wedding receptions.

The Meadow can be used with a marquee for larger weddings. The Courtyard is also a wonderful place to have the wedding dinner - al fresco.

Both The Ballroom and The Gallery are wonderful spaces for dancing in to a DJ or a band! The French doors open onto the wrap around wooden verandas and gorgeous gardens. Perhaps you will choose to have candle lit tables in The Courtyard with the surrounding fairy lights twinkling romantically?

Wedding Reception in Nelson @ Fairfield House

"From the very beginning Fairfield was the clear choice for our March 2017 wedding ceremony and reception. And Catherine made it easy ... she was friendly, helpful, calm, and open to our ideas. We felt very much supported by the team at Fairfield, who did everything they could to make our day amazing, then disappeared so we could enjoy the day with our guests. Magic!

We would recommend Fairfield to anyone looking to get married or hold a special event in a truly lovely location. Our day could not have been any better - beautiful, relaxed and full of fun and love. "
Katherine & Todd.
