WEDDINGS in the valley

A truly unique celebration

Phoenix Valley is a truly magical venue, where you can have your ceremony, photos and reception all in one location. Our venue gives you the freedom to create a unique event that is all about you – and in complete privacy.

This venue is perfect for couples looking for a peaceful and private space to make their own. Celebrate your wedding in nature and listen to the beautiful Tau Tau stream running by, the light breeze rustling the leaves of the trees, and the gorgeous sound of birdlife. Tuis, fantails and morepork abound, not to mention resident geese, Jeffery and Jemima.

With acres of wilderness to choose from for the ceremony and photo locations, the opportunities are unsurpassed.

The luxury glamping residence is kept private for the extended stay by the bridal party &/or other special guests

After your wedding, it’s easy to jump in the car and head out to explore the region – McLaren and Omanawa Falls are nearby, and if you feel like some city life, Tauranga is only a short drive away. Otherwise, just take the time and relax. Enjoy a dip in the swimming hole, a walk in the bush and at the end of the day – star gazing to your hearts content in a hot steaming outdoor bathtub.

Phoenix Valley is about a warm welcome, an unforgettable experience, passionate people coupled with glamping accommodation.  Come and experience the magic.


We are offering a different  and magical wedding experience here in the valley and will be providing a boutique destination venue, this allows you to enjoy the wedding and your friends and family for more than just a night (we are only opening for 6 weddings for 2018 and 6 weddings in 2019)

The valley has 130 acres of beautiful New Zealand bush with the delightful crystal clear Tau Tau stream running through the middle. We currently have our lovely luxury Glamping Retreat and now the new wedding venue on the property - it’s a paradise all to yourself.
