The best Christchurch Wedding Venue in my opinion is Trent’s Vineyard. Now, I should state a disclaimer first that I shoot 90% of my weddings in the Queenstown area and am much better-acquainted with the venues down here than those in Christchurch. However, I often get inquiries from couples planning to get married in Canterbury and wanting advice on venues there. Also, my family is based in Canterbury and I do shoot the odd wedding up that way so I do have some insight on the matter. For thee reasons, I decided to put together a wee blog post full of info and photos about Trent’s Vineyard and why I think it is one of, if not, the best Venues in Christchurch.
Note. This blog post is very much a work in progress so please do check in from time to time to see if there have been any updates. Or better yet, follow me on Facebook or Instagram to automatically get notified about new and updated blog posts, free wedding planning tips and other goodies.

christchurch wedding venue - why i think trent's vineyard is the best!
I will add more info here as soon as I have a chance, but the reasons wjy I think Trent’s Vineyard is one of the best venues in Christchurch are really simple but powerful;
- The trees and greenery mean that you always have soft light and a beautiful natural backdrop, no matter what the weather is doing (unlike say a heli-wedding, where if the skies go grey or white you have a pretty drab colourless background).
- There are so many beautiful spots to shoot at Trent’s Vineyard that you don’t need to go anywhere else for location photos. And this in turn results in a wedding day that is more relaxed and more time spent with friends and family.
- The food, setting and service at Trent’s are simply second to none and make your wedding planning so much less stressful!
