Last weekend we started looking around for a wedding venue. We had a look at a place that overlooked one of the bays on the southern part of Wellington, with a great view of the ocean towards the south island. It was nice…
This weekend we looked at a placed called Skyline Restaurant, which is really nice. But we don't think it's appropriate for our wedding, as we felt the wedding area was too small, and overlooked the restaurant area, allowing people on the outside to look in.
Today we had a look at Wilton House, which is in the bushland close to where we live. So far, we like what we've found with that place. It has the cosy atmosphere, with warmth and comfort, that we're looking for. It has a fireplace, buffet area, seating area, piano area, dance area…. It also has a pretty cool garden area, which can be where the ceremony is, followed by everyone moving inside for the reception while we get photos taken outside. That's if it's a nice day, of course.
Anyway, I think we're going with this place so far, but we're still going to look at other venues, and see what we can find.
