Olveston Historic Home


Olveston Historic Home, for the perfect garden wedding.

Enjoy an impeccable, intimate and elegant wedding in the award winning garden of Olveston Historic Home. Imagine getting married in a beautiful central Dunedin garden with the back drop of a grand Jacobean style home.

Host the wedding ceremony only or the ceremony and the post-wedding function. A marque can be provided along with seating, tables and linen. The garden can accommodate up to 100 people.

Arrive in style driving up the curved pebble driveway and alight from the vehicle outside the main entrance to this magnificent house.

The perfect location for your ceremony, Olveston’s one acre Garden of National Significance with croquet lawn, formal and informal garden settings (including a working kitchen garden and green house) also provides the perfect location for wedding and celebration photographs all year round.

Private rooms inside Olveston – New Zealand’s finest historic home – are available for wedding preparations, post-ceremony ‘drinks and nibbles.’ Room can also be a backup ‘wet weather’ alternative for small gatherings.

Olveston is also the perfect location to host your own musical recitals in the sumptuous setting of the Drawing Room setting around Olveston’s 1906 Steinway Grand Piano.

Talks and presentations for up to 50 people can be hosted in the grandeur of The Great Hall. The Drying room is available for private hosting, meetings and seminars.
