Keeping Cool

Summer vibes here in Taranaki and we’re looking forward to our wedding season! We know how much goes into planning your big day and we have a very important tip for you…


Shade is Your Guest’s Best Friend!!


Make sure you remember to keep your guests covered from our intense New Zealand sun. Providing shade can sometimes be overlooked and we want to make sure your guests have an amazing experience.


Is your wedding outdoors? Visit your venue during the afternoon and scope out areas with natural shade and the areas where you will need to incorporate shade. As long as there are a few shaded options for guests to sit down and get out of the sun, this should be enough to keep everyone happy and avoid anyone from overheating.


Ways to keep your guests cool and comfortable:

  • Design your program as a fan for guests to use while seated at the ceremony
  • Our wine barrels with umbrellas (just in!) are a great way to cover food that could be sitting out
  • Scatter umbrellas around the sunny areas
  • When hiring a Marquee make sure it has a solid roof to protect everything underneath from the sun. Far better to create a night sky with lights instead!


These tips will allow your guests to enjoy your outdoor wedding in the comfort of shaded space.


Stay Cool!
