Events

At Jonkers Farm we host a limited number of rustic, boho-chic weddings per season. The farm is isolated, private and quiet. Jonkers Farm remains a real working farm after 100 years, so it is an ideal location to showcase New Zealand. With over twenty years of experience in location management, we utilise the very best of the outdoors and beautiful views with the best vendors in the industry to create a pop up wedding or event like no other, so every event is completely unique.

The Woodland is a naturally occurring cathedral here at Jonkers Farm. It is the perfect place for your ceremony. The Woodland is furnished with woodland seating made from wood off Jonkers Farm. Pre dinner drinks and nibbles can be in The Woodland with beautiful live music or sprawling out into the paddock overlooking the beautiful vista of Bethells Beach and Muriwai. Ideal for lawn games, live bands, chic festival vibes.

The photographic opportunities here at Jonkers Farm are endless and it is the perfect canvas to create a look that is unique to you. We have elevated, twin coast views of Muriwai and Bethells Beach, vintage farm buildings, rocky areas, woodland, vistas, long grass, a 1940’s woodshed, a vintage rustic handcrafted totara gate and film sets from Black Beauty and Mahana that make perfect photographic backdrops. The wedding areas at Jonkers Farm are free from power poles and any modern day paraphernalia which is why we are one of New Zealand’s most popular rural film locations.

After celebrations can be under a chic canopy, a rustic tipi, a clear marquee or in a “The Shed” which is our real working farm shed. All of these options make the very best of the land and create an event that is elegant yet laid back with just the right amount of WOW factor.
