Events

At Jonkers Farm we host a limited number of rustic, boho-chic weddings per season. The farm is isolated, private and quiet. We are a real working farm, so you get the complete New Zealand farm experience. With over twenty years of experience in location management, we utilise the very best of the outdoors with some luxury items to create a pop up wedding like no other, so that your day is truly unique to you.

The Woodland is a natural occurring cathedral here on Jonkers Farm. It is the perfect place for your ceremony. The Woodland is furnished with woodland seating made from wood from Jonkers Farm. Pre dinner drinks and nibbles are also in The Woodland, it is a very grand and is the type of place that people just don’t want to leave. You are welcome to bring your own outdoor games to this area.

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 laid back, but still has the right amount of wow factor.

Based on 1oo people, we have a $10,000 plus GST location package that includes: The Woodland and Woodland seating, use of farmland for your after celebrations and photographs, one golf cart shuttle with driver, The Vintage Shuttle Truck with driver, Electricity, Luxury Toilets, Rubbish disposal, seasonal foliage for your flora, secure parking, location management, a set up day for you to set up your wedding and a pack down day the day after your wedding and two visits with your suppliers. In addition, you will need to choose either a canopy set up $5500 plus GST, a clear marquee set up $6500 plus GST, a tipi set up $8500 plus GST or The Farm Shed set up $3000 plus GST. Please note, these prices are indicative only.

You can bring your own certified caterer or choose from our great list of caterers, from food trucks, to served platters or a more formal, plated meal. At Jonkers Farm you will not get left with a huge beverage bill at the conclusion of your event, this is because we allow you to BYO drinks for $10 plus GST per head.

We are vintage.  Because the Jonkers Family have been here on the farm for almost 100 years, we have a great selection of vintage props for hire, along with wine barrels, wood slabs and hay bales.  Because the farm is so grand, you don’t need a great amount of styling, but we do have some authentic props available to enhance the rustic, boho-chic vibe of Jonkers Farm.

We love every event we host and aim for perfection,  therefore we only allow preferred suppliers for loo’s, marquees and generators.  This ensures an event of a very high standard.

Booking dates are limited and are secured with a 50% non refundable deposit on the location package.  If you are a supplier, we do not partake in styled shoots.
