Royalburn Station Weddings
Welcome to the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern elegance at our two distinct farm venues – Prohibition House and Hay Shed Terrace. Nestled in the heart of nature, our wedding spaces offer an idyllic backdrop for your special day.
The original Shearers Cottage of the farm was renovated in 1920’s style as a nod to the farms history of storing and selling moonshine in the Prohibition era. The house makes a fantastic area for a bar serving food and drinks at a large function outside, or hosting a smaller stand-up function or seated long table lunch/dinner for up to 20 people inside.
A picture-perfect setting, tucked away in a private, peaceful valley, you will feel like you’ve been transported back a hundred years ago; it is no doubt a romantic place for elopements and those who desire a rustic, authentic, more intimate smaller wedding.
There is an outside firepit and BBQ area, with outdoor table and seating, where a private chef can cook on the BBQ. A separate bathroom and toilet with a stunning view is close by.
There are two flat spaces directly outside Prohibition House suitable for erecting a tipi, stretch tent or marquee for larger functions up to 100 people.
Prohibition House is open from 1st October to 1st May (closed over Winter).
Hay Shed Terrace
With expansive, sweeping views from The Remarkables to Coronet Peak, Hay Shed Terrace is the ultimate location for making an impression.
Tipis, tents or very large marquees can be erected at this venue, comfortably hosting large events up to 500 people. Down a long driveway and hidden behind a large hay bale shed for privacy and shelter, the platform opens out to the west, making for the most incredible sunsets with a view straight down Lake Wakatipu.
A truly an awe-inspiring location, ready to bring your creative vision to life. Ideal for large weddings up to 500 people.
Large carpark and bus area nearby.
As part of the hire of Hay Shed Terrace you also get access to Prohibition House. The two venues are a short (300 metre), picturesque walk from each other, so it is easy to incorporate both venues into your event if you wish – start off with the ceremony, and/or drinks and canapés at Prohibition House, then invite guests to meander down to Hay Shed Terrace where they will be enthralled by the reveal of the next location.
Hay shed Terrace is open from 1st October to 1st May (closed over Winter).
