The Hermitage


The most special day warrants the most breathtaking location.  We are spoilt for venue choices with old buildings, churches, beautiful gardens, windswept tussocklands, spectacular glaciers and mountain tops!

It's no wonder Aoraki Mount Cook National Park is one of New Zealand's premier wedding destinations and recently named as The #1 Place in the World to get Married, by the UK Times.

The Hermitage offers a superior range of facilities and a professional, experienced events team to cater to any wedding or civil union ceremony - from a romantic private ceremony on top of the Tasman Glacier to a grand affair in the famous Panorama Room.

Our team will ensure the lead-up and execution of your event is smooth and spectacular, rain or shine!  They can also work with you to organise any of the following services should you require them:

  • Marriage or civil union celebrant
  • Ceremony location & logistics
  • Photographer
  • Flowers
  • Wedding cake
  • Hair
  • Make-up
  • Specialised wedding theming
  • Band, DJ or entertainment

You will find more detailed information in this section about our all-inclusive wedding and reception packages, guest accommodation, ceremony location ideas and venue details.  We hope that this assists and inspires you in the planning of your wedding.  Please feel free to contact our events team to ask any questions you may have or to create your very own tailor-made package which makes the most of this magical alpine environment.
