We at Mamaku Blue can offer you a wonderful reception venue – Or better still a full Wedding Package, with Country Hospitality, Unique Ceremony Location and the Reception Venue, along with rural views and something different for your Special Day. We are based only 20 mins north of Rotorua.


Can be held in the Complex if wet, with the bride descending from the upstairs balcony to the ground floor area to meet her family and guests. Our complex seats 100 plus people with some over flow space on to our outdoor patio.

Alternatively your ceremony can be held in a rock garden adjacent to the building. This area is very suitable for smaller groups and for wedding photographs.

Others have chosen to have their guests transported to our native bush area, where on the grass, with the Bush and Birds forming a beautiful peaceful backdrop, your ceremony can be held in the open air. Returning to the complex for the wedding breakfast.

Our recommendation is that you both visit and view the options we can offer. We can then tailor make arrangements to suit your needs.

Mamaku Blue can cater for your wedding. We have a range of menu options to suit your needs. Be it nibbles for guests on arrival or something in-between while photos are being taken. Alternatively, arrangements can be made with your own favourite caterer for them to come and use our kitchen facilities and their own wait staff. We would then run your bar and drink service for you.

We are happy to recommend experienced caterers for your special occasion:  “The Catering Company” and “Brownie’s Spit Spectacular” .

“Mamaku Blue” offer a fully licensed bar, with a good range of beers, spirits and wines including our own specialty fruit wines, liqueurs and pure blueberry juice.

Wine can also be purchased by the bottle for the tables.
Our licence does not allow BYO.

The Complex has a minimum hire fee of $1500.00 which includes setting up of the room prior to your arrival and total clean of the room following your departure, off-road parking in complex compound, service staff and bar staff will all be provided by Mamaku Blue

Use of the Bush Chapel cost is $700.00. This covers the cost of us providing the people carriers and staffing to get everyone to and from the bush clearing.

Additional costs such as extended Liquor Licence, hire chair covers, DJ etc will be determined by your requirements.

Mamaku Blue can also provide contact to our regular transport contractors for bus pick up and delivery of your guests to and from our venue. This takes away the stress of worrying about drink-driving.

We are happy to discuss and help you arrange the entertainment to suit your personal requirements.

We look forward to being of service to you both on this special day and wish you all the best for your future together.
