Kaipara Harbour is home to Mataia Homestead, a working sheep and cattle farm built in 1891. The Gardner family has restored this stunning historic site and have graciously allowed the public to use it for weddings and private events. There are extensive gardens to place a Schupepe marquee and to accommodate your wedding guests for a spectacular outdoor wedding. While the homestead can only fit 12 guests, there is another farm-house nearby which can accommodate up to 100 people. It is truly perfect for those with an appreciation for historic treasures.



If you are looking for a 5-star accommodation and venue with a genuine New Zealand beauty and world-class comfort, look no further than Waimana Point in Matakana. This luxury lodge offers a sauna, an indoor heated pool, a helipad, gym, 6-hole golf-chipping course and much, much more. Just one hour north of Auckland, this place is perfect for an intimate wedding or private event. We have had the pleasure of rigging one of our marquees on their beautiful grounds. Needless to say, the team didn’t want to leave, and neither will you or your guests!


Nestled within 200 acres of unspoiled oceanfront, native bush, and wildlife, Pakiria Point Lodge is one of the best-kept secrets on New Zealand’s North Island. Just outside of Matakana, this exclusive B & B is an award-winning venue. Here at Schupepe, we are often honoured and admittedly, excited to showcase our magnificent marquees on the manicured lawns of such breath-taking venues.

The Landing, for those seeking a modern, yet quaint wedding setting, provides the perfect backdrop for those couples who desire weeping willows, dove-houses, and rustic farm wagons. Just imagine the photo opportunities! A sparkling marquee set up upon the sprawling lawns will be captivating to say the least!
