Planning a wedding is exciting, but it can be easy to become overwhelmed by choice! Selecting a wedding venue can really set the tone for your big day. Many couples find that once they have booked a venue, everything else falls into place.

Beautifully landscaped, Hampton Lea Gardens in Lincoln is the perfect setting for your wedding day. Nestled in the Canterbury countryside south of Christchurch, your guests will enjoy the easy 20 minute drive and the stunning vistas along the way. Large established trees and sprawling manicured lawns surround a sculptured pond. Giant natural stepping stones float above the waterfall and an ornate silver archway on the deck extends over the water, giving you a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony. If you prefer you can make use of the rustic woolshed, with its sparkling chandeliers, silk drapes and red carpet. 

Please be advised that Hampton Lea Gardens is a private garden and not open to the public. Simply email or call to arrange a time to meet us there.

Weddings & Receptions

Hampton Lea Gardens has numerous photo opportunities on site. You will not need to leave your guests to get amazing photos. There is the floating on the pond shot, under the arches, the top of the loft, the hay shed, the woolshed, the stockyards, the wild grass and the magnificent blue gums and many more.

    We provide a blank canvas at Hampton Lea and will fill it with whatever your dreams are for your wedding day. You can take your guests back in time to the stylish and classy era of the “high tea party” or a picnic garden party, a lunch barbeque, a cocktail function or an early buffet dinner.

    How to find us

    Hampton Lea Gardens is located in the Lincoln/Rolleston area and is only a 20 minute drive from Christchurch or just 4 minutes from Rolleston.

    The easiest way to reach the venue from Christchurch is via the Main South Road. Turn left at the large BP at Rolleston onto Tennyson Street. Go straight through 2 roundabouts. You will then leave Rolleston behind. Travel along this very straight country road until you see the 50km bend. Just after the bend on the right hand side is our driveway. You will see the blue sign when you come around the bend. This is basically a 4 minute straight drive from the BP service station.
