The Rippon Hall

Overlooking our stunning vineyard, Lake Wanaka, Ruby Island, the Southern Aps and beyond, The Rippon Hall is the perfect venue for weddings of all shapes and sizes. Thirty years of planning and dreaming gave rise to The Rippon Hall, a building quite literally born of the land upon which it stands. Rippon is more than just a name; it is a piece of land farmed by four generations for more than one hundred years.
Originally from the US, Kelcey has lived in Wanaka with her husband and fur baby for 6 years, and has been with Rippon for over 3 years. When not making wedding dreams come true, she enjoys yoga, skiing, boating and enjoying our beautiful backyard.
