Queenstown Wedding Association Christmas Party 2020

A great Queenstown wedding venue

The Queenstown Wedding Association Christmas Party 2020 was a much needed celebration for our membership. We gathered at brand new Queenstown wedding venue Ben Lomond Lavender Farm – a gorgeous location for your wedding or elopement. With lines of lush lavender, 360 degree mountain views, and a grand rustic barn there are plenty of wedding photo options here. Plus, you’re only a ten minute drive from Queenstown!

The Flower Room styled up a storm with festive florals and a Christmas tree wall installation using foliage foraged on site. Their white and wicker furniture was comfy and cute and the Star Bar caravan was a real hit! Additional bench seating from Stretch Tents was practical and sociable, giving us all space to eat and catch up. And Hire King‘s posh porta-loos were a lovely little luxury.

Eats & drinks from our Queenstown wedding sponsors

On arrival our Queenstown Wedding Association members and guests were greeted with a choice of mimosa or Aperol spritz cocktails thanks to Liquor King and Cocktail Merchant. Cargo Brewery kept the beer lovers happy and Your Big Day and Henry’s provided extra wine. Additional wine glasses from Party Plus made sure nobody went thirsty and Queenstown Ice kept everything cool.

In2Food‘s impressive grazing table was vegetarian friendly and perfect for pre-dinner nibbles. You simply couldn’t walk past without grabbing another mouthful of yummy cheese, bread, fruit and even donuts! Keeping with the casual vibe, dinner was a take away buffet from Zamora‘s BBQ Box. This DIY sandwich station included beef brisket, pork belly, pumpkin salad, coleslaw, and chimichuri sauce – delicious! Another popular food station was the lolly bar by Queenstown Wedding Hire which was stocked full of classic flavours and Christmas treats.

Entertainment & extras

Our QWA Christmas party is always a family friendly event and Babysitting Queenstown made sure the kids stayed entertained. With heaps of toys, games and crafts to distract the children, parents were able to relax and enjoy a well deserved festive drink. The young ones also loved helping draw the winning tickets for our charity raffle in support of Kiwi Harvest. Meanwhile, the QT Booth photo booth brought out the kid in everyone as we all snapped some silly selfies!

The party atmosphere was set thanks to a specially curated playlist by LA Social Club who also provided all the sound equipment. And Kellie Francis Photography was the lady behind the lens as our official event photographer.
