Welcome to Cossars

If you’re planning a wedding, a civil union or any other special function, talk to us about what we can offer you. Our lovely rural property has fantastic facilities including a gloriously high ceilinged dining hall that can seat up to 110 people… with an unbeatable outdoor courtyard in front, lawns and a rose garden to the side, and a vineyard! There is a full commercial kitchen where the caterers serve up their fabulous cuisine, great places to take photos and a friendly but stylish atmosphere.

If you’re looking for a boutique venue… take a twenty minute drive from the centre of Christchurch to talk to us. You will be happy you did. In Spring, the lavender is in full bloom, a bright purple accent beside the silver leaves of the olive trees and the soft country terracotta of the barn and function hall. In Summer, the sun casts stunning shadows across the stones of the limestone pebbled courtyard. And of course Autumn has its grand displays of opulent colour, crisp mornings and timeless days. In every season, Cossars has a different personality – always the same, but always changing. That’s the magic.

Video Tour

Check out this gorgeous video by the very talented Lovelight Cinema and Photography. James and Sarah’s beautiful Cossars Wineshed wedding was held in the Spring of 2013.

“ Thank you so much Sophie for making our day so relaxed, enjoyable and memorable. We had the best day ever! We would highly recommend Cossars Wineshed, the most beautiful wedding venue, run by the most amazing people! ” – James and Sarah Firman

Kind Words

Cossars truly is the best place in Canterbury to get married! Due to Sophie’s hard work, impeccable time management and dedication our wedding planning and big day could not have worked out more perfectly. Sophie’s help with planning and the timing of the big day was invaluable and meant I could relax and enjoy the day as much as everyone else.
