Sign of the Bellbird – Bays View Wedding

Traditional wedding with panoramic views

Sign of the Bellbird is ideal for those wanting that non traditional wedding. For couples looking for the scenic and remote venue but not to far away from the city.

This remarkable venue unlike a lot of other wedding venues outdoors has the added bonus of the old ruin tearoom remains for shelter. Located high up on the Port Hills of Christchurch overlook Christchurch and Southern Alps on one side and just a quick 5 minute walk to the other side gives you views down on the panorama views of Lyttetlon and the harbor as well as the bays and ocean.

Sign of the Bellbird Wedding Christchurch

It was just over a year ago that we got married in Christchurch, NZ. Thanks to Donna our wedding was exactly as we had imagined. Donna organized everything and we didn’t have to worry about a thing leading up to and on the day itself, we couldn’t of asked for anything better.<br /> Regards,<br /> Shari and Dan (Australia)
