Hawke’s Bay Pop-up Weddings is on a mission to bring simple, stress-free and stylish weddings to Hawke’s Bay. Underpinned by our ethos of using fresh, local and organic as much as possible, we’ll take care of all the details to make your ceremony special from the venue to the cake.

Pop-up weddings are happening all over the world – they combine the simplicity of a registry office ceremony with the venue and style of a blockbuster wedding. By sharing the costs of venue and hireage, pop-ups keep things affordable so that you’ll have more left over for the things that matter, like an amazing honeymoon, or just paying off that mortgage.

The concept is basic – Hawke’s Bay Pop-up Weddings will hire a venue and set it up for you, you arrive looking fabulous, with your rings and paperwork and up to 24 guests. After your ceremony, which you will have created alongside one of celebrants, there’ll be bubbly and canapes, and of course a gorgeous cake! We’ll have a professional photographer to capture all of the special moments. The whole shebang takes 90 minutes and then you head off to start the newest chapter of your life as a married couple.

We’ve partnered with some really amazing locals to bring you pop-up wedding events – cakers, florists, canapes, singers – and all with the underpinning ethos of treading lightly on the earth.


  • We knew Tryphena was going to be perfect when we first met her for a coffee & couldn’t stop chatting, she’s warm, kind, funny, & pays close attention to detail. She created a beautiful, personalised ceremony for our wedding & worked it perfectly on the day, including singing the waiata Te Aroha with us & our guests. We are so pleased she married us & can’t recommend her enough!

  • “Tryphena did such a great job with our wedding. Very professional and full of warmth and positivity. Everything was so well organised and the day flowed so smoothly. I really can’t imagine how anyone could have done it better than Tryphena.”
