Owner / Manager
Andy has been at Fiordland Lodge for the last 6 years and a co-owner in the lodge along with his family for the last 3 years. With a background in weddings and private functions in the UK Andy has hosted and overseen in the vicinity of 3-400 weddings ensuring you are in very capable hands. When you book a wedding at Fiordland Lodge Andy is your only point of contact from initial enquiry to all email correspondence to the actual running of the day.
The lodge is distinctively unique Andy says, “the main lodge or “Great Room” with it’s log construction is very impressive with massive whole tree trunks supporting ceilings. A huge 11 metre floor to ceiling river stone fireplace is the centre feature of the lounge and the open fire is 2 meters across and to our knowledge the largest fireplace in New Zealand.
The open architecture of Fiordland Lodge reflects the vastness of the Fiordland National Park and echoes of the forest are found in the striking natural timber construction. In the main lounge, a lattice work of huge log trusses soar to over 36 feet above and the bar top counters are huge fitches of rimu recovered from the ocean. Everything here is on a massive scale, including the views and handmade furniture.
The special attributes of the lodge itself combined with the extraordinary food, service and setting creates a wedding experience that is private, focused and of unmatched venue quality.
