Wedding at the Old Stone House, March 2020
The last wedding before lockdown was held on 6 March and by all accounts it was fabulous. We have received the following wonderful testimonial from the bridal couple that is just too good not to share. We look forward to welcoming people back to the Old Stone House as soon as possible so why not check us out!
“The microphone and speakers were amazing; the lanterns were the perfect lighting at night and everyone had a ball. There was the perfect amount of room for the band and for people to dance. I hope more people see the place for the amazing wedding venue that it is.
One thing that we really loved about the venue, was the nearness of locations for wedding photos. We chose to head up the Port Hills (a very short drive), we took photos at the top, then headed down. We stopped part way down at a park that has an olive grove and field, then we stopped off at the little reserve and took photos by the river.”

Summer Jazz - 4-7pm, Sundays, January and February 2020
Wasn't it wonderful! For 6 weeks over summer the Old Stone House played host to live music from The Mike Bickers Boptet, River City Jazzmen and the All Girl Mini Band.
It was a perfect way to spend a late Sunday afternoon - and the weather was mostly ideal (just a little too warm on one occasion) - and the food and beverages available were the perfect complement to the great music.
We hope to make this an annual event series, so look out for it again in 2021!
Christmas Carols - 5.30-7.30pm, Friday 13 December 2019
We simply could not have had a more perfect evening for this lovely event helping us to get in the Christmas spirit. It was a beautifully warm and still evening - a relative rarity in Christchurch.
Thanks to the brass quartet, led by Mike Bickers, for providing an anchor for the community singing. Thanks also for the great sausage sizzle, raising funds for Cashmere Primary, and Coffee Vice for delicious drinks. And, yes, the cat was there too!
We hope to make this an annual event, so look out for it again this December!
