On January 4, 2024, we said goodbye to our dear friend Megan Paish at The Lodge Pauatahanui Inlet. The Lodge is a special place for Megan who held the most beautiful ceremonies for our couples. Megan will always have a special place in our hearts, and we will keep her memory alive.

Megan, Tony and their family received the most amazing support from the Mary Potter Hospice in the final weeks of Megan’s life. To keep Megan’s passion for good causes and this flame burning please donate in Megan’s name below. No amount is too small. It was Megan’s wish others would benefit from this caring support.

When filling out the details, please include Megan’s full name. If a certain amount is reached Megan’s name will be included on the donations board at the hospice.


“My wife Eve and I held our 50th wedding anniversary at the Lodge, and I must say that the team could not do enough for us. The Lodge is a superb setting for any special occasion, and the hospitality is second to none. I highly recommend the Lodge and wish to thank everyone for the wonderful memories we have of celebrating our 50th anniversary there.”

“We have used this venue now on several occasions for business meetings and workshops. The owners are incredibly accommodating – nothing is too much trouble. The standard of food is very high and there is always plenty of it. There are a number of rooms which may this a versatile venue for meetings and breakout rooms. And on a fabulous Wellington day its great to make use of the extensive outdoor decking areas. I would highly recommend this venue for your next meeting or function. You won’t want to leave!”
