About Perfect Venue

Perfect Venue was created by founders Kylie Richardson and Gemma Dixon after being frustrated at the lack of resources online for planning our own weddings. We couldn’t find a decent website with information on a variety of reception venues in one place, so we decided to make our own…

We have been friends since attending high school together in Christchurch and we now work together at The New Black, still here in Christchurch.

We started working on Perfect Venue in June 2007 to address the need for more comprehensive venue information on the web. Gemma was married in 2006, and Kylie in November 2008. We both found that planning weddings while working full time can be a difficult task, and that modern brides reply on the world wide web to help plan their special day. At the time, while there was information out there, it was dispersed, and hard to track down without visiting multiple websites. We therefore decided to fix this problem, by creating Perfect Venue, the most comprehensive wedding venue directory in Christchurch! A one stop shop for brides to find the perfect venue for their wedding reception, and also for any other function or event being planned.

The concept behind Perfect Venue is that it is free for venues to have a detailed listing. This allows us to list the widest variety of wedding venues, right from charming community halls up to extravagant function centres and beautiful vineyards.

In April 2020, amongst the COVID-19 crisis we launched a completely redeveloped Perfect Venue and we hope it’s even more useful now for everyone planning events in and around Canterbury.
