Make it a very furry Christmas at Westfield Riccarton.
Why should your four-legged friends miss out on all the fun? Bring them along for a Santa photo with the whole family.
Online bookings are essential, and sessions book out quickly. Please note, there will be no walk-ins available (no matter how persuasive those puppy eyes may be). View the variety of photo packages available and book here to secure a time that is convenient for you.
Dress-ups are welcome, so deck them in their best festive outfits and create an extra special merry memory. Don't forget to check out our pet gift guide filled with toys, tech, outfits and treats.
Still with the magic you know and love, we will be offering a Covid-Safe Santa experience this year that reflects local requirements.
Masks will be required indoors for anyone over the age of 12, including Santa, and our photography set will be assessed in line with Christchurch restrictions.
For your wellbeing, a few extra safety measures will be in place. Hand sanitiser will be available and a separate screen for families to view their Santa pictures. Santa’s elves will also support with cleaning throughout the day.
Please also note that when you book a photo online for you and your pet, you are automatically opting in to the below terms and conditions:
