"What an amazing venue, the gardens are so beautiful and the service second to none. Both our daughters chose Waterlilly Gardens for their special day, best decision ever. So many magical spots for photos and for the guests to wander through. The food and service was fabulous and all our guests were impressed. Would certainly recommend it for a wedding. Magical!"

"Thank you so much Rach, Evan, Sitia, Aunty and whanau for everything you did to ensure our day was amazing...and that it was. Rach and Evan you are both awesome people and we received so many praises about the hospitality that you both provided for us and our whanau. We are speechless, see you soon xx"

“Our wedding was extraordinary; beyond what we even hoped for, and that's due in huge part to your gorgeous venue and wonderful hosting. You never made us feel like anything was difficult or a problem, and the day before the wedding when I was having a bit of a stress-out, your calming presence was just what I needed."
