No Wonder they are the winners of NZ Wedding industry Awards, Outstanding Wedding Ceremony Venue, the Gardens are absolutely beautiful and Rachael is an angel.

I’m so grateful for the care and support Rachael provided us.

The food was PERFECTION ! I’m a real foodie and loved having such a large variety of options. 2 months on and I’m still craving more of their chocolate tart
