As you enter the grounds you are drawn to the buildings’ unique style and incredible bell tower. The moment you enter under the bell tower you are embraced by the charm of the classic estate. The high vaulted timber ceilings in warm Macrocarpa present an immediate WOW factor. Entering the dance hall, the grand wood fire place will next catch your eye. This room is a stunning wet weather option for your ceremony and particularly cozy for a winter wedding. As you look around further you notice the attention paid to detail with many dated photographs and carefully chosen ornaments of interest. Step outside to the courtyard and luscious lawns immaculately maintained, and enjoy the tranquility as the fantails flutter about the trees and gardens. With 3 acres of property to explore there is ample room for your guests to spill out and find their own private corner. Tucked away in one of the corners is our pergola, and primary wedding ceremony site. No need to worry about your guests hearing the ceremony as our portable sound system takes care of that while allowing your chosen music to be played. Over the years we have added a few more garden features that offer locations for family and bridal party photos. Our latest is the Jetty. It is located at the edge of the property nestled in the native bush by the stream that borders the property. Watch for further photos of our bush setting at the other end of the property. With huge Kanuakas and native ferns, this shaded area is lovely for family photos on a hot summer’s day. Another favourite resting spot is our rustic swing, nestled in the shade of the trees. A perfect spot to gaze back at the venue. Imagine the bell ringing to announce to all the commitment you and your fianc? have just made. A truly special touch. Traditionally a bell is rung twelve times to offer well wishes for the first twelve months of your married life. The venue has that relaxed feel that you have been looking for. Now let us sit with you and find out all your other dreams for the day. Whether it is a cocktail party, buffet or a more formal set menu you are after we are happy to offer menu samples and work together with your budget.
