My husband and I had a wonderful wedding at the Estate in April this year. As New Zealanders who’ve lived overseas for a long time, The Estate was everything we were looking for. Its magnificent location overlooking the Hauraki Gulf was complemented by the fact that this is a superb property, complete with suites where the wedding party can stay...

Fantastic venue for a wedding. The bridesmaids and I stayed in the Rose Wing the night before the wedding and it was beautiful, great start to the weekend. Beautiful amenities and a lovely delivered breakfast was a great start to my wedding day. The wedding was beautiful, especially considering it took place in a cyclone, all options were covered and...

The Estate Church Bay is the best place to have a wedding.

Not only was the view of the island, sea...

We also had our wedding...

What a place. 360 degree views of the Hauraki Gulf is just the beginning. A wonderful suite, with everything you could need, well designed and thought out. Helen & Julian are the perfect hosts, and nothing is a problem. Included in the price is a stunning breakfast, delivered when you want it. Ask Julian about the local wineries, he knows...

Best wedding we ever attended and wow, it was our own wedding! You might think… own wedding…prejudiced and fair enough, however… most of our guests are commenting the same ;) We were very lucky with the weather and were able to organise the wedding just the way we wanted it. Small, intimate with symbols from both our cultures, family members...

My new husband and I were thrilled with our wedding at the Estate. We had a Hindu/Catholic wedding and the grounds were ideal for all the components of our special day. With family attending our wedding from Scotland, Canada, Trinidad, the USA, we wanted a beautiful NZ wedding venue and it was perfect. The views were incredible. All of our...

My husband and I held our wedding at The Estate in November 2012, and we wouldn’t have changed a single thing. We looked around a quite a few venues, but The Estate was the obvious choice. Everything about it is stunning, from the views, to the courtyard full of roses, the surrounding gardens, the house itself, and the amazing accommodation....

I love surprises when I travel to new destinations and so it was when my wife and I arrived at The Estate where I celebrated my 60th birthday. What greeted us upon arrival was a well tucked away (i.e. private) residence of palatial and magnificent proportions situated amongst rollong hills amidst a variety of boutique wineries. Attached to the "mansion",...
