What's nearby without having to drive away
We are lucky to be located in the heart of Kumeu’s wine making district and surrounded by some of Auckland’s best wineries.
Our local beverage supplier Kumeu River, have their vines growing a short stroll down Old Railway Road where are couples often venture with their photographer to capture some stunning sunset photos amougst the vines. We are also situated on Old Railway Road and the walk back to our estate is the perfect opportunity to capture candid photos with the last rays of sunlight for the day.
The beach is close to our estate
Usually our couples stay onsite for their photographs, however some do really want to have that beach photo to top off their amazing Auckland wedding photo album.
If you do have the time to travel to Muriwai Beach to capture that special memory after your ceremony, this can deliver some stunning photographs but remember you can also plan a second shoot with your photographer and have that taken the day after.
What our customers have to say
Rina and her team are fantastic! Every request was met, which can't have been easy considering I planned this wedding from Australia!! You guys really go above and beyond every step of the way.
