the venue is stunning. it is very beautiful and enticing. lots of open spaces for any activity you want to do on your wedding day. the crew is awesome, excellent service from the staff. all smiles and always ready to help. we love the crew.

however, the one star goes to robin's attitude towards the couple and guests.

let me be specific:

1. the bridal room - the bridal room is located literally next to robin's home. during the bridal prep on one of the weddings i attended at gracehill, robin entered the bridal room without knocking and started complaining why people are noisy and if he can get some privacy because he lives next door (next "wall" actually). we respect that every kiwi is entitled to their privacy, however, robin if you like privacy then you should not rent out that tiny room as a bridal room. people will book a bridal room to get ready not sleep. people will be coming in and out, there will be laughter, lots of talking and celebration, it's a wedding after all. also, robin, please knock, don’t just barge in the bridal room. we know it's your property but we rented the room, we also need our privacy, especially the people inside the bridal room are mostly women in their bridal robs.

2. ruining the mood - my friend had their first dance by the lake, while the guests light sky lanterns. it was such a happy feeling for everyone, the music was playing, the couple is dancing and sky lanterns flying but robin had to ruin the good vibe. he walk towards the middle of the crowd, start talking to the MC and asking why everyone is not up in the main reception area seated and ready to eat as the mains will be served soon. robin, you have a point, however we would appreciate it if you didn't barge in the middle of the crowd and acting like you control the event. you could have pulled the MC on the side and talked to him privately or better yet, waited for the first dance to finish, talked to the MC privately and voice out your concern. you have no right, i will repeat that, you have no right to ruin any couple's wedding day just because the mains are ready to be served.

we went back up to the main reception area after the couple’s first dance by the lake and after the sky lanterns activity. the guests, instead of talking about how wonderful it was to see the couple do their first dance and how magical it was to fly sky lanterns, the talk of the night until the end of the wedding programme was how rude robin was. robin single handedly made everyone feel uneasy and unwelcome. some guests even felt scared going to the counter to ask a glass of water or orange juice as they might end up talking with robin. luckily, the staff were all great, they actually help alleviate the tension by wearing a constant smile.

overall, the venue by itself is beautiful and majestic. the staff are absolutely delightful and accomodating.

I’m a bit late in writing this review, but Gracehill Vineyard Estate was a fantastic venue to hold our wedding ceremony and reception at. Warren and Linda were great to deal with and always happy to answer our questions. I really felt like I didn’t have to do too much organising as they did a lot of it for me! Just one example, we had brought the music for walking down the aisle, signing the register and walking back up the aisle on an iPhone with instructions on which song to play when, but we hadn’t actually practiced it beforehand. I was a little nervous but Warren did it perfectly, fading it out when needed and it was the right volume.

It is such a beautiful location with the lake, grapevines and gorgeous gardens, we knew as soon as we had a look that we wanted to get married there.

The food was devine, all our guests were raving about it and it came out so quickly (we had some canapés after the ceremony plus a 3-course set menu with 2 options for each course and a special menu for the vegetarians and our one vegan guest -this was no extra cost and the options looked just as scrumptious as the regular menu!) The waiting staff were very attentive and during dinner we did not have to ask for any drinks as they always got to us before we needed to.
They were very flexible with everything which was a great plus for us (as many other venues had a set price which included a set amount of things and couldn’t be changed). We were able to adjust a lot of things to cater for what we wanted and I think it ended up being very affordable compared to a lot of other similar venues (we got married on a Thursday).
I had so many guests telling me how much fun they had afterwards which is always great to hear! I would highly recommend Gracehill for a wedding, I wish I could do it all again!

Grace Hill was an incredible venue and we are so happy with our decision to have our wedding here. With guests coming from across the world, we wanted one venue for the ceremony and reception. In planning stages, the team at Grace Hill were very accomodating and easy to communicate with via email. Also receptive to what we wanted and happy to meet our needs. On the day, everything ran like clockwork. Everything they promised, they delivered. The wait staff were efficient and had meals and drinks in and out quickly, no one was ever with an empty glass. Warren himself was constantly checking how we were getting on, if we needed anything etc. It was a perfect day and we couldn’t have hoped for anything more. Our guests have raved about the beautiful grounds, service and amazing food. We woud absolutely recommend this venue for any couple.

Although I am writing this review rather late (we've been busy with a new baby), my husband and I have nothing but good things to say about Gracehill. The food, the service, the organisation, the communication: everything was excellent. We have very fond memories of our winter wedding in 2015 and would truthfully describe it as the perfect wedding day! Thank you Warren and Linda for all that you did to make it such a wonderful occasion :).
