Whenever driving to Omaha from Auckland - I always noticed Ascension. From my early teenage years, I dreamt of having my wedding there. After 10 years with my high school sweetheart we finally booked the venue. We were over the moon with the landscape, design and the reception room lay out. It is the perfect venue. Our photos look stunning. As I was planning our wedding from Perth, I had a few anxious moments. However, the staff, (especially Carlie) were more than accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted. We visited the venue the day before our wedding just to go over some final touches and I have to say, meeting everyone there was just such a fantastic experience. Ascension also help with the hireage of anything you may need on the day. From chair covers to special lighting. Ascension made our wedding dreams come true and I am forever grateful.

My daughter chose to get married at Ascension Wine Estate because of the tranquil setting, however, the quality of service and food that came with the wedding package exceeded all our expectations. The Ascension team, headed by the Artisan of Events, Carlie, could not have been more cooperative and pleasant to deal with, including being able to accommodate last minute changes in numbers and arrangements. The whole wedding was professionally managed (including having readily available alternatives in case the weather was unfavourable) and conducted in a relaxed atmosphere. There was no rush to vacate by a certain time which was also appreciated. Highly recommended.

Ascension is a superb venue! Their attention to detail in the pre planning of our wedding was exemplary which ensured a day that ran without one hiccup! Carlie was a pleasure to work with and she took all the stress away which meant a very happy bride and groom. The venue on the day was stunning. The gardens were manicured perfectly and the setting was perfect. We chose the buffet menu to speed up the process and it was just pure class. All guests spoken to just raved about how good the food was! Feedback from the 80 guests….the best wedding ever!

WOW. What magical day. The best part for me (apart from marrying the girl of my dreams) was how easy the whole process was. From back-up plans, to ideas when we got stuck, to communicating and looking after our guests. It was all handled. Nothing was too hard or couldn’t be done. Carlie was very friendly and hospitable every time we went to visit and we could tell that she was genuinely interested and excited about our big day. I would without hesitation recommend Ascension to anyone who is looking for ‘that perfect venue’ We had many comments like “the best wedding I have ever been to” and “The most beautiful wedding I have been to” Ascension didn’t treat us like a client. They treated us like family. Thank you Carlie & Ascension.
