Highwic

Central and private, Highwic is a haven in the heart of Newmarket, Auckland’s premier shopping district. With the motorway nearby, Highwic offers easy access from the central city, north or west Auckland and the airport. A wide choice of motels within close walking distance offers easy accommodation for out of town guests.

Versatile and impressive, this Victorian gem is an attractive setting to invite your guests to enjoy unique elegance and charm. With beautiful grounds spacious enough for a large marquee, and plenty of on-site parking, Highwic is ideal for wedding receptions & cocktail parties.

For your wedding at Highwic, you can choose to be married in the ballroom or a tree canopied rise next to the croquet court is ideal for a garden ceremony. Availability of both spaces means you don’t have to be anxious about the weather. Being able to hold your ceremony and reception at the one venue saves a lot of hassle and hold-ups for your guests.

Highwic's historic Billiard Room seats 60 for your wedding reception and can be used in conjunction with the Billiard House or the garden for pre-dinner cocktails. Your guests can explore the Victorian mansion and grounds while you take advantage of the numerous photo opportunities around the property.

If you’d like to visit our stunning venue, send us an enquiry and we can organise a time to show you around the grounds and chat about how to personalise your wedding.

I feel like the small number of words I write here will not express how amazing our reception at Highwic was. We were set on having a High Tea themed wedding reception, and with the help of the glorious Sam, our dream was well and truly made into a reality. Sam was an absolute delight to work with; she was always helpful and informative. Not to mention that Highwic are so generous in letting us use their games, tables and chairs, linen, and venue for our photos. We feel like no other venue in all of Auckland could have given us what Highwic did - with the freedom to decorate as we wished, use our own caterers and even bring in a Mr Whippy van! Thank you so much Sam and the Highwic team, that beautiful house will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The guests enjoyed the venue and the Billiard House was perfect for our reception. We brought in our own caterers and drinks which was great for us. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Samantha and the team at Highwic were absolutely amazing. They were so flexible with what they allowed us to do and this allowed us to concentrate on planning our perfect wedding.

The grounds and facilities were stunning and a wonderful surprise for a number of guest who had never visited Highwic before. The ability to use the outdoor seats and tables was a real benefit and the option of an inside or outside ceremony setting, took the unpredictable weather headaches away.

We would highly recommend Highwic to anyone looking to host a wedding in Auckland. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful, the grounds and surroundings are stunning and this allowed our photographers to capture some amazing photos.

Highwic helped us create the perfect day, enjoyed by everyone with minimal stress.

Many thanks,
Tanya and Leon

We had our Wedding Reception at Highwic; utilising the ballroom for champagne, dancing and music; we then went to the Billiard House for the dinner and speeches. Given the wedding was Victorian Era themed, it was the perfect setting within Auckland, and everything went amazingly! The staff at Highwic have all been extremely helpful and welcoming, and we would highly recommend using the location for Weddings. We were able to take beautiful photos in the garden, as well as inside the house. It was truly a day we both look back on fondly. Thank you Elaine, Cheryl, Samantha, Chris, and Christopher for all your hard work to make our special day one to remember!
