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!

We had our Art Deco themed wedding at Highwic and it was wonderful! The staff were so helpful, replied to my emails super fast and were always more than happy to help. 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!

Having our wedding at Highwic great!! Being central meant it was easy for all our guests to travel. Definitely all positive feedback. We only heard great things about how beautiful the location was and it was small enough to be an intimate location. Thanks again for all your help and assistance, you made the whole planning of the wedding a lot easier.
