We had our wedding at The Stables Matakana in October and after having to postpone due to COVID lockdown earlier this year, we couldn’t have found Georgia and the team to be more accommodating or easy to deal with. They happily rebooked for us and we’re great with communication and my thousands of questions! Our guests raved about the food, and the decorations on the day were exquisite - better than we had pictured! The venue is a great place for a romantic, moody and rustic wedding and the day ran smoothly from start to finish! Can’t recommend the stables enough! Thank you for making our day so special! 😊”

Wedding Reception of our Dreams! We had our wedding reception here on 16th November. We found this as our wedding venue because we had a lovely family lunch there a year previously. Georgia and Kim did an amazing job at setting up our decorations. It is a beautiful rustic venue and the staff are amazing. We had so many compliments on the food served which is no small undertaking serving 90 people all at the same time. Would highly recommend!

The Stables did an incredible job of making our wedding reception so special. Kim and her team went above and beyond to personalise every aspect of our night and looked after us so well. Our guests raved about the food- most said it was the best they've ever had at a wedding. Thank you Kim and The Stables team for your amazing work!

The Stables, Matakana is a great one stop Wedding venue. My wife and I had both our ceremony and reception at The Stables and it was just perfect. The grounds are so well maintained and both the ceremony and the reception were set up just the way I wanted. All the staff at The Stables were so helpful and polite. I organized the wedding from Australia so communication was very important to me and Kim was amazing. She was 100% on top of everything. All my guests were raving about the food as well. The portions were generous and it was delicious. I was so thrilled with The Stables.
