We had our wedding here in May 2021 and had the best time! The Stables were so accommodating, especially in the midst of planning for a wedding during the uncertainties of Covid-19. We initially planned to get married in January 2021, but due to family being overseas, we asked if we could postpone to a later date. The Stables were responsive and considerate during those stressful times. A huge highlight for us was the wedding coordinator, Georgia! She is super friendly, organised and the perfect person to cater to our wedding needs. From emails, decor, preferences, enquiries, etc, she was great! [Thank you so much Georgia :)]. We held both our ceremony and reception at the venue, and it all went smoothly. The servers were so efficient and helped pack up everything (florals, dishes, decor, etc) for us. We could enjoy the day completely. We would totally recommend the venue for an event like a wedding!

We had our wedding here in amongst COVID angst and uncertainty and the team were phenomenal. From the initial viewing right through to the picking up of items the next day, they went above and beyond. Their all inclusive package really does take the pressure off the day and we would highly recommend it. The venue itself is stunning, and has so many options for the different parts of the day. The food was incredible, all our guests commented on it and the team were especially great catering for allergies and intolerances. The team are flexible and accommodating throughout the whole process, and the combination of this with the quality of the venue, food, etc really is well worth the $$. They really know what they’re about and pride themselves in making your day perfect. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

After Covid having to make us postpone from our original date. Georgia was accommodating to help us move the date without any costs and made things so easy for us. Everyone who attended our wedding raved at how awesome the venue was, the food was and everything about our wedding was awesome. Couldn’t have had the day we had without Georgia and the team!

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! 😊”
