We had virtually everyone say that the wedding was the best they have ever attended... even the Pastor from Rotorua said the same. We were so happy with everything, the way you managed the whole process from start to finish was excellent, and somehow you managed to keep calm despite some last minute changes! Thank you to the staff at the Stables, for all your hard work and a job well done

We got married at Stables on the 29th July 2017. Everything from the first visit and then all the planning meetings went smoothly. Woody and the team are so welcoming and on the night everyone including myself were raving about the food and the staff being out of this world. It was such an amazing experience and a huge thanks to everyone at Stables for making our special day perfect!

We had our wedding reception at Stables and the food was exceptional. Many of our guest commented that the meat was cooked to perfection, the wine was beautiful, and the serving sizes were generous. The team were great to work with and very accommodating. The setting is lovely and we had great time. I recommend it.
