Couples wanting a thoroughly New Zealand wedding have a gorgeous new option - Tui Hills, in the bush-clad Waitakere Ranges. It has a contemporary feel with a freshness that compliments the beautiful natural surroundings.
No other venue offers quite the feeling of seclusion, especially for the wedding ceremony, nestled amongst established native ferns and palms of the Kowhai Glade.
Protected from the sun and rain, that native garden feel can be enjoyed in the Nikau Pavilion,... View more with its huge, high canopy surrounded by ferns - a great place for outdoor dining or the ceremony if the weather turns.
The Nectar Room with native timber floors and windows provides the stylish indoor option. The nature theme is reflected with the hanging garden and an original Tui painting by Auckland artist Flox.
Enjoy a sumptuous selection of gourmet food from the Free Range Chef team led by Stephen Weeks, together with local wines from West Brook and Soho.
For those who enjoy champagne, Tui Hills is home to Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon. Bubbles packages include a free glass of these famous champagnes or West Brook's acclaimed Methode.
To suit a range of budgets and expectations, a selection of wedding packages is offered, from the classic bespoke option to concierge and luxury 6-hour pop-ups.
Whilst the venue may be new, the owners have assembled a team of professionals at the top of their game, with decades of experience in events planning, catering and front-of-house to make sure no important detail is overlooked on the big day.
Expect a wedding experience like no other, where you feel a million miles from anywhere, but just 30 minutes’ drive from central Auckland.
