Why a Spring Wedding?

Spring Wedding

Spring is the ultimate time of year to have a wedding! Everything is fresh, green and coming to life. A fresh start for the next step in your life together with your partner. Late September and early October our cherry trees make the most spectacular backdrop for photos. Some of my most favourite flowers are available only in spring, in particular, the Peony!

Should the blessing of rain come on your wedding day, rest assured that we have one of the most beautiful wet weather ceremony locations. Our rustic fireplace is the perfect backdrop on a cool wet day. The room also has air conditioning so if it is warm and wet you can still enjoy the beauty of a real fire and the coolness of the air conditioning. This room is an intimate setting and slightly darker lending itself perfectly for a few candles to set the romantic scene for your ceremony. We also provide you with white umbrellas to use while taking photos.

In Spring little bugs can be around more than other months. We keep bug spray (non-scented) at the bar for you and your guests to make use of. If you have a multi-layered dress little sand flies find them irresistible. Spray the dress lightly before you head to the venue and you should be just fine. Our gardens mostly focus on greenery and fewer flowers which help to keep the bugs away.

Spring Wedding Photography

Spring nights can be cooler but most wedding gowns are styled for summer in New Zealand. Think about some wraps for your bridesmaids and maybe even fake fur. They look great in photos and are perfect for that midnight air as you depart. Our venue has underfloor heating, however, come October/November when we find our blast heater most effective to keep guests comfortable. You may wish to bring some throws for your smoking guests to snuggle up with while outside.

Spring Wedding Specials

One last touch to consider. With damp weather being a possibility, you should consider your hairstyle for the day. If you’ve always dreamed about loose curls but your hair doesn’t hold a curl in the wet, think about having hair extensions woven into your hair or think of a style that will look good no matter what the weather throws your way. Remember you are in Auckland and spring can bring all seasons in one day.

We offer great spring specials from mid-September to the end of November; including a honeymoon night’s accommodation, free fairy light package and an elegant touch to the toilets with individual hand towels, aromatherapy soap and hand creams.
