Outdoor weddings are what we’ve become known for at Kumeu Valley Estate

And there’s so much to love amongst acres of charming gardens, with three romantic outdoor ceremony locations to create your dreamy summer wedding and a stunning indoor ceremony area featuring vaulted timber ceilings and a grand wood fireplace - a magnificent wet weather option and the perfect ambience for a cosy, rustic winter wedding.

pergola

Our charming garden pergola sits at the end of the aisle with rustic, wooden barrels and is surrounded by large trees offering shade and a stunning natural backdrop. The pergola can be adorned with fresh florals for a traditional feel, draped with swags for an elegant softened touch, or add flowing ribbons and lace curtains for that boho wedding vibe. Some couples even leave it bare and rustic as it is.

Forest Area

Cue the enchanting, whimsical wedding vibes… this is what fairytale wedding dreams are made of! The aisle is reminiscent of a woodland walkway with majestic Totara trees towering above. The wooden barrel and stacked wood stumps create a beautiful rustic feature or you can add florals, mason jars and candles for an even more whimsical wedding feel, we’ve even hosted the occasional twilight ceremony, featuring twinkle lights and candles for a dramatic enchanted forest wedding theme.

Cherry Blossoms

Say ‘I do’ surrounded by delicate, soft-pink petals and be one of just a few each year that get to capture our cherry blossoms at the peak of their beauty during late September and early October. It’s true that these beauties don’t bloom for long which we think is a perfect reminder to celebrate the moment! Cherry blossoms in full bloom are the epitome of a spring wedding and are sure to set the tone of innocence and romance for your garden ceremony.

Vaulted timber ceilings, wooden trusses & a grand wood-burning fireplace - welcome to your stunning rustic wedding setting; the Merlot room. This indoor ceremony area offers that barn wedding feel with the comfort of a toasty fire and a bar for after ceremony drinks. Romantic candlelight twinkles around the dancing flames of the fire creating the perfect ambience for a cosy winter wedding, the merlot room is a fabulous backup plan for an outdoor wedding and a spectacular first choice too!
