Kathleen & Clayton - April 2019

"From start to finish, our experience was nothing but positive.  We had a great time on the day, Casey and Estelle helped make the planning process a lot easier.  Everything was as expected and went without any problems.  It was an amazing day."

Sukhi & Matthew - February 2019

"We were absolutely stocked with how amazing the venue and setup was honestly, could not have been happier.  Our guests were blown away by how stunning the grounds were and how great the venue was, and most have said it was the best wedding they've been to (I think you guys and Hamilton surprised most people!!) - and most people traveled from either Auckland or Vancouver to be there and have been to more than a few!  You guys were also amazing to deal with before the wedding everything felt planned and organised right down to the last detail which was fantastic."

Miriam & Ash - March 2018

"Kirstie, Thank you very much for hosting our wedding at Woodlands. I couldn't have been more happy with how everything looked on the day!

I felt the entire lead up was taken care of, you were excellent at communicating and making sure you were in tune with my overall vision for the day. 

I had so many guests commenting how beautiful and ethereal our day was and I definitely have you to thank for your part." 

Shannon & Michael - March 2018

"Perfect all in one Venue! Our venue planning was awesome and stress free. Kirstie (and Team) and Tayla were amazing and worked very well together. Perfect for photos. It was a great day and the team were very helpful with our last minute ceremony location change due to the rain."

Jess & Tane - February 2018

"You guys were absolutely fantastic during and leading up to our wedding, everything was a totally smooth and easy process - you even managed to keep me calm when the rain came 

The venue is stunning, almost all of our guests had something wonderful to say about Woodlands and all of us thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the gardens and through the homestead. Please give our compliments to Kerr & Ladbrook on their food - it was divine! Our guests are still raving about it. We will most definitely be back to visit!"

Catriona and Jay

"Catriona and Jay said "To me, gardens are always magical and I wanted to get married in spring when they were blooming with flowers. Jay and I chose Woodlands in Gordonton for the unique charm its gardens held. With the billowing and enchanting 100 year old trees, it felt like a secret garden in the middle of the country. While we were getting formal photos taken, the guests played cricket, relaxed at the cafe, walked around the garden and explored the historic house."
