Venue for Wedding Reception - Garden Wedding Venue | Bridgewater Estate

The Venue

Bridgewater Country Estate is a tranquil 16 acre haven situated in the middle of the tourist loop that runs from Auckland through the Kumeu wine district and back down through the rolling pastures of Albany. Bridgewater is a leisurely 35 minutes drive from central city Auckland.

The elevated, sun-drenched terrace has the most magnificent panoramic views.  Overlooking one ceremony site with a cute chapel, the 180 degree view from our private native bush through the garden to the pool will take your breath away.

Notes from the Guestbook

Bridgewater is a beautiful venue and it works really well for corporate planning days! I am a professional facilitator and coach, I worked with a Senior Leadership team of a Technology Business at Bridgewater for a day of business strategy and planning.  The quiet surrounds, being outside, and tasty catering meant that we were able to achieve all our objectives and more.  I was really impressed with the organisation and attention to detail of the venue organisers.  I would recommend Bridgewater to those wanting to have a successful external event!
