Bridgewater on Top Reviews

Access Date & Time 2022-06-27 21:24:37

We are so excited that this month, Bridgwater Country Estate have been featured in the 'Top Reviews NZ' website for one of the best wedding venues in Auckland.  

When Justin and Tracey took over the venue over five years ago, they had big dreams of growing the business but keeping the venue as an exclusive 'semi' unknown venue.  They have been able to get that balance right, because five years on, business has grown by over 30% (even during the difficult Covid times) but yet they still hear from their couples and guests that they "never heard or been here before".  

To be recognised as a top venue in Auckland is acknowledgement of five years of hard (and at times interesting 'thanks Covid') times.  

Thanks Top Reviews for the vote of confidence and review.

We have all been to weddings where no one is up on the dancefloor and you wonder "why"?  Why has no one got into the party spirit because after all, it is meant to be one the happiest celebrations around.  So what could be the reason...... 

Royal Wedding equals traditions, but how traditional are we now?

Less than a week to go until the big royal wedding where we will be treated to the traditions of all things royal.  While many of the traditions that the royal family have does not apply to many of us, it does make me ponder around how many traditions are still common in todays weddings.

"Bridgewater" the perfect backdrop for your photos

Recently we hosted a photo shoot for one of the leading wedding magazines which will be on sale shortly.  This was really exciting to be a part of and we cannot wait to see how the photos came out.  Stunning models to work with so let's hope the backdrop that Bridgewater offered, complimented the amazing talent.

Why do Venue Hire Cost so much?

Recently I stumbled across an article which is extremely informative to our couples who are questioning why it is a large investment to hire a wedding venue. It is worth a read but by all means, we would love to speak to you if you are overwhelmed by the cost and we can talk it through further.

Reflection on what is important to us all

It is the 26th December, the day after the special time of the year. It is a great time for reflection on the year that has just been and also looking ahead into the new year.

Why do we walk down a straight aisle?

I recently came across the idea of different aisle layouts. This made me start comparing the traditional straight aisle to the new trend of circular aisle.


We held our wedding here. The staff were very polite and professional as were the owners. They meet all our needs to make our day a fantastic day. Thank you all so much
