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

I just wanted to give some feedback from our day, there are so many cool photos from the venue, so many amazing spots for photos at the venue! We are still getting so many compliments from our day, everyone loved the venue, one person said they went to a wedding there years ago (before the chapel) and didn't remember it being as beautiful.

We loved working with Justin and his team, our wedding day was absolutely perfect and our dream day. Justin made sure the day ran smoothly and has an eye for detail. We felt that Justin was passionate truly cared about our wedding and wanted to make sure it was the perfect day for us.  We chose the buffet and the food was amazing! and all the staff were friendly. We loved the grounds, so peaceful and beautifully kept, with so many different photo options it was perfect! We had so many compliments on the day, we loved how we just showed up to the wedding and everything was set up exactly how we wanted it.  

Thank you Justin for helping us have our dream day.
