Magical Matakana Matrimony

This lovely couple chose a rustic theme as they both love the outdoors; emanating simplicity and elegance. Ascension Wine Estate in Matakana is one of our favorite locations and these two both grew up in this region so it was important for them to be married here. 

"It was the perfect fairy tale princess dress which was my dream. As soon as I had it on I knew it was the one. I absolutely love every part of the dress. I loved the detail of the gold beading and I loved the tulle."

"Heather from the Takapuna store was amazing. She was so patient and went above and beyond to help me find my dream dress without any pressure to have to decide. She also helped match my dress with the perfect veil and shoes."

"Arriving in the horse and carriage was a massive highlight, it had been a dream as I have been riding since I was four."

We both fell in love with Ascension because it is stunning and has a beautiful outdoor arbor which went with our rustic theme. They also offered the best backup option if it was wet and had a great area for guests to socialize in between the ceremony and reception, making it a perfect all in one venue.

" the reception we had a surprise mother, father and daughter dance."
