Set amongst the vines of Matakana, Ascension Wine Estate is just a 40 minute drive from Auckland. It’s a quick jaunt, but the vineyard’s European-inspired architecture and dining, lush gardens and sweeping green vineyards make the sun-drenched vineyard feel much farther away.
From a fountain garden to a vineyard arbor, the spaces in which you can exchange your vows are many and varied. Cosy indoor spaces – such as wine cellars and a chapel – make the setting completely weather proof. Lest you find yourself craving those quintessential Kiwi beach wedding snaps, however, Omaha beach is just five minutes away in the car.
With 200 weddings under its belt, the Ascension team has mastered the art of hosting celebrations of all sizes and budgets. The estate’s head chef boasts extensive international experience, and has compiled a wide variety of delectable menus to choose from that cater for the most discerning palette, with the flexibility to accommodate all individual requirements.
Ascension Wine Estate is hosting its Bridal and Bliss Wedding Fair on Sunday, May 15, 2016. Attend for your chance to win cocktail wedding for up to 50 guests, and meet with a variety of suppliers.
