Gracehill Vineyard Estate
Marrying next to a lake on manicured grounds, with grapevines in the background is a dream come true for many couples, and it can be for you at the elegant Abel Estate near Kumeu.
Originally the working vineyard Abel & Co, the venue started hosting weddings in the early 2000s under the name Gracehill. Abel Estate is building on that heritage, giving couples and their guests a fresh and stylish setting to love.
Not that you’ll be thinking about that during your ceremony at the gazebo or on the lawn, or while having photos taken amongst the vines, beside the lake or on the bridge over the stream.
Get your slice of heaven at this enchanting venue nestled in the bush of the Waitakere Ranges. You’ll feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown Auckland which is just 30 minutes away.
Fully renovated in 2019, Tui Hills brings together fresh, modern facilities with character and charm of the original venue hall. The native garden theme throughout will give your wedding a uniquely kiwi feel.
Whether you’re marrying in the secluded Kowhai Glade with its famous rotunda, or enjoying canapes and bubbles in the shade of the Nikau Pavilion, you and your guests will love being at Tui Hills.
“Thank you again for all you did for us leading up to the wedding & on the day. Everything was perfect, it was the best day the food & drinks were awesome the family loved everything about the venue.”
“The day was definitely stress-free and effortless. I knew the Tui Hills team had it all under control. A number of guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and likened it to something out of a fairy tale. “
Choose Your Celebrant…
Finding the right celebrant can make all the difference to your ceremony. They’ll help you organise your vows, help settle your nerves and guide you along the way on the day.
Just as importantly, they can set the tone of the ceremony – serious, lighthearted, irreverent, solemn – and make your guests feel welcome and included.
You can choose from our group of our hugely-experienced preferred celebrants. We’ll guide you through the process of finding the right one. Or, you can bring another celebrant you’ve chosen separately.
…And Your Photographer
Every wedding creates lasting memories. For that reason, it’s important that your wedding photographs are taken by someone skilled in capturing such precious memories, making you and the day look wonderful.
That means a safe pair of hands from an experienced pro. We’re fortunate to have a selection of seasoned wedding photographers for you to choose from.
You can select, based on their style, knowing that we high-recommend their work. In years to come you’ll be happy to show off those wonderful images. Or, you can bring along another photographer you’ve chosen.
