Wedding Testimonials

Where do we begin in trying to express our gratitude for allowing us to use your beautiful home and for everything you did for us over the Easter weekend? We still can't quite believe how perfect everything was!

Organising a wedding from the other side of the world was never going to be easy, but it was so reassuring to know you were there to give us advice whenever we needed it. Your recommendations for the celebrant and hairdresser all worked out so well, and organising the lamb and crayfish through you made things run so smoothly.

You were so kind in giving up your home for the weekend to allow our family to use all of the amazing facilities and really make it an occasion to remember. The Quarters was the perfect venue for our ceremony - the photographs don't even do justice to how amazing the view was. We'd always dreamed of having an outdoor reception so the Homestead garden was just perfect - we wanted that rustic and relaxed outdoor style that fit so perfectly in the beautiful garden.

We hope to return to Te Au Farm in the future to visit the Pohutakawa that our family had planted in our honour, and of course to visit you Malcolm! Mahia was always a special place to us, and now the farm will always hold a special place in our hearts – it gave us a day more perfect than anything we'd ever imagined!

With very best wishes

We both just wanted to express our thanks and gratitude with your help to make our wedding day just simply amazing! Grant was fantastic! He was so helpful and really really lovely to deal with. And his cooking skills were amazing, we had the best meals on our entire honeymoon staying at the Quarters.

All in all the day went as well as we could have every hoped and everyone was blown away by the beautiful surroundings and how stunning the venue was!! It really couldn't have gone better. Even the weather turned out absolutely stunning despite a wild storm the night before. Your home is truly gorgeous and it just fitted with the theme of our wedding so well. It really was such a special day and I don't know how to express to you enough just how thankful we were with the trust you showed in us to allow us to use your home even with you away.

The Quarters too were simply magical, the weather was perfect the whole time and it was just stunning, we were mesmerised by the view and I think I took a billion photos of it while we were there. The quarters themselves had everything we needed and was just the right place to recoup after the craziness of organising our wedding. It will always be a very special place to us and we both look forward to spending many more future holidays there.

Once again thank you and we hope to see you again in the future.

Warm regards,
Karen & Daniel Stolt
