The Wharf - Wedding Venue
We were lucky enough to be invited to the Auckland Weddings vendor event at The Wharf last week to catch up with others in the wedding industry. It was a great chance to chat with others in the industry and gain some valuable insights. It was also great to catch up with Coralee Stone, our favorite wedding photographer who helped capture our special day 3 years ago!
There are some really cool businesses out there who offer new and unique services and products. You can check them all out on the Auckland Weddings website which has everything you need to help you to plan your wedding celebration. We'll tell you about a few of our favorites in future blog posts but for now we want to rave about what an epic venue The Wharf is! Wow!
Tucked in under the North Shore side of the Auckland Harbour Bridge it boasts stunning panoramic views of Auckland Harbour with the CBD burning brightly in the distance. The facilities are top notch and the recent redesign has created a beautiful and unique setting for a wedding celebration. We especially loved watching the sun set and the city lights slowly emerge highlighting the cityscape creating a spectacular and magical backdrop. It is a very private and a relaxing place and we enjoyed having a drink on the deck. We can picture it being a perfect atmosphere for a wedding.
The Wharf offers both outdoor and wet weather options for wedding ceremonies. There are a number of different spaces that can be used depending on the size of your wedding, each with their own characteristics from small intimate weddings to larger gatherings of up to 200 people. The Wharf offers great packages which include wedding planners and an experienced event management team which will take the stress out of organising your big day.
We were also treated to some delicious and beautifully presented hors d'oeuvres and would love to go back for a full meal - here is a taster of some options from the menu. Delicious!
We met the lovely team who look after the wedding packages and other services at The Wharf. They provide the complete wedding planning package and can take care of all the finer details for you. They offer free consultations to couples planning their wedding so if you need some inspiration, drop them a line. At the very least, drop in to see the venue - it's definitely worth the short trip across the Harbour.
