Allely Estate

Set in the picturesque town of Kumeu, just 20 minutes from central Auckland, Allely Estate is the ultimate venue for a romantic wedding.

With our elegant heritage villa, a stunning outdoor marquee and beautifully manicured gardens, Allely Estate makes the perfect backdrop for a garden party wedding.

Located on the beautiful property that once produced the popular Selaks Wine, our purpose-built open-sided marquee is a standout, especially when it’s draped in fabric or adorned with floral styling. Walk up the tree-lined path to exchange your vows in the marquee or in our pretty courtyard – there are plenty of wet weather options too (it’s always good to have a plan b with Auckland’s weather!). Because of our villa and extendible marquee, we can host intimate weddings of 40 guests up to large parties of 400 – we’re the only venue of our size in the area.

Sneak off for photos while your guests enjoy playing games of lawn croquet, petanque and giant Connect 4 and Jenga. As well as the Allely Estate grounds, there are some amazing locations for photos nearby, including Muriwai Beach, Woodhill and Riverhead forests and vineyards.

Meals are a highlight of any Allely Estate wedding – our experienced chefs can cater to anyone’s needs, cultures and ethnicities. They happily offer complete flexibility at planning time, from sit-down silver service to amazing buffet feasts featuring all your favourites.

When dusk fades to night, the garden takes on an ethereal look with our fairy lights. It’s the perfect place to dance the night away.

Allely Estate has a complimentary wedding planner dedicated to helping you organise all the details you need to make your special day everything you’ve dreamed of. She’ll work with you to create a day that reflects you and your budget – nothing is too difficult for her! She’s an expert in local entertainment, decorators, photographers, florists and accommodation and she’s used to working with brides and grooms based overseas, too.

We know this is one of the biggest, most special days of your life so we offer a truly flexible service to ensure you get the perfect wedding in the most stunning setting in the west. We want this to be a day to remember – for all the right reasons. See our Facebook page for all the brides and grooms who loved their day with us. We hope you’re next.

Messages from our happy couples and guests

"The most amazing team at Allely Estate. I cannot thank Athina enough for bringing my special day to life. She was an angel through some trying times. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. I planned my wedding in ONE MONTH. With being in a crunch for time and having a range of questions and requests, Athina really catered to everything I wanted. We didn’t have the biggest of budgets but working as a team we made do with what we had! This place will hold such a special place in my heart as this was where my mum shared her last bout of energy and walked me down the aisle. My mum adored Athina and said she was an angel sent to us at the perfect time. I asked Athina if I could shave our heads for cancer here and she supported us the whole way. She took care of my mum when she was starting to feel weak throughout the night. I am so overjoyed to have been married here. The whole process was stress-free and I cannot recommend them enough. Love, love, love Allely Estate." - Jony and Alistair

"I would absolutely love to thank and recommend working with Athina from Allely Estate! She was incredible! She helped me and my partner plan a wedding with only 4 weeks' notice. From beginning to end she made the whole process completely stress-free for us. When we told her we didn’t have certain vendors organised she made a few quick phone calls and booked us everything we needed and more! We can’t thank her enough for helping us through this journey! We never would’ve had our dream wedding if it wasn’t for her and the lovely staff at Allely! The whole venue is incredibly beautiful & she walked us through the whole process of the wedding as we had no idea where to start, she helped us with everything, and we are so grateful for her! Also would like to mention the staff gave 5-star customer service the whole day and night through. Athina we would like to thank you for being so AMAZING, reliable, professional and fun to work with. I would 100% recommend her to anyone getting married you don’t want to go anywhere else!!" - Gjertine and Junior

"We wanted a venue with a proven track record and a planner we could enjoy working with. We are doing this once and wanted to get it right, and Athina was full of suggestions, ideas, and contacts to get our day planned in no time at all. From themes to décor to vendors, every recommendation turned out to be a winner. No plan survived 2020/2021 unscathed, but Athina was always available to hear our concerns and find us another calendar slot to try again! When our day finally arrived, it ran like clockwork. If I could, I would even credit Allely Estate with providing the sunshine! The staff was friendly and efficient, the venue was stunning, and the food was outstanding. For days afterwards, we kept hearing from guests eager to tell us how much they enjoyed our wedding and how well we had chosen our venue. Thanks again to Athina and the Allely Estate team from the new Mr and Mrs Keene." - Leeza & Justin Keene
