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’s 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 bride 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 bride and grooms who loved their day with us. We hope you’re next.
MESSAGES FROM OUR HAPPY COUPLES AND GUESTS
"Thank you Athina and the team at Allely Estate for giving us the most beautiful and magical wedding we could have asked for. It was impossible to be a 'bridezilla' knowing that you had such a fantastic team ensuring the day ran smoothly. We fell in love with Allely Estate the moment we saw the villa and gorgeous gardens. We love that Allely Estate is a venue that has it all, from a place to get ready before your wedding, to the ceremony, to cocktail hour, the sit-down dinner, speeches and dancing. We even stayed on-site for our photos, which meant we got to spend more time with our guests who had travelled to be with us. The other thing that our guests still talk about to this day (nearly a year later) is the delicious FOOD!!! A special thank you for catering to the various dietary requirements with ease. If anyone is considering Allely Estate for their wedding venue, go for it! - Sarah & Andrew Kendall
“THE.BEST.EVER. Athina & her team made sure we were well looked after and the food was absolutely amazing. The venue was amazing. The service was amazing. The whole team went above and beyond for us and we will forever be so grateful. We had zero complaints! Everyone complimented on the amazing job Allely Estate had done on the day. Thank you guys so much for putting up with us for those 12 months. The worst break up ever, we miss you guys so much!” - Sandy & Philip Kumar
“We left the wedding with our hearts feeling so full and cannot thank you and your team at Allely enough for giving us a day bigger than our dreams had imagined.” - Amy Waite
“We had our small winter wedding at Allely Estate in June 2019. Athina was our wedding co-ordinator and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. We started planning our wedding only three months beforehand, and Athina was great at helping us create our checklists, timetables, and vision for the event. She listened to our needs and concerns, and had business acumen to accommodate them. On the day, she made everything run smoothly, even when things fell apart at the seams (literally). She co-ordinated us, made sure we were lined up on time - in other words, did everything the bride can’t do herself on the day. The food was so delicious, so well presented, and the portions were generous - even our hungriest guests were struggling to finish their desserts! Athina also kindly made us Greek spinakopitas for cocktail hour - such a kind gesture, and our guests loved them. The wine selection was quite nice as well. The venue itself was beautiful and had everything - great places for photos, plenty of space, options for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions. We had a great time and so did our guests. I strongly recommend Athina and Allely for whatever function you're planning.” - Moria Brengauz
“We just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU!! You made our special day everything we could’ve dreamed of and more. The venue, food, drinks, lights, grounds, everything was incredible so thank you thank you thank you!! We have guests that are still raving about how yummy the food was & how beautiful the venue is! I have been recommending your venue to others, because how could you not love it!” - Jaydene & Sam
