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 80 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.

“I attended the most amazing wedding here on Thursday. I can’t express enough how incredible, 5-star, amazing the staff were. Even when servicing the table, they were all in sync when serving our platter. Even more, the coordinator of the event – Athina – served the bride and groom, what humility!!! She was on fire that day from start to end; HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her, she made the venue! The venue was so secure and private. Gardens were trimmed to perfection.

With a full heart, thank you for everything Athina – you were my favourite vendor to deal with, with your lively, bubbly personality.
