Went to Allely Estate’s Fawlty Towers dinner and had an absolute blast! I hadn’t encountered anything like that, it was like being inside a TV show. Also despite being in a room full of strangers, it felt like everyone was friends. The food was also scrumptious and the venue beautiful.

We attended a theme night on Friday 5th as a belated anniversary dinner. We were totally floored by the beautiful ambience of the venue, the most wonderful and attentive staff who looked after the extra needs of these geriatrics. The food was superb and their personal gift to us for our occasion completely threw me.

We have a had a couple of rough years but this was one very special occasion made so by the host and staff of this venue.

We have dined in venues around the world, and this one is right up there with the best. Thank you does not cut it, really appreciated the evening.

Fawlty Towers Event - 5th July 2024

Allely Estate

We had our wedding at Allely Estate in March 2024 and it was everything we dreamed of. The estate is beautiful, filled with greenery and plenty of space to accommodate numbers. We went with an outdoor ceremony in front of the hedge (same area can be used for the reception underneath their fairy lights) with the reception inside the marquee. The team were professional, friendly and very supportive when it came to incorporating cultural aspects such as the food and performances (lion dance performance). There are quite a few places in driving distance which can be used for bridal party photos (we went to a forest area in Riverhead). We knew we were in good hands and had the utmost trust in the team at Allely. Catherine, Peter, Mariana and the team were nothing but amazing to us. I would highly recommend Allely for your next celebration 🙂

We used Allely Estate for a TV shoot. It is a wonderful location with various spaces available to create the perfect event and film location whatever the occasion. Beautifully maintained gardens and villa. The catering was delicious, generous and well planned.

The owners and staff were wonderful hosts and nothing was a problem. Highly recommend.

Catherine Cooke, your hospitality and location were just so amazing, we honestly could not have made this without you and your team. Thank you so much! And the talk of the screening was still the catering at Allely!

As a wedding photographer, I have photographed several weddings at Allely Estate over the past few years. I have found the venue to be excellent at taking care of their guests and making their weddings an easy and straight forward process. The opportunities for beautiful photography are abundant. I personally love the open field next to the estate the most. Photographing at Allely Estate for me has always been a positive experience.

Allely Estate was fantastic for our wedding. From the first minute that the wedding car drove up I received a hug from Wendy. My husband and I were treated like family and every want, need, and whim was sorted. Our family are still raving about the incredible service and food. 10/10 Best Day EVER!

From the moment we visited Allely Estate, we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Athina and the Allely team were amazing in helping us on our planning journey, always communicating and proactively managing things that came up and last-minute changes. The day of the wedding is something we will never forget. The Marquee was decorated beautifully, more than what we could’ve hoped. The food was incredible, the drinks were flowing. Everyone who attended had the best time and couldn’t believe how great Athina and the team were. We are forever thankful to Athina and the Allely Estate team for making our Dream Wedding Day come to life.

Thank you to our beautiful photographer Belle Cooper Photography!

Gorgeous venue, and we had the privilege of visiting for the business awards.

Would highly recommend this for special events, especially weddings. The Villar is lovely, and I especially liked the landscaped gardens, so well kept, peacefully located off the roadside, and private with pretty cobbled areas to gather and mingle.

Lovely food and wine.

2 weeks ago, we got married at Allely Estate, the most beautiful venue. The weather ended up being great we didn’t even need to leave the venue for our photos. I had my eye on Allely Estate way before I was engaged for my wedding and started dreaming up our big day. It’s the only venue we checked out and stuck with. The team at Allely Estate and all the vendors we worked with made my dream wedding happen – Yvonne & Ben, Faledekeke, and Dj Keenz. But especially my favourite lady Athina – an absolute gem and wonder to work with. She made sure I was stress-free throughout all of the planning, made sure I didn’t make any unnecessary silly decisions, and then even flew back from Greece the night before for us (well at least that’s what I tell everyone haha). Everyone loved the hospitality from the staff, the food was great, and it was the best night! Thank you so much Allely Estate, I’ll think about my wedding day forever and know I chose the right venue!

What a dream venue. From the moment we met the real star attraction, Athina, to arriving at the beautifully decorated venue on our wedding day, the staff serving a large platter of fresh canapés in the bridal suite, the atmosphere, we couldn’t have asked for more. The attention to detail from planning to execution was fantastic.

Thank you Athina and team for looking after us so well, and for the top-tier service. We felt like family more than clients.

I just had to take a moment to give a massive shout-out to the incredible team at Allely Estate! 🌟 Not only do they create magical moments for couples on their big day, but they also go above and beyond to look after their vendors! 🙌

Feast your eyes on this scrumptious vendor meal they provided me with 🍽️😋 – I mean, how amazing is that?! 💖 It’s just another example of the attention to detail and the love they pour into everything they do.

As a wedding photographer, I’ve witnessed firsthand how Allely Estate genuinely cares for their couples, ensuring they have the most unforgettable and stress-free wedding day. 🥰💍

If you’re looking for a stunning venue with a team that truly cares, I wholeheartedly recommend Allely Estate for your special day! 💒💐

Thank you, Allely Estate, for treating us vendors like family! 🤗👏

Allely Estate was the most gorgeous venue for our Augustine event, ‘Winter Wonderland’. The ambiance was perfect with all the fairy lights and lit-up marquee.

Athina, I had you in my speech but you weren’t able to hear it – so this is for you….

“If you had told me 35 years ago, while I was sitting in the principal’s office, again. In trouble for being caught over at Kelston Georgie Pie during school hours, again. That the girl sitting next to me, who came up with a mighty fine excuse to get us out of detention from memory, would one day be the Event Planner at my future daughter’s wedding, I would have fallen off my chair.

Athina – for all of the planning & organising that you’ve helped these two with over the past couple of years, to bring it all together today in this gorgeous venue, Allely House they are very lucky to have you, and so are we.

You are great at this, so thank u my old friend. Old young friend 😉”

Thank you will never be enough for all the time & effort you’ve put into the biggest day of Eden’s life, just know I will be forever grateful Athina – you rock xxx

Your attention to details and hospitality skills are incredible! It was so easy to work with you and you made the event preparation 100 times easier for us as you took care of everything!

We appreciate your help endlessly and we would like to say a huge THANK YOU!

As soon as we walked into Allely Estate, it felt RIGHT! The entire atmosphere was just so calming and beautiful! – from the luscious green gardens and lawns to the marquee to the beautiful indoor and outdoor flow and set up!

Everything was just so MAGICAL!

The Staff were extremely friendly and Athina was the cherry on the cake! Her charisma and passion was so infectious! Us and our entire family just loved her! She was so reassuring, patient, and accommodating and gave great advice! She worked her magic with making sure everything went accordingly to plan and paid close attention to detail.

The whole Team at Allely Estate were AMAZING!

Everyone at the wedding was looked after really well. Our guests were very impressed by the service, and we received immensely positive feedback! The staff are so friendly and considerate and made sure that the bridal table was fed and hydrated 🙂 Our entire wedding ran so smoothly because of their hard work.

We had an outdoor dance floor with overhanging fairy lights on our wedding day and even though it was raining on the day, we had a short window when the rain stayed at bay. During this time, the team worked very quickly to dry the dance floor so that we could have our first dance outside because they knew how special that moment was to us. We were so touched by this – how Allely Estate went above and beyond to make our wedding day more memorable!

We really appreciated it! We are so glad to that we celebrated our special day at Allely Estate 🙂

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for providing us with a wedding event that everybody enjoyed.

We’ll all have very fond memories of witnessing and celebrating the marriage of Olivia & Mike.

We’ll also, in a positive way remember the weather where the torrential rain didn’t hamper the enjoyment, we all had during the evening.

This was mostly due to Melissa keeping us informed of the situation and was also very accommodating as we worked together to make slight changes so that everybody remained safe and could continue to enjoy the event.

Thanks, Melissa you and the team were AWESOME 👏

We’ll certainly have no hesitation in recommending Allely Estate as the place to go to in celebrating any special event!!

Many thanks.

Allely Estate is AMAZING🔥🔥 We cannot thank you enough! We enjoyed our wedding and had the best time of our lives! Definitely a memorable day all thanks to Allely Estate & their amazing staff 😍
IN DETAIL👇🏽
Allely Estate was so beautiful & I couldn’t fault anything from the venue, staff, service, food, to communication. We dealt with Athina all the way up to the wedding. Melissa then took over on the wedding day! Tori also assisted us on our wedding day! I have nothing but praise.
All the staff involved were amazing 👏🏽 they deserve to be acknowledged! Athina, Melissa & the team, your work up front and behind the scenes definitely made our day EPIC. They were angels who were helpful, lovely, and friendly and as my grandmother in Samoan language acknowledged the staff as “mata ataata” meaning smiling faces. They were the BEST! Our families loved Melissa & the team, they were strangers who became family by the end of the night!!
The venue was elegant and beautiful, which fit our rustic theme. Marquee was spacious, there was enough room for 100 guests to be seated and move around freely without being too close.
The food was delicious and top quality🤩 Served alongside the excellent service.
We had an epic night. One we will never forget. What a way to end 2022 and begin 2023 by having our wedding at Allely Estate. We cannot thank you enough! Highly recommend Allely Estate.
YOU WON’T REGRET IT 🥂

A few days late, but this past Saturday was our very first wedding anniversary. We relived the day through highlights of our photos and videos while we enjoyed the bottle of wine from our special day at Allely Estate. It does NOT feel like a year since you helped us plan our perfect day, and we both still buzz a little when we get to talk about it.

This was just a little note from us to thank you again, you really did help us craft a perfect wedding.

Lots of love,

Our wedding at Allely Estate was a life highlight, for sure. Everything ran so smoothly and was so much fun. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the venue was, how good the food was, and how well the day ran. The way it was scheduled made it an engaging and exciting experience that never dragged. Although our ceremony got rained indoors, the villa was beautiful and intimate. When the weather eased, the courtyard was so perfect for our first dance. The venue has tons of areas that make for gorgeous photos. The staff were friendly, attentive, and accommodating. Everything was set up perfectly without us having to oversee on the day, so we were free to prepare and enjoy the lead-up. Thanks to all the staff at Allely!

It was the perfect spring garden wedding. The heavens smiled upon us and offered us a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon to have our outdoor wedding. The staff were so helpful, and unobtrusive. They knew the best times to check in on us, offer us water to remind us to keep hydrated in our busy times, and platters of appetizers in the bridal room while we were catching our breath before our wedding dance. We were on schedule the whole time, and everything was well-organised. The guests couldn’t stop gushing about the venue, food, and service. Thank you, Allely Estate staff, for making our wedding so memorable. We will be definitely recommending your venue for any future events or functions.

I had a fantastic time at The Engine Limited‘s Business Forum on Workplace Wellness at the beautiful Allely Estate in Kumeū on Wednesday.

Highlights include:
⭐️ Hearing from the trailblazing Charlotte Lockhart 4 Day Week where I learned it’s about creating a balance between keeping your business, clients, and your people happy, and that we borrow people from their lives. I’ve been following Charlotte for a good 4 years. It was such a treat to hear her speak in person.

⭐️ Learning about the current state of the economy with hilarious comedy from the always entertaining and informative Tony Alexander (if you don’t already subscribe to Tony’s View make sure that you do!)

⭐️ Being inspired by the courageous ladies at Organised Chaos, where I learned from Julia Grace 🎤 about the lizard, mouse and monkey brains, that stressed out brains are offline brains. We are all on a wellbeing spectrum and we can always get weller. When we are mentally unwell, we are usually the last to know, and to never book flights under pressure! Thank you for sharing your beautiful voice in your empowering version of “True Colours”.

⭐️ I learned from the incredibly inspiring Christine Rankin about transformative leadership, to keep going even when facing extreme adversity and that we need to lead, follow or get the hell out of the way! (And to watch Ted Lasso!)

⭐️ From the amazingly articulate 🌟Monica Moore I learned that to change our world, we need to change our stories, through her hilarious speech with props, and FLIP – find life in problems.

⭐️ Winning a spot prize of a free tax and cashflow review from Walker Wayland Auckland Limited

⭐️ The food at Allely Estate was exceptional – gourmet breakfast, morning team and lunch.

I really enjoyed the conversations during the breaks and met some interesting people from all kinds of backgrounds! (even gave out a few sneaky business cards). I love organic connection opportunities and unexpected conversations – you never know what you might learn!

During one of the exercises at the forum I reflected about why I do what I do. What I came up with was that I have a dream of wanting people to live their best lives. I don’t want work to be a barrier to that. I want people to feel safe enough to bring their whole selves to work. I want people to have time back to spend it on the things that bring them joy. I want people to be guided in a way that allows them to thrive. I want people to be treated fairly and equally.

Thanks Catherine Cooke (née Sherwood)Peter CookeZoe Vickery, Stacey Hornell and Athina K. and the team at Allely Estate for a great forum (after over 2 years of disruption!). I will certainly be joining the next one.

We couldn’t stop smiling for weeks after our wedding here! Athina made us feel like family and that anything we wanted was possible.

Our wedding was straight after lockdown so we had to deal with traffic light introductions and vaccine passes as well but it was a walk in the park with the help from Allely Estate. We are super grateful to have been married here, and could not recommend Allely Estate enough, to anyone considering getting married here in the future.

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 afterward, 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.

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!! 💍❤️

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.

Absolutely wonderful place to get married. We had the most amazing day. Athina has made our journey throughout so easy and made us feel comfortable with levels changing from orange to red reassuring us along the way. Such a stressful time organising a wedding and throw in covid to top it off. But all went well.

Thank you Athina for all your hard work leading up to and on the day you are amazing and will highly recommend you as a wedding planner for my future Brides

” On behalf of the Barnard and McConnell families, I’d personally like to thank you for the wonderful services provided by you and your staff for the wedding of my daughter Tiffany Barnard (now McConnell) to Phillipe Luke McConnell on the 8th December 2017.

Your professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure this day was as perfect as possible for all involved is testimony to both your abilities in management and your love for what you do.

You truly made this day so special and the facility itself is the perfect venue for such an occasion. Thank you so much for your dedication to the event and for your genuine approach and understanding in light of the importance of such an occasion, particularly to my daughter and son in law and both our families. Our congratulations to all involved. Please accept our deepest gratitude. “
