Wedding of the Year 2020 at Allely Estate: A Testament to Our Expertise

One of the most remarkable stories that unfolded at Allely Estate was the Wedding of the Year 2020.  Allely Estate was the chosen venue, and Joni & Alistair’s wedding was planned within one month.  


We were humbled to be involved in their love not only for each other but for what their families were experiencing with Joni’s warrior mother’s cancer battle and her wish to two soulmates get married.  Joni and Alistair trusted with us to surprise their family and friends and shave each other’s heads in honour of Joni’s mum and raise money for the cause.  It was one thing to be involved in this special surprise, however it is one of the most tear jerking and powerful moments we’ve witnessed.  Emotions overtook us that we had been part of this amazing wedding delivery and entrusted to further deliver.  The full story can be found in our blog here.

Anna and Brendan’s summer wedding was brought forward due to Anna’s mother’s terminal illness. Despite the challenging circumstances, our team worked tirelessly to create a magical day for the couple and their loved ones. The event was a testament to our expertise in handling last-minute weddings with grace and professionalism.

Anna and Brendan’s heart-warming story can be found on our website, showcasing the love and support that surrounded them on their special day. The beautiful photos and heartfelt testimonials from the couple and their guests speak volumes about the exceptional experience they had at Allely Estate.

Cecilia & Marcel's and Kim & James's Last-Minute Weddings: Overcoming Cyclone Challenges

In addition to Joni & Alistair’s & Anna and Brendan’s wedding, along with many others, we have successfully hosted last-minute weddings for couples facing unexpected challenges from Cyclone Gabrielle – February 2023. Cecilia and Marcel, as well as Kim and James, had their wedding plans disrupted with their venues unable to continue to host them.  Our team at Allely Estate stepped in to ensure their dream weddings became a reality.

Speaking Cyclones let’s also mention the mammoth task Allely Estate’s owners and team achieved in bringing a community together to fundraise over $70,000 for the displaced residents of Muriwai.  This event was brought to life with 3 week’s planning and delivery which required building quick relationships and rapport with local businesses, Rotary, and others.  The full blog is here
