Hi Athina,
I apologise that it has taken this long to thank you again for everything you did for such a special day in our lives.
We had the best day and appreciate all your time and effort (and answering the many questions I had). You really went above and beyond, thank you for taking good care of us and making the day go smoothly.
We got a lot of compliments on the venue, the food and the service! I’m so happy it was a sunny day as well, so our guests could enjoy the outdoors and the games.
Thank you again,
Alysia and Ants xx

We would like to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to Chellie, our experience with her was absolutely flawless and we could not have asked for a better manager. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to the way she co-ordinated her team to suit our event, having only started with us 3 weeks before the event due to unforseen circumstances. There was nothing left undone, Chellie went the extra mile to ensure we were getting exactly what we had asked for, reassured us and was always on hand and easy to reach. She was extremely easy to work with and went out of her way to ensure our day was perfect.
Our experience truly would not have been the same without her. Thank you Chellie for everything, words cannot express how grateful we are for everything you have done for us, you made the last few weeks before the wedding an absolute pleasure. You are amazing, much love.

Hello Athena and all the staff at the Alleley estate,

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.
Greg and Nancy Barnard.

Hi Chellie and Athena,

Wow. What can I say other than Saturday was the best day of our lives. I really couldn’t have done it without you both and will be eternally grateful for everything that you did to make our day run as smoothly as it did. I haven’t stopped receiving compliments about the amazing service and staff and have had no problems recommending you to anyone that would listen. I can’t even begin to write down individually everything that you did, even though I want to thank you for each thing but there was simply too many to write down. You should be very proud of not only your staff but also yourselves for the way you made everything seem so effortless when it requires so much time and effort behind the scenes. I definitely have a new found respect for weddings and the amount of work that goes in to them!
I hope we weren’t too demanding or noisy in the lead up and on the day. We really appreciated you letting us extend for an extra hour. Our guests didn’t want the night to end! I hope it also wasn’t too much of a mission to set up for the next day (I don’t envy your late nights/early mornings!). I have small presents for both of you that I would like to pop in to give to you in the next few weeks. I am off to Hawaii tonight with the hubby (eeeee exciting!) so may be limited in email contact for the next few days but really am lost for words with how amazing the day went. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Kind Regards
Mr and Mrs Barnett

A big massive thank you to Chellie and the team for providing us with wedding of our dreams, we had such an amazing day/night celebrating with our family & friends. Right from the get go, the planning, the service, the staff, the food, the atmosphere and the grounds were perfect.. we couldn’t have wished for more. We wanted something different, they gave us “class”. We highly recommend these guys to anyone.
Thank you again and we wish you all the best.

Hi Heitor

Thank you for all your hard work and amazing customer service both over email and in person. You and your staff have been nothing short of amazing. It was one of the most relaxed and fun weddings I have ever planned and coordinated – and that had to do a lot to with the attitude of you and your staff.
I really hope I get to work with you guys again – I will definitely be recommending Alley Estate to anyone looking for a special venue for their wedding.

Hello Heitor and the wonderful Allely Estate crew

I just wanted to thank you all for your fantastic attention to detail and care and support to me during Scott and Hannah Aitken’s wedding on Friday the 27th of March. I was so grateful for you being in charge of the music, the microphone and all those other vital “behind the scenes” issues. 

Alley Estate is now my #1 favourite venue and I have been recommending it to all!

I do hope to meet you again sometime in the future for another wedding.

With kind regards and thanks,
Melanie Stuart (Wedding Celebrant on the 27th of March 2015)

Hi Heitor,

We had the most enjoyable wedding day. We both couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out, our family and friends were all impressed and have made many comments on how lovely the day and Allely Estate was. 

We want to thank you and the staff at Allely for helping to make our day extra special, thank you for all your hard work during the day and helping bring it all together. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Kind regards

Hi Heitor

I just want to say a massive thank you to you and all of your staff. You run a very tight ship and everything flowed absolutely perfectly! I could not have imagined anything better! Your staffs were so professional, polite and lovely to be around.

Hi Heitor,

I just wanted to get in touch to let you know how fabulous you and your team were on Saturday and the preceding months.

With all the stress and planning involved it was such a relief to be working with such a professional team, you in particular. I couldn’t speak more highly of you and all the advice you were able to provide. You were professional and caring and your experience was invaluable.

On the night I didn’t have anything to worry about which turns out to be quite important for the bride! You and the team were on point the entire time. From drink and food service to umbrellas and taxis your team was attentive, caring, quick, efficient, polite and genuinely cheerful. I have honestly never had such amazing service and every single guest mentioned to me personally how impressed they were with the staff and the experience they had at Allely.

I honestly cannot thank you all enough for making our night so awesome. I have been receiving compliments from everyone that it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time and, in my mind, the majority of that is due to you and your team.

I wish you guys all the best for the future and plan on having any future large functions at Allely Estate.

Thank you again,
Sarah & Kendall Cooper

Hi Heitor,

My whole day was amazing!! I was the bride & everything was absolutely gorgeous. The service was very professional we all loved how everyone at each table was served at the same time. All our friends and family commented on how lovely the waiters were and that their drinks were never empty. The food was to die for, the canapés, the entrees, the mains & dessert; our guests had something great to say about every dish that was served. Words can’t express how lovely this whole day was, thank you Heitor & Ashley, from Raquel.

On Saturday 15 November 2014 I conducted a Wedding Ceremony at your venue.I have been a Celebrant for a long time and see many venues, I have to say that that your attention to details is amazing, I found the staff well trained, friendly and well groomed.

Food presentation was great and the service was outstanding.

So a big “Thanks” from me and people I spoke to on the night were impressed, so I will give your venue a big tick.

Kia ora Heitor,

First of all, thank you for making the day so special for everyone. Despite the absolutely atrocious weather that hit us everything went off without a hitch, and that is due in no small part to you and your staff.

From the start you were prepared to build the event that we wanted, rather than fitting us into your structure. We agreed a price and that did not change. You also provided us all with good opportunities to visit, so we could get a good sense of how the day might work. The gardens looked immaculate and the marquee proved invaluable when the heavens opened!

We would be happy to recommend Allely Estate to others and have done so already.

Best wishes

I just had my wedding at Allely Estate and words don’t seem to suffice when trying to praise this venue. Every detail of our wedding day was planned, managed and executed perfectly. The staff provided exceptional service and the food was absolutely divine! I can honestly say that the food at my wedding was better than the food I’ve had at any other wedding by a long shot! If you are looking for a wedding venue book this place ASAP. Don’t toss up between here and anywhere else. I can guarantee that your wedding day will be a perfect day if held at Allely Estate!

Dear Heitor

Just a short note to thank you and your team for a lovely evening; you did a splendid job!

Everything came together seamlessly. Our guests went away impressed by your efficiency and professionalism. We had lots of positive feedback.

– The team provided great service, were easy to deal with, and took requests when discussing the menu and beverage options.

– The wait staff were professional, efficient, and always friendly and willing to help.

The food that we received was served quickly, and the guests at each table were all served their food at the same time which was great, no-one had to wait which meant we all got to start eating at the same time. The food was cooked extremely well and tasted fantastic.

Another special request fulfilled that did not go unnoticed was our request for specific wines. These were superb and the balance has been savoured.

Thanks for a great night,
The team at Resene Automotive & Light Industrial

Our experience at Allely Estate not only met our expectations but blew them out of the water.

Heitor and his staff were extremely attentive and the guests were very impressed with the standard of service, which many noted was up and over 5 star. The food was divine!

Our ceremony also ran like perfection with Heitor manning the music and the staff guiding the guests through to the garden.

Our photographer captured some amazing pictures aided most definitely by the pure beauty of the venue. We had imagery with a very vintage feel and others with the freshness of a modern garden all in one venue. What more could you ask for?

Overall, my experience at Allely Estate was everything I imagined and more. I would recommend this venue strongly to everyone who is looking for a simply wonderful venue!

The Perfect Day

A classic wedding with a touch of vintage is how Fraser and Caitlyn’s dream day looked. Both the ceremony and reception venues were carefully chosen to form the perfect background to reflect this theme.

The reception itself was all that the couple had dreamt of…fairy lights, live music, beautiful flowers, candles, silver service with excellent food by Event Catering and – most importantly – their family members bringing alive the day and dancing well into the night under a starry sky. Perfect
