Kristin & Josh
22 November 2019, Abbeville Estate, Auckland
A charming wedding celebration at Abbeville Estate
Tucked away near Auckland Airport, the heritage-listed buildings and landscaped grounds that make up Abbeville Estate are over 150 years old and have been restored and contemporised, making it an ideal wedding venue under the careful organisation of Cherry and her team.

For their wedding, Kristin and her bridesmaids prepared at the venue's stylish homestead parlour, while Josh and his groomsmen got ready in the rustic barn, before starting the formalities of their day with a ceremony at the historic relocated chapel. With warm light entering through the stained glass window panes it set the most idyllic stage on this warm, sunny and windy day!
Rolling farmland and trees surround the enchanting property, while the canopy of the Estate’s grand Puriri tree provided cooling shade and an excellent space for the guests to mingle and enjoy some drinks, canapés and lawn games, while we took the couple and their bridal party around the property for their photos.
The night ended on a high with a 3-course seated dinner prepared by The Great Catering Company, lovely speeches and the classic but always entertaining shoe game before relocating back to the barn for the first dance and party with music provided by singer and acoustic guitarist Dean Te-Paa.
