Highden - Weekend Wedding
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 16 April 2015
Ray and I had the most amazing wedding at Highden Manor Estate in March 2015. We booked the weekend wedding package which was absolutely wonderful. This allowed us to catch up with friends and family who had travelled on the Friday night before the wedding, as well as the brunch on Sunday. It was really great having everything in one place: accommodation, ceremony, reception, catering, photographs etc. Thanks so much to Andrew and Avril for going out of their way to make this a wonderful wedding for us.

Fantastic Wedding Venue
"My partner and I spent the weekend (6th-8th Feb 2015) here for our wedding and couldn't have been happier with how the big day turned out!
When we first viewed the website, we were instantly hooked by the beautiful grounds and the majestic interior of the manor and got in touch with the owner, Andrew, right away. He was very pleasant throughout all of our communications and happy to help and make sure our day was perfect.
We visited the manor on a few occasions prior to the wedding and Andrew and his wife Avril were very welcoming and listened to our requests. They allowed us to roam the grounds freely while they retreated to their home so we could get a good feel for how the day would pan out.
When the wedding day arrived, everything turned out wonderfully. Our guests were welcomed at the door by Avril and one of the daughters and shown to their rooms, as Andrew and his staff worked tirelessly in the kitchen preparing the food. The other daughter also helped by reareanging tables and chairs and creating the outdoor setting where the ceremony would take place.
The weather was fantastic, the day was brilliant and our guests also told of how much they were impressed by the venue and its services. They were all very happy with their rooms and were pleased to wake to a complimentary breakfast!
All in all, a fantastic venue and would recommend to anyone planning their wedding day. Top marks to Andrew and his family for helping the day to turn out as well as it did! " Stayed February 2015, travelled with friends

"It was a lovely week-end, lovely people, ambiance, great food and music, and that unreal but gorgeous mansion"
"Highden were able to give us a beautiful venue to invite all our friends to a weekend in the country. This magnificent historic home in the Manawatu just off SH3 has gained a new lease of life. Forty friends were able to stay one or two nights, and the food was fresh and wholesome as we wanted. Our guitarist Graham Wardrop played beautiful music, and guests and hosts enjoyed themselves. We are delighted that this grand residence is being visited and used and congratulate Andrew and Avril on their dedication to its future.
"From the moment we arrived at Highden both my Husband and I felt like we were taken back to a beautiful place in time, every detail of the Manor has been taken care of with no expense spared, which just makes your journey with Highden even more magical. The care and professionalism that Andrew, Avril and the team gave us were second to none on our special day and we will forever be thankful for that.
In a nutshell we would highly recommend anyone that is thinking about having a wedding here to go for it, you will not be disappointed. We most definitely will be back to stay at this beautiful Manor again in the future."
