Any NZ or more likely Auckland bees here?? I just recently got married at Ascension Wine Estate in Matakana. So sad to read in the herald today that they have just been put into receivereship! Only 10 days after our wedding. I feel so lucky to have had an absolutely problem free wedding where EVERYTHING went exactly as planned but feel terrible for all the brides with weddings coming up at this gorgeous venue 🙁

@MeeShell: Ohhh seriously? That sucks. We got married in a winery in Kumeu as well!
They were fantastic!
And afterwards we had a local reception where we live, just a week before the venue closed down and it was a mess. Luckily our planners found another one that was way better.

@gramgeek: Gosh I cant even imagine the stress of a new venue just weeks out! Our photographer emailed today to say our pics are ready tomorrow, I told her about the receivership and she said she has 4 weddings there next season! Fingers crossed someone buys it and keeps the weddings going. Where did you get married in Kumeu? Im a bridesmaid at Grace Hill in December, cant wait!
@MsChandler: I know right! its so sad!

I just found this, you must have got married their not long before us! Our wedding went perfectly also, and still get comments on it.
My husband and I are now their poster couple for all their wedding advertising which is pretty cool! We went back there for our 1 year anniversary which was awesome 🙂
