I am going to a wedding on Waiheke in May so can report back for you! I live in Auckland so have been to the island a few times and have only heard lovely things. Weddings there are so popluar and its really hard to get prime dates esp. for cable bay so I am sure it will be magic. Have you been on the Nz weddings forum? There is a discussion there around Waiheke Island weddings just google weddings.co.nz.

The ferries are really regular so your guests can stay on the island or come back to Auckland depending on what they want to do. Assume most of them will be travelling i,e not local so there is a lot of accommodation on the island. Have you been there yourself??

Glad you love NZ – all Kiwis love to hear that!

Welcome @ScarletBegonia:!

We’ve stayed on the island recently and I think it’s a fabulous destination wedding idea. There’s a wide range of accomodation near Cable Bay Winery but the fantastic thing about Waiheke is wherever you are staying, you’re only about fifteen minutes away from everything else. When we were over there recently there was a couple having some gorgeous pics taken on Onetangi Beach – bear that in mind if you are looking for alternative photo locations. It might also be a neat idea to print out a list of attractions that your guests can partake in – we loved walking out to Stoney Batter and exploring the tunnels!
