We descended upon the great Ascension Wines, in Matakana – in celebration of another birthday for one of our best friends, Angus. For regular followers of this blog, and the old one, www.warrenwilliams.co.nz/blog – will recognise Angus from the amazing trip Warren had away in India for a month over Christmas and New Years just gone. Ascension Wines provided great meals all around, fabulous service, and an amazing picturesque surrounding.
Warren & Katrina loved the feel here and decided to speak to the residing manager about weddings there. Basically they have a perfect, trendy setup, with seating for up to 200 people, a beautiful courtyard, and many rows of vineyards ideal for funky photos. Also not too far away from the white sand beach of Omaha – a perfect spot for bridal photos. 😉 FYI, they’re run by the Soljans, (another great venue in Kumeu, West Auckland). http://www.ascensionwine.co.nz
Anyway, here’s a few moments caught from our afternoon in the sun, in hot Matakana.
