Planning a wedding from overseas is never simple, but with the help of the staff at Riverside Matakana, we pulled off a 4 day weekend retreat (with a wedding in the middle).
We chose Riverside because of the beautiful surroundings as well as the friendly staff. There was plenty of accommodation for all our family and friends, and Riverside took care of everyone's needs throughout the 4 days. Through emails and a few phone calls, we expressed our needs, and Riverside coordinated everything for us!
Close to markets, wineries, restaurants and beaches... there is something to please everyone. And for those not wanting to leave the property, there was still plenty to do including tennis, swimming, a walk down to the jetty or even just relaxing in a beanbag working on your tan!
A very special thank you to Kelvin and Michael for helping coordinate all the transportation during a busy holiday weekend!
