We had our wedding and reception at Sanctuary during February 2013. Despite getting the only rain in the middle of a drought it was a perfect day. Bruce was helpful at all times and even had a good supply of nice white umbrellas just in case.
The venue couldn't have been better and easily accommodated the 110 people present. We hired an 18m X 15m stretch marquee that fit perfectly in front of Cove Cottage. The cottages were great for the Bridal and Groom parties to get ready in and were useful accommodation for selected members of the wedding party.
The garage was suitable for the excellent catering we received through Food at Wharepuke who came out from Kerikeri.
Overall it was everything we could have wanted in a venue for the type of wedding we had planned. We got many positive comments from our friends and family who attended.
