Wedding Venue


We offer 3-4 locations within an expansive private garden for the wedding ceremony, all with sweeping views over Hawke Bay across to Mahia Peninsula.  


For the wedding reception, we have a large marquee lawn with a 35m x 13m limestone floor pad overlooking the fountain and two grass tennis courts.

Event Services

You may have your own contacts however if not we have a list of recommendations of local contractors who we know offer a very good product and service and are familiar with Cape Estate.


Venue Fee


We charge a one-off venue fee of $5500 plus GST which allows for a maximum of 4 days of setting up and pulling down.  There are no time restrictions in setting up or on the evening of the wedding.  Safe and secure parking is available and there is bus access to the garden gate.

Planning for your Day


Cape Estate is a quiet, very private space for you to create a wedding day to suit your own taste and budget without any restrictions or additional fees.  The booking of Marquees, tables and chairs, catering, loos, band, celebrant etc are areas which you can choose according to your taste and budget.  We can also help with regards to wholesale rates on wine from the local wineries, Te Awanga Estate, Clearview and Elephant Hill.
