Words can't express how thankful we are

Where do I start? Words cant express how thankful we are to you for helping to make our day perfect. You made the planning process so much easier with your helpful suggestions and ideas for caterers, entertainment etc. A large number of our friends and family have said fountain gardens is the most beautiful wedding venue they have seen, we couldn’t agree more. All of the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. One group even said it was so lovely out on the top lawn they did not want to go in side for the reception! My only regret is that the day went so fast!

Thanks again

Logan and Coby

We are so thankful to have been married as this special location

Thanks to Marie and her team for providing the perfect venue for our dream wedding

My partner and I had the most wonderful wedding at Fountain Gardens in March 2018.

Marie was amazing to deal with, always responding quickly to emails and absolutely amazing on the big day itself.
The grounds are spectacular with lots of areas to explore and a unique ceremony area – Walking through the native bush path was very special and the guests commented that it was nice to see the bridal party as we made our way down the hill. A perfect lawn for nibbles and lots of greenery for the formal family photos.

Perfect location for photos a couple of minutes up the road for the bridal party photos by the ocean-something we didn’t consider when booking so an added bonus.

Lovely area for the reception and perfect friendly and professional staff who were so helpful and made the grounds immaculate.

Thanks to Marie and her team for providing the perfect venue for our dream wedding

We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect place!

Fountain Gardens is an amazing venue. We were married here on the 11th November 2017 and we couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect place. There are so many great spots to take photos and for your guests to explore. It was awesome to have the canopy over the ceremony deck area as this allowed us to have our ceremony outside even when the weather wasn’t so great, the guests and ourselves stayed nice and dry. Marie was so lovely to work with and was always available to help or make suggestions with anything we needed. All our guest raved about how cool our venue was. We would definitely recommend Fountain Gardens to anyone wanting to get married in the Bay of Plenty.

Guests had nothing but compliments on the venue

fountain-gardens-testimonial-need-name-lr

Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful venue for us to celebrate such a special occasion at!

Everything looked absolutely beautiful and so crisp. I think having an overcast day made the surroundings look so much more vibrant. Guests had nothing but compliments on the venue and loved the walk through the gardens at their own leisure.

The marquee looked stunning all set up and even with the heavy rain we were all toasty warm and dry and it only added to the atmosphere.

Such a beautiful garden of eden

Mere words hardly seem enough when expressing our gratitude to you all for the care and attention you gave before and during Naomi and Anthony’s wedding.

Our guests were thrilled by the venue, and like ourselves, could not believe it possible to find such a beautiful ‘garden of eden’ in what is already a gorgeous part of the world!!

Thank you! Gary and Debbie Cunliffe
