Amazing place . So beautiful my husband and I had our whole wedding here, the ceremony, the reception and the photos! It was beautiful. There were so many lovely spots to choose from. The staff were great and accommodated to all our wishes. A beautiful spot all year round, not far from Christchurch but feels a million miles away.
