Gracehill Vineyard Estate

Gracehill Vineyard Estate. A Kumeu wedding venue – one of the best.

Quietly tucked away in the backroads of Kumeu just 30 minutes drive from Auckland CBD is a lovely little gem of a wedding venue, Gracehill Vineyard estate. For Josh and Jane Gracehill Vineyard Estate was their perfect choice.

It’s famous rotunda forms the fabulous backdrop for their wedding ceremony. The vineyard, grounds and lake providing lots of terrific locations for romantic photos. The photos were really close to Jane’s heart, she’s a keen photographer herself so her wedding photos had to be a bit special.

Josh and his groomsmen landed 🙂 on the best place for photos as they got ready. The boys are all in the mighty RNZAF tasked as armorers so it was groomsmen preparation photos at Whenuapai Airbase. Totally cool unique venue for wedding photos. I’d love to shoot their again! I’m going to try and get into a Hercules next time. That would be a pretty special place for wedding photos. That would guarantee your wedding photos would be a cut above, truly unique and special memories.

There’s a romantic disused railway line close by.

A short ride from Gracehill Vineyard Estate in an American Classic wedding car there is an old railway line not much used by trains any more. We went to check it out at the pre-wedding photo planning session to see if it would be a good place to shoot romantic photos of theses lovely newlyweds. Is there anything more romantic that train travel? Not for Josh & Jayne who fell in love with the idea of photos at the old railway line in Kumeu. If your thinking of Gracehill Valley Estate as your special wedding venue that go and check out that railway line with your photographer.

Motoring back we had the pretty Romeo and Juliet bridge, willow trees and photos with the cute afternoon tea grazing table to look forward to. Laden with sweet treats, chocolates, cakes and lollies themed in pink and white it was breathtaking. Terrific job Gracehill Vineyard Estate team!

All in all Gracehill Vineyard Estate is a wedding photographer’s dream location. Well worth considering if your on the lookout for your perfect Kumeu Wedding Venue.
