Directory Venues in Rodney & Hibiscus Coast
At Markovina Estate we take pride to ensure that each and every wedding reception we hold is as special for us as it is for you. We only operate one wedding per day so you can choose the start and finish times to suit your requirements.
Our venue is specifically designed for weddings with guest numbers of 70 or more. We have the flexibility with the design of our venue to ensure that smaller groups are able to have an intimate day as well as being able to open up our venue so that much larger receptions can enjoy the unique experience we create for you.
By choosing to have your wedding at our estate we look to include most of the elements required for a magical day as part of our wedding package. When your guests arrive we will set the tone with soft background music being played throughout our gardens, these expansive gardens ensure that there is ample space for your guests to mix and mingle as well as explore the outdoor areas and pond features.
Thank you Rina and team for helping us put on a wonderful wedding.
Markovina is a wonderful place to get married. The venue itself is gorgeous and we had so many comments on the beauty of the venue, as if we designed it ourselves!
Rina, you are wonderful. Your professionalism and your ability to stay on top of everything made our event go so smoothly.
The venue is easy to find, only 30 minutes from the CBD with ample parking. But for those that need to cab, it was $60 to Pt Chev and $100 to CBD.
Our wedding was a dream, and it was in large part to the wonderful team at Markovina. We will recommend you for as long as we can. Thank you for everything.

Quintin and I just wanted to say a big huge thank you to Mark, Rina and the team at Markovina for everything you did for us leading up to and on Sunday for our wedding. We could not have picked a better venue to have our wedding at. The gardens and reception area were amazing, the food was divine and Rina’s continual support and checking in with us throughout the night was fantastic. We forgot our cake topper and were stressing a little bit about it and Rina went out to the garden and picked us some beautiful flowers to put on top of our wedding cake to finish it off. We could not be more happy with the amazing service, care and attention to detail that was put into making our wedding perfect from Markovina. So from us both a huge thank you and we will be recommending Markovina to everyone that is looking for a fabulous venue!

I can’t express how lucky we were to get such a fantastic venue to celebrate our wedding! When we first went to see it, we immediately noticed the gorgeous gardens and reception area which we thought was the better ones out of others we explored in the area. However, there was more to Markovina that meets the eye which was realised on our wedding day. We are still getting lots and lots of compliments about the venue, in particular how amazing the food was and also how attentive and helpful the staff were. The day ran so smoothly and everyone was happy and well catered for. Rina’s calm, caring and ‘can make anything happen’ approach was greatly appreciated by me too! Thank you all at Markovina!!

Markovina is just a magical place. It added this romantic and magical touch to my wedding. I had so many positive feedback about the beautiful venue outdoors and the indoor and the tasty food.
Rina and her son Mark are very accommodating and easy to deal with. They went above and beyond to please us and sorted out many things for us. I can’t thank them enough.
I really hope someone I know have their wedding there so I can go back there. I really love this place and we didn’t even had to travel places to take bridal party pictures, we did it all there in the venue. The wedding pictures are just stunning because of that venue.

We would highly recommend Markovina to anybody, we had an absolutely magical day there.
The food was exceptional, and they catered wonderfully for some complicated dietary needs. The setting is just gorgeous. Rina magically makes things happen on the day, all the whilst looking extremely calm and in control, leaving you to enjoy the day as much as possible.
Mark and Liz were wonderful in the planning stages, and patiently dealt with many emails from the bride.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience getting married at Markovina.

SIMPLY THE BEST!!! The Greatest host ever, Ms Rina herself, and the venue alone was absolutely AMAZING!!! I recommend anyone to have anything at Markovina Vineyard Estate. Most places have limitations & restrictions on what you can have, but Markovina made all my impossibilities POSSIBLE!!! The quality of the service, food, availability, music equipment, anything & everything I demanded, Rina made it happen. The price was also of course not only affordable, but worth every cent. THANK YOU RINA & ALL AT MARKOVINA VINEYARD ESTATE FOR MAKING MY WEDDING THE BEST NIGHT EVER!!! My guests spoke about the venue for weeks and more will be checking Markovina Vineyard Estate out. ps: even my limo driver complimented that Markovina provided the best service to customers that they’ve seen around Auckland. ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EVER!!!

We had the most wonderful, perfect and magical autumn wedding day, thanks to Rina and her very professional team who deliver 5 star service, fantastic food and amazing dessert.
Markovina stole our heart the moment we laid eyes on it, even when our first visit was on a rainy, cloudy and cold winter day, walking down the gardens with umbrella in hand fighting the winds and heels sinking into the ground; there were no flowers or leaves in the trees but still… the venue and the ground were just perfect to us and took our breath away.
Markovina surpassed all our expectations and we will have no hesitation in recommending it to any newly engaged couple as a superb wedding venue.
Thank you again for making our wedding special, amazing and memorable.

Our experience at Markovina is just something we will never forget and will always suggest to our friends and family.
Thank you once again to the entire team at Markovina Estate, you made our day unforgettable!

We could not have had a more perfect day.
Rina and her team helped create a problem free day, and took away any stress we might have had.
We knew we didn’t have to worry about the weather as the wet weather option available on the grounds is just as nice as the gardens, which reduced the stress of worrying about the weather leading up to the big day.
So many options for photos, we never once felt the need to go off site.
The food was fabulous and the day was just amazing, we have had so many comments about how great it was.
Thank you very much for creating our perfect day.

Wow is what comes to mind, Rina and her crew were outstanding and gave us a day to remember. The venue is stunning all of the guests commented on how beautiful it was and that they couldnt get over how helpful the staff were. I turned up in a truck and Rina was there at the gate to make sure everything was running smoothly. The food was outstanding and again everyone commented on the high quality. If you are looking for a venue my new husband and I would highly recommend Markovinas as its a one stop venue whom provide everything. When it came to table setting and design Rina came up with the ideas and put it all into action. Thank you to Rina and her staff you were all fantastic and thank you for making my special day one to remember
