We had our Wedding at Mission Estate Winery on January 14th 2017 and I could not fault the day! The venue was amazing, the scenery was stunning, the service was second-to-none and the team completely exceeded our expectations.
Erin was INCREDIBLE! From the moment we chose the Mission, Erin worked closely with us to create our dream wedding. No request was too difficult and we were made to feel like our wedding was the only one Erin was planning. Erin always went above and beyond what was required. She offered helpful suggestions and thought of things that hadn’t crossed our minds.
The food and wine was to die for and all our guest commented on this. They catered for our guests with allergies and the wedding menu itself has a huge selection. There are so many inclusions in the wedding package you choose, like the Bridal hamper, candelabras, bridal parlour, printed menus, sound system, isle carpet. shade umbrellas, wet-weather venue, linen, glassware, tables etc that other vendors don’t include.
For such an exclusive venue with such outstanding service, Mission is very competitive & I cannot recommend Erin & her staff highly enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

If a fairytale wedding is what you are after, then the Mission Estate is definitely the right venue to celebrate your magical day.
Everything about the experience was absolutely perfect.
From the very first contact with Erin I knew we had made the right choice. Erin was extremely accommodating, very professional and took all the stress out of planning our big day.
Every detail was catered for; even to the point of making sure my Father could access Skype literally at the last minute so that my Grandparents could watch the ceremony from Ireland.
Erin and her Team were extremely attentive and so delightful. Having worked in the hospitality industry myself for many years, I could not fault them. Our guests were highly impressed with the service they received, the food and wine and the stunning venue itself.
I could not have asked for a more exceptional day.
Thanks a million!!

Just a note to say a HUGE thank you for Saturday. Jeremy & Kate"s wedding was just wonderful.
Your organisation of the day was faultless. Everything flowed as it should have. The guests all raved about the venue in particular the food.
Usually when you are hosting an event it is hard to relax & enjoy yourself but Aaron & I both had a great stress free time.
We would absolutely recommend the Mission to anyone wanting an amazing wedding venue.
Thanks once again.

Our wedding at Mission Estate was truly incredible. My partner and I both agree that it could not have been a more spectacular day and exceeded our expectations threefold.
The wedding co-coordinator Erin Speakman is by far one of the best in the business, her attention to detail, expertise and friendly manner certainly made us feel that our wedding was in great hands.
The staff were great helping to ensure that everything ran smoothly and they really looked after our guests. The food was outstanding, so much and so delicious, we had so many comments about how great it was.
The venue itself was exquisite and being in the gardens made our guests really relaxed. We had so many positive comments from our guests saying it was one of if the best wedding they had ever been to (nice to hear).
If you are planning a wedding in Napier I highly recommend Mission Estate, it truly was one of the best days of our lives together thus far.

Erin and the staff at The Mission ensured that our wedding day was a truly magical one. We both had so much fun and it was everything we had ever dreamed of and so much more.
The Mission is such an amazing venue but it is all the behind the scenes work that makes for such a seamless event and The Mission staff are professional, efficient and nothing is ever too much for them.
We would highly recommend The Mission for anyone planning their wedding - it is the most stunning spot and the staff make it so easy and stress free - which is saying something since we were planning our special day from Australia!

Erin & the Mission Estate staff were just fantastic, from the first email through to post-event.
Erin is very organised & professional, making the organisation of what was effectively a destination wedding (we live in the South Island) easy & stress-free. She was able to recommend great suppliers to deal with & answered all our questions promptly. Nothing was ever a drama
Our wedding day went off without a hitch & we didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. The staff were so friendly & welcoming, the food was amazing & it wasn’t a problem to cater for any food allergies.
We just had a fabulous time, enjoyed ourselves & got amazing photographs to remember it all by! Our guests without exception were very impressed & are still saying what a fantastic day it was.
For such an exclusive venue with such outstanding service, Mission is very competitive & I cannot recommend Erin & her staff highly enough.

Mission Estate was truly the prefect venue! Our day was amazing, beautiful and went without a hitch. This come down to the help and impeccable planing of Erin. This venue is stunning and well presented. The food is to die for and so is the wine. We have nothing but the most positive feedback and everyone just loved it there. It was so perfect I find myself looking at my ring finger to make sure it wasn’t a dream.
