Aston Norwood

ASTON NORWOOD is a fabulous 14-acre garden for weddings all year round, with a waterfall, river and many other beautiful spots to incorporate into your special day. "Four seasons in one garden" aptly describes Aston Norwood, with Spring being a particularly wonderful time of year for a fairytale wedding with the cherry blossoms in bloom, so make the most of the first glimpses of the sunshine at this gorgeous garden venue. And of course, the other 3 seasons offer an ever-changing landscape to capture your wedding. CATERING We offer a very flexible range of menus including Cocktail, Garden Party, High Tea and Buffet. Please get in touch to discuss further. GATSBY SUITE The Gatsby Suite is a room for elegant, fairytale weddings, a 350sq metre, high ceiling auditorium that can seat up to 150 guests. It adjoins an outside deck area with extensive views of surrounding secret gardens, ponds, river and farmland. The amazing Tararua Ranges providing a stunning backdrop to your photos.

My husband and I got married in January. For us the selling factor was the flexibility with the menu. We were able to come up with something to reflect our different cultures. And the quality of the food was great, our guests were very impressed. And even though it was raining on the day, it didn't affect the beauty of the event. The Gatsby room is just spectacular!!! Staff members were excellent and very helpful. Thank you for the support and the recommendations during the planning period as it really helped the stressed out bride! A beautiful wedding venue that we will definitely recommend to others! Anthony and Melissa Riordan

Thankyou to all the staff at Aston Norwood Gardens for truly making our special day perfect. Although we had planned for an outside wedding, it rained on the day, but this was no problem and our day couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to you. We are so thankful for the way you ensured everything ran smoothly, from moving the ceremony so quickly to the inside room, to having umbrellas available so we could still get our gorgeous garden photos. We were still able to do all that we had planned due to your amazing facilities, which provided us with endless indoor and outdoor options, and also gave our guests plenty to do while waiting around. The food was outstanding and the service was faultless. Cannot recommend you highly enough, we look forward to coming back to visit in future years to reminisce about our perfect day.

When asked by my daughter to organize her wedding reception I chose Aston Norwood and what an inspired choice it was. The setting in the "Gatsby Suite" was brilliant and the happy couple, making their entrance,sweeping into the "Suite" down the spiral staircase was spectacular. Food and beverage was excellent and photo's on the balcony and gardens are a permanent reminder of the special day. Many thanks to Belinda and her team for their assistance,professionalism and flexibility in providing a memorable event for my daughter. Venue highly recommended.

We cannot recommend Aston Norwood enough! Our wedding day went by without a hitch, the food was amazing and the service by the staff, especially Belinda (who we had multiple comments on) was outstanding. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day, but the photos don't do the venue justice. Such lovely gardens and so many beautiful photo opportunities! Thank you again to Belinda and the team for a wonderful day which we will never forget - we will be out to enjoy the food again next time we are back in NZ :)
