I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful afternoon & evening on Saturday. I was so impressed with how smoothly everything ran. The wait staff were also so warm and friendly - we felt so lucky.

Everything was PERFECT!

Thanks so so much - we’re so glad we picked The Riverhead’s Boat House.

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the Riverhead on Friday 22nd Feb, 2019 and we really wanted to take some time to acknowledge your wonderful staff.

First off could you please thank all your chefs because the food was superb, we had so many compliments on how tender the meats were cooked and how every dish was consistently yummy and amazing - such a credit to the team, we loved every bit of it, our guests enjoyed the selection and could not stop raving about the food. So thank you!
A massive thank you to the reception staff for ensuring all our guests plus ourselves were well looked after and happy. They were all very polite and friendly to the point where we could have asked them to join our celebrations!

Our last thank you however is the most important of all. We have already sent a thank you to Debra but we really felt it was important to let you know what a credit she is to The Riverhead, right from the moment we met/talked with Deb we knew we were in the safest of hands nothing was ever too much and she is so easy to work with. She is truly beyond amazing and I’m sure any couple who plan to have their wedding at Riverhead would feel the same. Debra thank you!! You are awesome we will definitely be recommending her/Riverhead to anyone who plans to have their wedding with your venue.

A million thank you’s.

Located in the outskirts of Auckland city to the Northwest …being only 20 minutes by car, or uniquely accessible by water by ferry or your own private vessel.

All we can say is Wow!! What an absolutely fabulous wedding we had.

The Boat House looked so stunning! Everyone commented on what a truly beautiful spot it was, how relaxed and easy the place was.

You both worked so hard to make our day just what we wanted and honestly it exceeded our expectations. The set up was so easy. Monique and her husband who set all our things up had only fabulous feedback and said Sally was wonderful.

The small things really blew Morné and I away. Having a drink ready right after the ceremony. Keeping aside some canapes so we didn’t miss out during photos. And Morné and I loved how one of your staff members in particular made sure we always had a drink if needed.

Sally you were so easy and made sure the night was perfect. Deb all your hard work right up to the day was so appreciated. Nothing ever felt like it wasn’t achievable whilst at the same time you made sure you only said yes if it was possible.

We loved every minute of the night and are loving being married.

Thanks so much
— Olivia and Morné Nel
