Wedding at Alberton

Your wedding at Alberton

Alberton is one of Auckland's most popular heritage venues for garden weddings and wedding photography. Couples from around the world have chosen Alberton for their special day.  There are a number of suitable sites that can be used for a wedding ceremony or civil service:

  • In the garden near the fountain
  • On the ground floor verandah
  • In the garden settings, with marquee option for up to 120 people
  • In the Ballroom, which also serves as a good wet weather option should the front steps not be able to be used.

The exotic verandas provide a glorious backdrop for the ceremony, wedding photographs and for a celebration function. Couples are welcome to arrange their own forms of entertainment, catering and refreshments to create a memorable occasion.

We can recommend preferred caterers, celebrants, photographers or equipment hire companies if required.  Note - Stretch limousines are not able to access the driveway into the venue.
