“The Wharerata team are superb! They took care of everything to make our wedding the easiest thing ever. Right from the start Frances had everything organised for us and Sean put together a stunning menu – we had so many compliments about the food. During the whole event Wharerata staff were on hand guiding us, from cueing us when to walk out for the ceremony, to getting things ready at a moment’s notice so that the whole event was seamless and smooth. The venue itself is superb with tons of photogenic spots, but it’s the people who really made Wharerata shine. Thanks for making our day so awesome Frances, Sean and team, we love your work!” – Lisa Wilkin-Krug
