We want every detail of your celebration to be a pleasurable and memorable experience and will help you customise everything from wine and food choices to planning your décor.

Claire will work with you to help you plan your day and put your own personal style towards transforming the cellars into a beautiful banqueting hall with room to dance the night away. From flowers, cakes to hey will liaise with your chosen suppliers and ensure everything is delivered on time and to your specifications. Even dealing with guests queries should they call to find out information.

Once you have booked your wedding, you will receive a wedding pack with more information on how to make your special day go perfectly. All suppliers in the pack have worked at Mahana and are tried and trusted – it works as a team effort and it works!

"Doug and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your wonderful staff for helping to create Jo’s dream wedding. She often said how amazing you were to deal with... how friendly, helpful, fun yet very professional you were. We were so happy they chose Woollaston as their venue as it is so stunning and picturesque. On October 20th it was so perfect. THANK YOU. We now look back with wonderful memories and know Jo and Mike were so happy. The photos so far look amazing. THANK YOU for all your organising and planning. Cheers and Good Luck. Hope we get to enjoy another event organised by you at Woollaston soon. We will be recommending you to all."
