    If you are looking for the most gorgeous, stress-free and fun-filled venue in Auckland: Look no further because you have just found … More it!
    Tabula Rasa set the scene for our perfect wedding day and we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time. The gardens, the pool, the catering and the friendly team had so many rave reviews from our guests and we really appreciated having a bit of stress removed from ourselves when it came to setting up and all the behind the scenes on the day itself. Our goal was to make sure our guests had a great day and they were certainly kept entertained by all the lawn games and the exquisite food and well stocked bar.
    We would definitely recommend Tabula Rasa to all

    We had our wedding here in January and it was just the best day! We chose the venue because of the stunning grounds - we loved that … More we could have the whole day at the venue as there were lots of beautiful spots for taking photos too. What really made our day special was Caryn, Trevor, Pam and the rest of the team. At every step of the way, they went above and beyond to make things really easy for us. We didn't have to lift a finger! Our guests all commented on how awesome the team were too! The food was definitely a highlight. We had canapés on the lawn followed by a delicious buffet out by the the pool. Everything was tasty and beautifully presented. We highly recommend using Tabula Rasa as your next event venue!
