Love the Manor House!
The Manor House in West Auckland is always fantastic to photograph a Wedding at. The staff are organised, attentive and a pleasure to work alongside. The venue itself lends itself perfectly to Weddings, with just the right mix of classic and modern that couples love these days. Can't wait to work there again!

Spa Day
We had a spa day. Helpful and friendly staff who gave us a warm welcome. Clean and relaxing facilities. Amazing afternoon tea, we had to ask for a doggy bag! The ladies gave great massages and were friendly and helpful. Would go again when in the area.

Hen Party
I stayed here last night for my Hen Party and the spa and hotel are absolutely amazing. The treatments I had were fantastic and very relaxing. The staff were so friendly and go out of their way to help. I was upgraded to a superior room and the room was the most beautiful room. I can not recommend this hotel and spa enough. The food was delicious. Aiden went out of his way to make sure this experience was the best it could be, what a fantastic person he is, it really makes all the difference. Stuart also added to this amazing experience, such friendly amazing staff. I will most definitely be returning with my (soon to be) husband. Thank you to you all Marie

We have so many fantastic weddings here it would be difficult to pick just one.
