Bronte Country Estate has been at the heart of my family for five generations. Even the history of the peninsula holds an element of romance, as the name ‘Bronte’ was given by a British Admiral as a tribute to his love. It is a timeless setting in which to celebrate a wedding, and we look forward to helping you create the first chapter of your own history together. We welcome any enquiries about our estate and event packages for on-site guests using the form below.
Bronte Country Estate offers 5-Star luxury accommodation for 12 guests, nestled on the headland of historic Bronte peninsula amid expansive gardens. Packages for events which include accommodation for one night in 6 double rooms, a customised four-course dinner and gourmet breakfast start at $7,550. Bronte Country Estate is 25 minutes drive from the seaport city of Nelson, New Zealand.
The gardens at Bronte consist of two acres of formal gardens and an acre of parkland. Garden paths meander beneath old established trees, which provide shelter for many azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias. There are over 120 varieties of roses; the sight and scent of so many roses is glorious. Around each corner are expansive views of the estuary and mountains beyond. One word describes this garden setting for formal functions and weddings: magical.
With your small intimate gathering, Bronte Country Estate will help to design your special day to make it unique. You can choose from many picturesque settings for your service; the gardens, the sweeping verandah, by the waters edge or even a golden beach down the Able Tasman National Park.
The perfect way to decide on your setting is by taking an on-site tour of the estate and having a chat to Daniel, which we are happy to arrange.
RECEPTION & DINNER
Bronte Country Estate has a romanic marquee for 12 guests for occasions or wedding receptions, which is sited on the peninsula headland to take full advantage of the stunning estuary views or in our homestead garden surrounded by flowers.
Our self-contained luxury villa, Te Koi, is perfect for smaller wedding parties: it is situated at the very end of the headland for total privacy. Bronte is privileged to be associated with Kristin Harrison, gourmet caterer, who can individually design a number of menu options.
