""We had our wedding at Eagle Ridge on the 22nd of April. We had the most magic day which went perfectly thanks to the planning and hard work of all staff involved. Briana helped us plan and organise exactly what we wanted, for months leading up to the day. We were grateful for this as the running of the day went perfectly. The owners were so supportive and really couldn't do enough to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. One of the owners even drove the bridal party in his own car for photos. The venue is stunning too, we had our ceremony in the garden looking out towards the Mount, followed by our reception which was up the path in the function center where we were greeted by staff who were very professional and attentive. The food was beautiful and after months of planning with Briana, we were so pleased with our choice of the alternate drop plated options of eye fillet and chicken. We are still receiving compliments about the quality of the food, our guests couldn't understand how the chef was able to prepare 40ish eye fillet steaks so perfectly and all ready to come out of the kitchen at the same time. The venue is stunning with views looking out towards the Mount and Matakana Is. We were lucky to have a perfect Tauranga day without a cloud in the sky. We hunted all over Tauranga and Auckland for somewhere special to have our wedding, we both sincerely think we couldn't have picked a better venue for attention to detail, beautiful buildings, professional staff and stunning food and wine. I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting something special for their big day.""

"We cannot thank Eagle Ridge enough for making our wedding day perfect. Briana is incredible, she went above and beyond for us leading up to the wedding ensuring everything was sorted making the process not stressful at all. Briana and Nigel continued to go above and beyond on the wedding day even holding our archway throughout the ceremony due to the wind! The day was everything we wanted and more. Beautiful venue, stunning views, and incredible accommodation. A big thanks to Nigel, Deborah, Briana and the team at Eagle Ridge."

""We recently celebrated a special birthday at your beautiful venue. We were delighted with the hospitality which included greetings on arrival and a warm welcome followed by champagne and little platters served by the log fire. The food was excellent and the service was finely tuned to meet our expectations. Atmosphere and surroundings stunning. A most enjoyable evening shared by a close family unit""

"An absolutely stunning venue, the views are magical. I want to say a big thank you to the new owners who went above and beyond to make our day more perfect than we could have ever dreamed of. Every request and enquiry was handled with care and you were always able to find a solution efficiently and effectively. Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially when you are planning it from another country, but you were so professional and helpful you made it a breeze."

"We just got married on May 6th, and we were very pleased with our choice. The venue had just changed owners and managers, (we were the first wedding) however we did not notice anything that impacted us, to the contrary the new managers were very accommodating when we had to mount our wedding cake late the night before. It is a superb location, and everything ran smoothly. Thank you every one!"

"We spent a wonderful night here with a delicious, perfectly prepared 3-course dinner and interesting and friendly conversation. The surroundings are lovely and the view way down to Tauranga and the port were spectacular. We felt very spoiled and pampered - a highly recommended venue, with a standard of luxury way above the norm."

Lilli

"Eagle Ridge is an absolutely stunning venue, the views are just magical to say the least. We hired the lodge (ceremony) and the function room (reception.) It was fantastic knowing that our guests were being wined and dined as well as being entertained with the facilities offered at the lodge while we (bridal party) were off getting photo's on another part of the estate."

"Eagle Ridge was everything we dreamed for our special day, and more. The convenience of an all-inclusive venue was the best decision as our guests could relax and enjoy the whole day without in transport issues – we didn’t have to deal with the outside world at all! It was our special, intimate day. Thanks to the team at Eagle Ridge, the service was exactly as we hoped it would be, which made for an unforgettable day."
