Summer Spritz Wedding in Hawkes Bay

March 15, 2024

Alisha and Reid’s summer spritz wedding at Kotare Estate in Hawkes Bay was a vibrant and joyful celebration. The venue’s picturesque grounds provided a stunning backdrop for their special day.

The couple opted for a laid-back party atmosphere, with Aperol spritz, bubbles, and peachy tones setting the tone for the festivities. The alfresco dining space on the pétanque court was adorned with beautiful peachy florals, candles, and elegant glassware, creating a luxurious and timeless atmosphere.

Kotare Estate’s hilltop location offers a perfect setting for a ceremony or marquee reception, while the garden just down from the house provides a more intimate space for smaller weddings like Alisha and Reid’s.
