Once again Te Mahia has excelled. We booked the luxury sea view apartments for our friends wedding. One apartment for us and one for the Bride and Groom. It was a very small get together as they wanted their wedding to be in a magical spiritual place...so a little trip into the bush and a perfect place was found over looking Queen Charlotte Sound. The bride had said not to bother with a bouquet ..but Jan had made the most beautiful little posy of native flowers and ferns..which the bride was delighted with..she also did the most lovely little button holes for the other 4 of us. On our return to the apartment she had decorated the door of the apartment as The Bridal Suite..
After lunch we left to go home leaving the bride and groom for another night...BUT they decided it was so magical they stayed on for an extra 2 after that. On their wedding night we had arranged for TE Mahias fine dining chef to come and create a three course meal for them. They had pre ordered and the bride said it was absolutely excellent ..the best Tarte Tartin ever. All in all Trevor and Jan (hosts of Te Mahia) just make everyone feel so special...even tho you are paying it seems you are their guests!! Nothing is too much trouble. We have now had 2 special celebrations at Te Mahia and hope we have a few more yet..it is definately our special place.
