We were very fortunate to exchange vowes in Melana and Simon Bradleys garden in December. An incredible garden with many options available for our ceremony and photos. Idyllacy set with beautiful surrounding farmland and beautiful established trees, we had awesome day!.
Melana and Simon worked incredibly hard, were caring and incredibly helpful in every way possible. Thank you!!!

Thank you Melana & Simon for letting us use your beautiful gardens for the Wedding. Your input and suggestions were invaluable with planning the Day. Our guests were amazed with the absolutely beautiful venue, most from Taumarunui had no idea such a beautiful place existed in our backyard. Everything was perfect.Thank you so much.

The first time I viewed the garden I was amazed and overwhelmed with the astonishing views, well-designed detail to the landscape and the never-ending paths throughout a beautiful oasis. I knew from that moment on that this had to be our venue. I was faced with the dilemma of changing the date so that I could have this perfect garden, leaving me with only three weeks to organize everything. From the initial meeting I had with Melana, she was very professional, creative and flexible with ideas and how the day would be organized.
Melana constantly communicated every detail leading up to the wedding, taking the initiative and exceeding our expectations demonstrating to me that she made our wedding day her priority. Not only did we have a beautiful venue but to ease the stress of the day we had a stunning self-contained room to stay in the night before. The different layers of the garden meant we could have photos without leaving our guests waiting and using the natural landscape meant the photos would look astounding. The wedding was magical, with all our guests feeling so relaxed and in awe at the beauty of the garden.
Melana provided a professional service and was an extraordinary host; I highly recommend her garden for any event. Everything about our day was divine, knowing that the venue set the tone for a breathtaking and memorable day with our friends and family. We are grateful for a day, we will never forget. Thank you Melana & Simon.

The first time I walked through the garden I knew right there and then, this is the place for our wedding, everything for a beautiful garden wedding was here, From the exquisite venue and carefully groomed grounds, our ceremony space up by the arborvitae trees, the beautiful ponds, amazing photography sites throughout the whole property, everything was perfect.
Malayna & Simon were just fabulous and provided us with the absolute perfect spot to enjoy one of the most important days of our lives! A huge, heartfelt thank you to you both. Bradley’s Garden truly is a breath taking venue and would highly recommend it to any one for their wedding or function.

My husband and I got married at Bradleys Gardens on the 16th February 2013. We stayed at the Bed and Breakfast for the night before the wedding as well as the wedding night. I as well as my wedding party were blown away with the property and what Bradleys Garden had done and set up for us.
The room was breath taking, with fresh cut flowers from the gardens. The location was perfect for our stay and wedding. We were able to pop into town when we needed anything but once out at the gardens you felt well away from everything tucked up on a farm with stunning gardens and views. The service was 110% with friendly help and advice.
Myself and my guest felt very looked after. The gardens are just amazing, with so much colour and design. The room was stunning with the best linen and all the amenities one would need. The breakfast was so yum, with lovely presentation, and was mouth watering, Delicious.
I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone and everyone, well worth the stay, very relaxing, and I am proud to say that we had the best wedding out at Bradleys Gardens Taumarunui.
