If any venue perfectly lives up to its name, it must be this one. Every December and January the slopes of Lavender Hill are alive with the purple flower which give it its name.
And of course Simply Wed’s weddings are scheduled for precisely that time of year.
Lavender Hill has long been a location where wedding parties have stayed in the large four bedroom accommodation, or taken advantage of the multiple photo locations – lavender fields, olive trees, alpacas and a unique avenue of mature oaks.
Guests can also enjoy quality farm produce that includes a range of boutique gins, Limoncello and gorgeous olive oil.
Use of a stretch-tent marquee gives this venue a 60 person capacity. It’s particularly suitable for daytime weddings where guests can sit amongst the shade of the trees and wander the grounds.

Labour Of Love
Trish Delamore, Lavender Hill Owner
Trish and Jason Delamore took over Lavender Hill in Dec 2015 and have subsequently invested heavily in both effort and capital to create a world class wedding location, quality accommodation and working farm…all just 30 minutes from downtown Auckland.
What originally attracted them to the property was the combination of commercial lavender farm, mature olive groves, lemon orchard, modern stand alone B&B, spectacular views across to the city and a unique sprawling 1970s main house complete with curved walls, portholes and massive recycled timbers.
