"On Waitangi Weekend Saturday 6th February 2016, our eldest daughter Jaimie & partner Simon were married at ‘Zatori  Retreat’  in Collingwood.

"Jaimie & Simon had visited Zatori for a social occasion in early 2015 & immediately decided this was to be the venue for their special day.  We hired Zatori Retreat from Friday 5 February through to Sunday 7 February 2016, including the main house & the backpackers accommodation.  For the year leading up to this date, we consulted regularly with Tracey (hostess & owner) & when the weekend finally arrived, Tracey had everything ready for us to take over the Zatori Retreat venue.  We also had caterers who had full use of the Zatori kitchen for the wedding breakfast preparations.

"We had a 25m x 10m marquee erected on the lawn to accommodate the wedding breakfast for 140 guests along with the bar facility that was set up in the outdoor area under a separate gazebo. There was more than enough space for guests to sit & relax in the lounge area, on the deck space or in & around the marquee & gardens, to enjoy the stunning views out over the Collingwood Estuary to the Bay beyond.

"We couldn’t have had a better place to celebrate, along with amazing weather, very happy people, great food, music – EVERYTHING!!! coming together at this fabulous venue.  Everyone raved about it & we have had so many calls & messages from family & friends telling us so!!!  Our thanks to Tracey for helping our weekend celebration to be such a success."
