Sally & Murray,
We would like to thank you both for helping to make our wedding day a great
success. The Function Centre was ideal for our outdoor ceremony under the
trees and indoors for dinner and dancing. Our guests had a wonderful time
and still talk about it. We have no hesitation in recommending Barkers
Function Centre to anyone wanting to hold a relaxed and successful event.
Ally & Barry Norris
The Barkers Function Centre offered a fantastic setting for our
wedding. The surrounding grounds are well established and there is a
wonderful flow between the buildings and the grounds. The shade of
the large oak trees and view of Mt Te Aroha creates a great
atmosphere and was one we enjoyed while having pre-dinner drinks.
With its close proximity to the Waihou Historic Church, the Barkers
Function Centre is in a great location and easy to find for out-of-town
guests. Murray and Sally Barker were extremely helpful and friendly
which made the planning and setting up of the venue very easy and
fuss-free. Many of our guests commented on the venue and we have no
hesitation is recommending the Barkers Function Centre to others.
Helen & Josh Wright
Dear Sally & Murray
We are writing to recommend your facility to anyone who is planning to get married. We were delighted with the park like setting, modern reception room and the helpful and friendly service at the Barker Function Centre. We had the most magnificent day and have received lots of positive feedback from guests that had come from near and far to spend our special day with us. Guests also commented on the magical feeling of the reception, from the voile draping from the ceiling and walls to fairy lights that lit up as the sun went down.
By being able to choose our own caterers and florist we could have our wedding reception to our taste and budget. We added a personalised touch with our own table decorations and wedding favours that complemented our individual style and the existing surroundings.
We had our dream wedding and would recommend to any bride or groom to be, who have always dreamed of a fairytale wedding in magical surroundings and a stress free environment to have their wedding at the Barkers Function Centre.
Anna-Lee & Andrew Bell
This venue was the perfect setting for our April wedding. The interior
drapes created a magical feel and the expansive and pristine grounds
under the old oak trees made for the most beautiful wedding photos.
The venues accommodation was wonderful for our overseas guests, giving
them both privacy and a chance to be there for all the pre wedding
The grounds came alive at night with the lights illuminating the large
trees. All this made for a special perfect day, we wouldn’t change a thing.
Megan & Will French
