Ben and I just wanted to express our thanks and appreciation to you all for allowing us to celebrate the most important day of our lives at your beautiful venue. Trent’s to us holds a special, unmeasurable value due to the fact you have allowed the history of the building and it’s surroundings to remain. This type of character is something that lacks in most other Christchurch venues.

We really appreciated your relaxed, highly professional manner and the way you listened to our needs for the day – carrying them out flawlessly. Weddings can be very stressful and hold great expectation, so we were incredibly impressed with how well it went.

Lastly for us, food at a wedding is one of the most important things and on the night your buffet style BBQ menu did not disappoint. Plates were piled high and feedback we received was quoted as “the best food at a wedding we have ever tasted”.

Overall we had the best day, and wouldn’t change a thing so thank you!!

Kind Regards,

Chloe and Ben Cameron



Hi Sue and John

Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job of our wedding on the 14 September 2013! You went above and beyond to make our day really special.

The venue was absolutely gorgeous, from the ceremony in the garden, the grounds, amazing daffodil field and the reception, we had many comments from guests saying what a beautiful setting for a wedding.

The huge storm and winds that destroyed your pine plantation and took out the power less than a week before our big day did not stop you putting on a fantastic day for us, generators, chiller trucks etc were sorted, and everything went as planned, nothing was a problem that couldn’t be solved, amazing service!

Our wedding was Amanda’s first with Trent’s, she did an amazing job, we could not recommend her enough.

Sue and John, you were a delight to work with. Very easy going, friendly, down to earth, genuinely lovely people. Again, we could not recommend you enough.

We had numerous comments from guests about how fantastic the food was, many people said it was the best they had ever had at a wedding, it was plentiful, delicious and served hot!

We would definitely recommend Trent’s to anyone we know who is getting married.

Best of luck for the future.

Mel and Rod Brown

Dear Sue and John

I just wanted to say a very belated thankyou for our fantastic wedding day in October. You did an amazing job with the food, service, drinks (everything!) Everyone at the wedding had a brilliant day. I have received many compliments on the food and overall atmosphere. You made it so easy to organise the wedding from England too, which helped alot!

I hope 2010 is starting out very well for you both and the wedding season isn’t too manic!

Best Wishes

Hi Amanda

Hi Sue and John

We would like to thank you both for providing such a beautiful venue and for your efforts in making the day so special for Melissa and James.

We were so thrilled with how the day and evening went and have had so many positive comments from our friends and family about your service and the venue.

The food was fantastic and was enjoyed by absolutely everyone. Hopefully we will be back to enjoy it again at one of our friend’s weddings.

We would like to wish you well for the future.

Kind regards
