The 10 Best Places to Propose in Auckland

Looking for a memorable location to propose!? We’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite proposal spots in Auckland that are sure to get you a yes, yes, hell yes!

Proposal turn wedding at Allely Estate

The team at Allely Estate and known for their quick turn-around weddings, so why not propose and then get married on the same day? If your family and friends can keep a secret that is. Tell your partner you are taking them out for a fancy lunch before whipping out the ring, and then whipping out all your loved ones who are there for the wedding of the century! A bit much? Then Allely Estate can provide you with a gorgeous spot to propose and you can get to wedding planning a bit later!

Row into engaged life at Boathouse Row

Looking for a private yet picturesque place to propose? Then boutique accommodation, Boathouse Row, located on a private lake in Coatesville is for you. Paddle out to the middle of the lake where you can get down on one knee and propose, don’t rock the boat too much, we don’t need you diving in for the ring! You can then spend the evening in newly engaged bliss toasting with a glass of champagne by the lake. Or head inside and relax in the venue’s Italian marble bath. If you want to add even more luxe to your stay you can add a couples massage or travel by helicopter.

Serene setting at the Glasshouse Morningside

An urban oasis in the heart of Auckland city, Glasshouse Morningside offers a calm and serene space for your proposal, that’s away from the hustle and bustle of the city! Set up a gorgeous spot in front of the venue’s wooden doors, set underneath the venue’s stunning glass roof. The feel of this space is truly special and will start your engaged life off in the best way

Propose by picnic with Indigo Waiheke

They know all the best spots on the island for the picture-perfect backdrop and they will provide the food, wine, music, and set-up of your proposal dreams! Choose from one of their picnic packages or you can customise your very own. Indigo Waiheke are mates with all the best wedding vendors on the island so they can easily add on experiences to suit your needs such as kayaking or scootering to your picnic spot. It’s time to get creative!

Kumeu Valley Estate

Kumeu Valley Estate is known for its rustic beauty and picturesque jetty setting which makes the perfect spot for a proposal. Line the jetty with candles and flowers, lead your partner to the end and… push them off! Jokes, that’s when you propose! Once they say yes, sit down and toast your engagement beside the tranquil river as you gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes.

Take your love sky high with a seaplane trip and wine tasting at Man O’ War Bay

Enjoy the spectacular scenery of North Island’s Hauraki Gulf by seaplane, as you fly over sprawling islands, blue lakes, the majestic sea, and secluded beaches with your loved one at your side. Propose in the plane or wait until you enjoy a scenic landing in Man O’ War Bay where you’ll be treated to a gourmet platter and wine tasting by the sea. This is a proposal you both won’t ever forget!

A magical moment at Markovina Estate

Markovina Vineyard Estate in Kumeu provides several magical settings for you to pick from. Propose side by side sitting on a swing, drop down on one knee surrounded by cherry blossoms, or wander through the wildflowers in The Hayfield. There are so many gorgeous spots for those newly-engaged photos of your dreams! The family-owned venue also has a selection of props on site to help bring your proposal to life.

Make memories at Mudbrick

Known as “one of the most romantic places on earth” Mudbrick Restaurant will take your breath away. The venue is easily one of Auckland’s most iconic vineyards, restaurants and wedding venues with a stunning outlook across the harbour to the city. The Mudbrick team will help you set up a romantic proposal, whether that’s with a glass of wine in hand as you walk through the vines, or over a romantic candlelight dinner. If you’d like to extend the trip, you can stay in one of the venue’s fairytale luxury cottages.

A hole-in-one at Rydges Formosa

With panoramic vistas that encompass Waiheke Island, Rangitoto Island, and the Coromandel Peninsula, this charming clifftop resort in Beachlands, Rydges Formosa, provides the perfect stage for your proposal. Spread across 170 hectares the gorgeous resort has many areas for you to set up the perfect intimate place to propose. You can then stay in one of their villas for the evening and even hit the greens for a round of golf, or a quick hit at the driving range. Maybe propose away from the golf course, we don’t need you shouting “fore” at your partner mid-proposal!

Movie moments at The Sugar Club

Located on the 53rd floor of the Sky Tower, The Sugar Club is one of Auckland’s most romantic settings, especially since the restaurant’s interiors are modelled after Italian film ‘I am Love’. Place the engagement ring in the glass of champagne or inside your dessert like that favourite actor in your favourite rom-com did. Or, if you want to avoid a choking incident, take them by the hand and propose in front of a room of excited onlookers. The movie moment of your dreams!
