After 5 years of working in Event Management in Auckland, I am thrilled to still be connected in the area and work as Rydges Auckland’s Exclusive Wedding Planner/Coordinator for the couples on their Rooftop Terrace.

Honestly, it is one of my favourite spots in Auckland and I just love working with their team!

The Venue SCREAMS location and is really one of a kind!

With accommodation onsite, a central location in Auckland CBD and absolutely GOB-SMACKING views of Auckland City and The Harbour Bridge - it is really a hard one to look past.

Here Nicolle looks after:

  • All Wedding enquiries

  • Wedding packages and pricing

  • Venue site visits

  • Planning Wedding Open Days which are biannual

  • Wedding coordination & planning support to all couples getting married at Rydges which means; runsheets, planning meetings, floorplans, final details and invoicing

  • Ensuring that all of the couples are in great hands and at ease with the Rydges team before the wedding day

Venue Managament can be a very profitable business. But if you are in the business, you will already know that it does take a lot of work. Weddings in particular take up a huge amount of time simply answering questions/emails and phone calls (at all times of the day and week) & then not to mention making sure that all of the details are followed through on the day.


  • Do you have a venue that has huge potential but you are just OVER all of the emails/questions/phone calls??!

  • Do you have a new venue that needs help getting off the ground?!

  • Do you have an awesome venue with a whole heap of potential but don’t know what your doing with it and how to move forward?

As the business grows - I am delighted to have just opened up a new Venue Management Opportunity and I would love to speak with you to find out if our businesses might be a good fit for eachother!!

Get in touch, I would love to arrange a coffee to discuss your business and how we can take it to the next level!
