Overview of this year at the Château. 

Happy New Year, how the time seems to be speeding up, with no way of slowing it down, it doesn’t feel like we are at the end of the year, only half way through, work has been enormous, extensive and strenuous, but this year we’ve achieved a lot, we’ve had to over come a great…

Château Progress Report.

We’ve been very busy since our last progress update, the holidays have only recently finished and all the big industries have only just reopened (they’ve been closed down throughout the school holiday break) so we’ve been playing catch up, double time and have been on a very tight schedule, so we are apologetic for the…

It’s Our Two Year Project Anniversary.

It’s surprising, how fast two years has come around, the Château and its surrounding grounds has changed significantly, over this tremendously short period of time. When we were handed the keys, on July 30th 2014, the place was a mess, considerably overgrown, it was left to slowly disappear and rot at first sight it reminded…

Progress Work on The Interior Of The Chateau.

Pleasure in the job put perfection in the work. -Aristotle  Our days have been busy here at the Chateau, so we apologize for the “Blog” post running a little later than normal!

The Beginning of the Interior work!

It is the things we “Work” hardest for that will reward us the most. We thought, everyone might like a behind the scenes, sneak peek, at all the boring stuff, we’ve been hard at work with, on the interior part of the Chateau. All the bedrooms with their en-suites (to start), a meeting room, two…

Some of the Before and After Pictures.

We all love, before, after and progress pictures, we’ve been going through some old pictures and thought, we’d share them with you… This area is the parkland, this was full of bamboo, weeds and brambles, they lived everywhere and grew out of control, all the baby trees were moved and are thriving in their new homes……

Work at the Chateau update….

We’ve been steaming ahead since the wedding, on both the inside and the outside of the Chateau. On the interior of the Chateau, we’ve been waiting for the next part of the approvals to come through, everything is approved in stages, every time we complete something, we must have someone come out for an inspection, and they make…

A Very Special Moment at The Wedding

  We wanted to share a very personal and special moment from the wedding, this is our 12 year old cousin Ella, surprising Naomi, Cameron and everyone during the speeches, with her stunningly talented voice, singing “A Thousand Years”, we hope you enjoy it as emotionally as we did. 

Once Upon An Enchanted Chateau!

This old and enchanting Chateau had it’s first, real, fairytale wedding, with all our friends and family who travelled from far and wide to celebrate this Groom and Bride. It was a day full of Joy, Pride, Love and Excitement, as we had the pleasure to be the first, after all the renovation, to try…

We are wishing everyone a very grand Happy New Year! Happy 2016, how fast did that come along? This year is going to be a big year for us, the first wedding at the Chateau is in T-minus 20 days, we are on track and sleep is more of a suggestion than a necessity. Even though it is…
