The transformation of scrub covered land began 36 years ago when Dr Graeme Ford purchased 20 hectares 5 minutes off the motorway at Bombay with the idea to create an innovation centre and a wedding and event complex.

 Footbridge chapel and reception rooms were completed in 1995 and Ngaire Ford coordinated the first wedding held in April 1996. Since then Footbridge has functioned as a successful wedding venue delivering high quality service and an attention to detail. 

 Our development of the wedding and event complex is continuing and we now boast Footbridge Village.  The research and development facilities were started in 1994..Our resident chef Greg of Boulevard Catering has provided superb catering to all our weddings . 

Whatever the occasion you can be assured of best food and best service. Entering Footbridge Village you step back in time to the days of the General Store with petrol pump and water trough, Footbridge wharf with kauri boat , Lakeside jetty , to  1920’s shops “Petals and Butterflies” and “The Little shop next door” that will provide other services representative of a small New Zealand early 1900’s village .  

Footbridge Village offers an elegant, unique, secluded venue nestled in the Bombay Hills.  A One Stop Wedding Venue for ceremony, photos, reception & dance, with all weather facilities 35 minutes from Auckland.
