There is uncertainty for an Auckland couple who had a wedding planned at a popular winery and events venue that was placed into receivership last week.

Donna Walker and James Davis paid a $7,000 deposit for their big day on July 20, at Ascension Wine Estate at Matakana in rural north Auckland.

Donna's sister and bridesmaid, Kerrie Marumaru, says when she spoke to receivers they were unable to tell her whether the wedding could still take place there, or if the deposit was lost and eight weeks out a new venue would have to be found.

"We're talking about two half-Maori families. There's so many people they have to cut out of it and my sister's just devastated."
