Venue Testimonials

We just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work over the weekend. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating throughout the whole planning process and we are very grateful for that. We had such an amazing night and so many commented on how great the venue looked and how delicious the food was. Once again, thanks for everything! We'll definitely be back soon for a date.

Sean and I originally booked our date with Fergusson Winery in May 2020 for a November wedding date. From the day we booked the staff at Fergusson's were amazing. I had monthly phone calls to check and see how we were doing with our planning and to see how we were going with COVID and Fergusson were great about it, so understanding and helped us find a new date. We booked for February, leading up to the wedding we met with the team to finalise everything and they were just wonderful, helped in any way they could and made us feel really relaxed about everything. Unfortunately our new wedding day was during the most recent 5 day Victorian lockdown, when we got the news on the Friday we were absolutely devastated, I received a phone call from the team at Fergusson about an hour after the announcement that we were going into lockdown and they had the idea that we could get married on that day which we agreed. They went ABOVE AND BEYOND to get everything sorted, contacted suppliers, spoke to family and friends and got everything set up to perfection within a couple of hours. The entire evening was absolutely perfect and everything we could have dreamed of! Fergusson Winery made our wedding dream come true and I cannot recommend them enough! We have been back since the wedding to see everyone who works at Fergusson's and thank them again and we will be coming back on a regular basis.

The team at Fergusson were so wonderful to work with and we could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. We had been to Fergusson a number of times for breakfast and wine tastings and always loved coming here prior to planning our wedding, so it felt right to choose Fergusson as our wedding venue. As someone with anxiety, I was very nervous about planning my wedding and expected it to be very really stressful (especially during a pandemic!), but the team was so accommodating, flexible, calm and organised, they really made the whole process so simple. Teearn was an absolutely wonderful wedding coordinator, and Teearn, Lou and the team really went above and beyond to make our wedding so special and memorable. The food was wonderful, we even booked breakfast at Fergusson's the next day as most of our guests were staying in the Yarra Valley. I cannot recommend Fergusson Winery enough, and I can't wait to see Teearn and the team next time we visit for dinner or a wine tasting.
