Venue Testimonials

We had our wedding ceremony, afternoon tea and entertainment (the intermission in the Quadrangle) then reception all at the University of Sydney in the Great Hall. HostCo helped us with all furniture hire, the massive change over in the venue space, catered afternoon tea, provided a coffee cart and most of all helped us deliver the most delicious 3 course dinner. The entire team lead by Tran will always have such a special place in our hearts and in our memories from our wedding day. Tran was always incredibly fast to reply to all messages and emails and provided so much advice and support beyond the scope of our package. Special mention also goes to the forever smiley and enthusiastic Joe who had been there to assist since our first menu tasting right through to the end of our reception!

Thank you to the best wedding co-ordinator ever - Tran Howlett, she was amazing for everything up to and including the day, the whole process was so easy because of her and the whole day was beyond our expectations. Amazing support also from the entire HostCo team and thank you to Rafael on the night who took great care of the event. Finally the food was the buzz of the night, 5 star dishes from Canapes, Entree's Mains and Deserts + the additional hand made chocolates which all our guests loved. Overall the best day ever because of Tran and HostCo - Thank you for everything again.

HostCo were the venue and contractors who I engaged for my wedding at the University of Sydney this Saturday. I wanted to say the most enormous thank you to the venue manager Tran, floor manager Raf and their staff. Largely thanks to their input and careful preparations, Saturday was more perfect and delightful than we could ever have envisaged! Nothing was too hard for them every step of the way and they even let me change my mind a few times in the months leading up to the event. As far as I'm aware, every single guest had an amazing time. The food, in particular, made a big impression and most of our 100 guests commented on how good it was. It was the string trio and beautiful greenery and the arbour that Tran arranged via Anna Wang which really made it for me though!
