Venue Testimonials

They were amazing! Our coordinator was excellent and kept checking in on us on the day and helped me out with my dress. The food was amazing and was catered to us perfectly and tasted amazing. They were always there for us and nothing went wrong because of them.

The perfect venue. Married in the botanical gardens with the Opera house and harbour bridge behind us followed by the most fabulous reception at The Pavilion just a moment's walk away. Wonderful staff who accommodated us all with warmth and fun.

Douglas B

The team went above and beyond to ensure our guests had the most terrific wedding reception. The food was delicious and the service was second to none. From our initial enquiry through to the end of the wedding day, the staff were professional, very responsive and lovely to work with. Thanks for making our special day so memorable.
