Venue Testimonials

The venue is absolutely stunning surrounded by lush greenery and colourful flower gardens while having the Werribee Mansion as the backdrop. I would highly recommend The Refectory by Bursaria to any future couples who are after a stunning garden ceremony venue with indoor reception that caters for a smaller guest capacity, as it was perfect for our 85-guest wedding. The team are very flexible, understanding, and professional throughout the entire process.

Werribee Park is such a beautiful location but Bursaria makes it outstanding. The food and service were amazing and we felt like royalty the entire day. Guests cannot stop talking about the food — saying it was the best they had ever had at a wedding. The venue is so beautiful. The enclaves in the room were perfect for our photo booth, bomboniere table and gift table and the space looked full without looking cramped and also perfectly laid out for everyone to move easily and comfortably around.

Eryn M

Bursaria really delivered a great wedding package; the food and service were terrific and the venue was gorgeous, with our flowers. Our event manager was a pleasure to deal with and it was easy to organise. We had a beautiful day and it was so convenient for our guests with the ceremony site and reception all in one place. The Mansion Hotel being a few steps away was a huge bonus, as well. Highly recommended.
