Bronwyn and her team helped to make our wedding day perfect. Every aspect was seamless from the suppliers they recommended, to the tasting evenings and then the day. She really is amazing! Every little thing was covered in detail. Would definitely recommend!

So happy
We had our wedding here on Saturday 22nd June 2019 and what a wonderful day it was. From our initial meeting with the lovely Bronwyn, we knew we were in safe hands. Everything was so organised and she was always there if we had a question. The venue itself was beautiful and everything was perfect for our special day. I would highly recommend this venue and Bronwyn is such a fantastic Events manager. Thank you!

We are so very pleased we choose the crows nest as our wedding venue. The service was brilliant with regular updates regarding our day. Nothing was too much trouble, Bronwyn and team let us make the room our own decorating and making it exactly how we wanted. The food, service and staff were brilliant
