Wouldn't Have Wanted Our Big Day Anywhere Else!
We would like to thank all of you for EVERYTHING! You all did an absolutely amazing job at making our special day perfect! Thank you to Tara for all the planning & organizing the year and months before the big day, & for making the day run so smoothly! Thank you to Barry & all the evening team as I think we can say for all the guests that everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we did (including the best man who was passed out in the disabled toilet)! We couldn't have done it without you all & wouldn't have wanted our big day anywhere else!!

Every Minute Detail Was Attended To
We came from Australia to get married, as I moved there 9 years ago to be with my Australian partner so wanted to be surrounded by my family I left behind. All of the staff went above and beyond to ensure every minute detail was attended to. Dana, our wedding planner, went out of her way to make sure the day was exactly what we wanted, even answering our messages and questions outside of business hours, which was an amazing personal touch! She was by our side throughout the day to gently guide us so we knew what was happening at all times and I will never forget how wonderfully she treated us during the planning of, and on our wedding day. Ourselves and our guests were treated very well and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, I will always recommend this venue to other people.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It is hard to pin point a wedding, we offer such a wide variety of options to each of our couples. I guess, personally our first wedding we did in the treehouse was a momentous one, as it opened new options to us. But saying that the best wedding is each and every one we see right through from start to finish.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember, no matter who says this is how you should and shouldn't do something, and who says this is right or wrong, it is your wedding day, and so you should remember to do what you want.
