Nikki and Keith Farrell
10th September 2016

First of all I cannot speak highly enough of everyone at Essendon, seriously, everything you done to make our wedding the best day of our lives cannot be underestimated. It was a whirlwind from start to finish and it is fair to say it will go down as one of the most memorable weddings any of our guest have been to.

Everyone (and I mean everyone) had a fantastic time, I am still getting compliments from my guests on the food (even though none of my Aunts or Uncles had a clue what Italian anti-pasta was!!!) , the drink, the atmosphere and how great the staff were on the day. Of course everyone thought the venue was beautiful (but you know that!) I honestly can't praise you, and the rest of your team highly enough. Thank you so so much for everything.

You and the rest of the team were all so helpful and accommodating. It felt as though you were all working with us rather than working for Essendon, which made us so comfortable and the whole thing so much easier for us! The whole day from start to finish was seamless and we loved every moment!

Ellie and Danny Fitzgerald

On behalf of both of us I would also like to say a massive thank you for making our day so special and perfect. The venue looked fantastic, better than we expected and the layout works so brilliantly for a wedding. Your personal service was excellent right from the very outset and you enabled the planning process, coordination and day to run smoothly taking a lot of stress away from us. We cannot thank you enough. We have no negatives at all! the venue, the food, the staff & service all were amazing and everyone commented on how lovely the food was. Judging by the amount of empty plates I think we can say the food choices were well received by our guests!

It was an absolutely magnificent day, couldn’t have been any better. We can’t praise you or even thank you enough for what you did, yourself and your team worked tirelessly to make it the day it was, you are all incredible, thank you. This was also the feedback from a lot of our guests who also loved it, but most importantly Liz and Antony said it was the best day of their lives.

With warmest regards

Sarah and Tom Denbigh
9th April 2016

I can honestly say that we had the most amazing time and that you and your team did a fantastic job! I don't think we could have picked a better venue. Everything ran so well and really naturally I thought. The timings you suggested were perfect and all our extra little requests and dietary requirements were catered for excellently. You really did help to make it so special for us.

I can honestly say that from start to finish we felt so looked after. You and your team ensured that everything ran so smoothly and we have had amazing comments from our guests about how much they loved the venue, how well it all ran and how amazing the food was (particularly the chips!). Although you hold 100s of weddings you made us feel really special and we can't thank you enough.
