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.

…thank you thank you thank you for putting together the most slick, classy, fun and perfect wedding for us. We just loved it...everyone did...and we genuinely couldn't have asked for more. What struck us, was that even though you have weddings one after another, it truly doesn't feel like it, you have the rare and valuable talent at making the wedding of the moment feel like they're the only ones ever!

The room looked ace, the food delicious and our friends & family loved it. We genuinely feel that our wedding would not have been what it was without your help, professionalism, kindness and expertise

Lots of love

Well Hello from Mr & Mr Pratten-Stone!!

OMG we are still absolutely buzzing from our incredible day & night!

Everyone was blown away with all our attention to detail and all the hard work of you and your team. We seriously were so, so happy with all your staff and how hard they worked!

The fireworks were tremendous and was the icing on the cake as nobody expected it. Also the Hot Chocolate was so yummy and everyone said it was totally the best they have ever tasted!

Everyone raved about the steak and how it melted in the mouth! there weren't any leftovers on anyones plates - and thats a huge sign!

Thank you again - we couldn't have imagined it being as magnificent as it was!

Much love and hugs

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

The wedding day was completely faultless.

We were put at ease from the second we both arrived on the day and all the way to the end of the day, not to mention beforehand during our planning meetings. I'm aware we emailed lots in the lead up to the wedding, and you always responded so positively and had all the answers. We have had so much positive feedback from family and friends e.g. my Nan commenting that its the best wedding she's ever been to!!

We now just wish we could do it all over again!

Essendon has been truley fantastic, we can’t thank you and the team enough!!

Lots Of Love
