I cannot speak highly enough of Marlene, Eve and the team at Maleny Manor. This was the very first wedding venue my husband and I looked at when beginning our planning journey. The amazing (and infectiously happy) staff coupled with the stunning location meant it was also the very last! Their communication and 'softly softly' approach to ensuring preparations were running to a timeline made a hectic time in my life (being also heavily pregnant to becoming a new Mother) much less stressful. Staff on the day seemed to 'magically' anticipate when something was required before a mere thought had time to transpire. I can't them enough for the huge part they played in providing a wedding I always hoped but only dared dream.

Such a beautiful location. We planned to get married under the tree but the weather wasn't in our favour right on ceremony time but they had prepared a Plan B for us so we were not disappointed and it was still beautifully decorated as if it was always meant to be held there. Just a stunning venue all round.

This was such a difficult decision to choose which category to rate Maleny Manor as best, as I think they were the best in all 3 categories. Maleny Manor was absolutely amazing. The reception area was so incredibly beautiful and was set out perfectly to meet all our needs, including a spot for us to have a quick make up touch up and snack after photos which was greatly appreciated. We received so many compliments on how lovely and attentive all of the staff were. They did such an amazing job of making sure everyone was cared for and had a good time. I am so so happy we choose this venue, and will forever be thankful to the beautiful staff at Maleny Manor for making our wedding day filled with love, laughter and happiness.

From the first moment we met with the staff and saw the venue, there was no other place under consideration. It just had to be there! All of our guests felt so pampered and were in awe of the beauty of the place. You don't feel like a number, and as a bride planning a wedding from a distance I felt like the staff were willing to go above and beyond and they were also such a pleasure to deal with. I just can't stop raving about Maleny Manor enough, my expectations were high, but they far exceeded them.

Maleny Manor was extraordinary, for both Ceremony Venue and Reception Venue, they would be on a world class level, not just in Australia. Their venue was so beautiful and well maintained, it was intimate, private and picturesque. Their staff were impeccable, everyone was so friendly and helpful, polished and professional without being arrogant or stuck up, they were so lovely to deal with! They were absolutely perfect in every way. We cannot find one fault with them at all, the only bad thing was that it ended! I will recommend Maleny Manor to everyone, and I think they can compete for "best wedding venue" not just in Australia but in the world. They made our dreams come true and they gave us the best day of our lives. All our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

I believe the standout was that LAqua was as flexible as possible and really did whatever they could (within reason) to meet our needs. I can say that I would not have been able to say the same about other wedding reception suppliers as my initial perceptions were they were very rigid. LAqua also provided an excellent venue, food and the service of staff was outstanding. We would have preferred a few extra people serving drinks so that impacts on the value for money. Overall however we were very happy and our guests loved it...

I couldnt fault Kate's service and commitment to making our day perfect, it was as though it was her own wedding she was coordinating! Having her really took the stress out of the planning process.

The reception room is amazing! Its so clean and fresh and really allows you to add your own style to it. There are a great variety of options for centre pieces and chair sashs included in the price and the food was lovely. My favourite thing about the reception centre is it overlooks the beautiful ceremony area which is lit up by fairylights in the tress which is such a special backdrop for the evening. Theres also so many wonderful photo opportunities onsite for both day and night shots. The staff are also amazing and take care of everything so you can enjoy the evening knowing it will run very smoothly.

STOP YOUR SEARCH! Bram Leigh is without doubt the best wedding venue in Victoria. We had our wedding in November 2015. From the moment you first walk into Bram Leigh you know that you are somewhere so special. Not only is the venue at the highest standards the staff they have are always working to their highest standards to ensure your day is perfect. Steph who is the coordinator is above the rest. She always replies to emails, phone calls anything to make sure your mind is at rest. The whole process with Bram Leigh is seamless. They do it all! Even your own personal bridal person on the day. We had the lovely Morgan who was always there with some drinks and food during our photos to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our special day. I cannot recommend Bram Leigh any higher it is absolutely top quality. No need to go elsewhere, it is all at Bram Leigh

They were so accommodating to our requests and even those with dietary requirements were catered for so well and not left starving. Thank you for a memorable night and making our wedding so special :)

The service we have received from initial enquiry through to our wedding day itself has been exceptional in every way and you have really made it so much easier for me as I never once worried about the running of the day as I knew it would all be taken care of. You really do have the most amazing staff at Bram Leigh and nothing was ever any trouble, you have all been so accommodating and I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat. The service on the day itself was incredible and I never wanted for anything and as soon as I asked for anything like a glass of wine, it was in my hand within seconds....amazing! A big thank you to Sean and his team for looking after us all so well on the night and in particular to Sean who was great. The food was wonderful and I must say that the grounds looked immaculate as always too. I just wish we could get married at Bram Leigh all over again!

We were amazed by the level of professionalism and service delivered to us by the function coordinators Shaun and Steph, and the bridal host, Tess. Both my husband and I being from a hospitality/hotel background, we know what excellent customer service is and we agreed that the service delivered was above all expectations. The day went in a flash but the little things that we remembered will stay imprinted in our memory. We won't forget the time spent with Steph trying to figure out what colour to choose for the sash and our emails to her bombarding her with endless questions. We won't forget Karen's hospitality and her reassurances that we were on track with the preparations. We won't forget Shaun for all his efforts to fix my hair which was ruined by the rain. We won't forget the way they managed the delay and made sure that the night still ran smoothly. We were very happy and Our guests were wowed by everything that Bram Leigh had to offer.

We looked at so many venues and the reception room was very important to us. Bram Leigh reception room was just stunning. It fit perfectly into our colour scheme and would fit perfectly with any colour scheme. The most incredible and stunning thing about the reception room was the big glass window behind the bridal table with the views of the stunning gardens with all the magical fairy lights the view was just breath taking and makes out photos look so beautiful. The service by the Bram Leigh staff was highly professional and the food just melted in your mouth. On the wedding day and to this very day we are still getting compliments from our guests about Bram Leigh and how everything down to the very last detail was perfect. A wedding can be very costly with Bram Leigh it such an affordable price but the best thing is everything is included. I couldn't believe the price and what was included compared to other venues. I would highly recommend Bram Leigh and think every bride should get married at Bram Leigh. The entire package from glorious gardens, ceremony location, the outstanding staff and reception centre. I would truly love ...

Nicole has been the best events manager I've ever dealt with. From my initial enquiry, planning the finner details and surprises through the the wedding to shedding tears with me as I walked down the Isle. Without a doubt she is a true professional in her field and an absolutely amazing and caring person. I would recommend Nicole and the portsea hotel for any wedding bif or small.

The fine detail placed on the reception made it look incredible. It was so much more beautiful than we could've imagined! I was specific about my wants and colour schemes etc and they delivered!! I was in awe of how stunning they made it look!! The wait staff were amazing their friendliness and service was second to none! My partner and I were so busy talking, taking photos being pulled left to right, we actually hadn't eaten. The wait staff were so attentive with reminders and encouragement to eat! When they noticed we still weren't they made us a bowl of wedges so we could at least pick some here and there! Their care towards us was priceless:)

I had no idea :) she let me believe everything was perfect! Which was great!! She was very easy to deal with, and her friendly laid back nature allows you to relax and trust that all is being handled. She was truly amazing! The service didn't finish that night! She relived the moment with us the next day we laughed and received such genuine hugs/kisses/goodbyes from her and the staff!

The day was more thn perfect but the only thing i can note is that when having your ceremony outside, the venue should section off public slightly more as we had some small dogs run out in front of bridesmaides when walking down the aisle-it was soon taken care of, guests did think the dogs were part of the ceremony!

I had been servicing for a long time to find a venue that allowed us some flexibility but also had a classy feel and to give you a full understanding my family are from Port Douglas which is known for their weddings but she out did all of them from start to finish. She put my mind at ease and every phone call made either by myself or Shannon was calming and never rushed. She gave you ideas on how to save money and also areas that we may have forgotten. Nothing was too hard and her guidance was beyong our expectations. It was a 5 hour drive to the venue for us and we had absolutely no stress whilst organising because of Shannon.

Shannon Lott was a pleasure to work with. She listened to us and helped create the wedding we hoped and dreamed for. Her attitude and approach is relaxed - yet you know she is on top of everything, no fuss - yet you know she will look after the small details. Exactly what you are looking for in an advisor. The information pack Shannon provided helps you to plan a very personalised wedding - but with the guidance of someone who has done this a 1000 times. The perfect blend of DIY and advisor.

Port sea hotel was a amazing place to have our wedding, having the service & reception in one place was great for us & our guests, as well as having wedding photo in same location. Staff very helpful planing our big day, helping with list of supplier they recommend, & staff were lovely on the day. We got married in may the weather was a little cold, even though we didn't let this wreck our day, this location is probably more suited to summer weddings. We would highly recommend port sea hotel, wonderful wedding location

Beautiful location, amazing staff, affordable! I cannot fault the Sebel for all they have to offer and how helpful the staff are. Its not easy planning a wedding from another country but they made it seem effortless and were extremely supportive and helpful on all accounts.  It just helped that we were blessed with beautiful weather on our special day- even if it rained im sure it would have still been spectacular.  Special mention to Kai Richards on all she had done for us. I would highly recommend the Sebel to anyone with an upcoming wedding.

I can't speak highly enough of the staff at the Sebel. The resort, the environment, the grounds, the chapel and our reception room were all beautiful. The service was exceptional. 5 star service with a smile, all staff were extremely helpful, patient and obliging and most went out of their way to make us feel like the most important people there. There were several other weddings on over the weekend that we stayed and we were made to feel like the only people there. Our wedding co-ordinator made the process very easy and she was a joy to work with. It's a real credit to the management and training program of the Sebel. I would recommend this as the ONLY venue to consider in the wider Sydney region.

My husband and I fell in love with Zonzo instantly upon seeing it (and upon eating there!). The whole experience from start to finish was incredible. The food is some of the best we've eaten (and we are big foodies!), the service is great and the space is stunning with a lot of options for how to style it to your unique tastes. We ended up eating here about 4 times before the wedding as we loved it so much!

From the time we stepped into their restaurant to see whether we would like to have our wedding there to holding our wedding, we could not fault a single thing. All staff from the waiters to the wedding coordinators were always so professional, approachable, responsive and accommodating. All were so easy to work with, especially when planning a wedding. We received raving reviews and feedback from our guests about our wedding especially because of the food and of course the incredible surrounds of Zonzo, it really set the scene and atmosphere for an unforgettable wedding.
