Had always wanted to get married in the Hunter Valley and was so glad we did. As most people made a weekend of it the whole atmosphere was so relaxed, and having a brunch the next day meant we got to see more of our guests. The Chateau Elan was beautiful, and meant we didn't have to leave the venue all weekend if we didn't want to. Get in early to book accommodation (for yourselves and guests) as it is very popular with weddings and concerts, but early planning will fewer issues closer to the date.
Yeng is an absolute professional. Not afraid to tell you what will work and what won't. Local to the Hunter Valley, but came down to Sydney to meet with me. The bouqets and arrangements were beautiful.
Vanessa at Sugar Rush was such a pleasure to work with. She not only did our wedding cake, but also a dessert bar. Very dedicated to making sure everything was prefect and all the elements visually worked. Cake tasted great, as did the dessert however there probably wasn't quite enough provided.
Absolutely amazing. Have had more comments about the band than anything else at the wedding. Their energy is great, and the dancefloor was packed all night.
Venue was stunning, with a beautiful sandstone chapel on-site. The room itself is a bit plain but can be improved with lots of decorations. Everyting is on-site (accomodation, makeup, hair ets) so perfect if you wish to make a whole weekend out of it. We had golf and day-spa the day before the wedding, and a brunch the day after. The best part is Phoebe the wedding co-ordinator. Nothing was too hard and she was a pleasure to work with. Made the whole process much easier
Jess was the perfect choice of photographer for us. She and her assistant were so lovely to deal with, which is important when they are sharing such a personal day with you. They were inconspicious and very professional. We have some amazing photos, most of which are very natural. The level of service we have received has been great. The proof book alone looks like it could be the finished product from the front. We also had her do our thank you cards and have received comments from just about everyone who got one!
