Price included 3 course meal for 100, canapes, drinks, cake, venue, decorations, flowers, staff, logistics. Loved everything, we had comments from all our guests about how amazing it all was. Beautiful heritage building and pretty decorations. Delicious food, excellent service. Thankyou to Jarrah and team, I'd recommend to everyone

What a beautiful venue tucked away in the middle of the CBD. Nothing was to much for Jarrah and the hot dish team. They transformed the venue into the gorgeous romantic setting we wanted full of tea lights and flowers. The food was delicious with very generous portions. The outdoor courtyard is brilliant at night with the city backdrop. All in all it made for a magical venue!

Convenient place for a wedding, right in the middle of the CBD and easy access to public transport. Once inside the compound though it seems like we were transported back to another era with its beautiful gardens and heritage buildings.

We married at St Peters Church next door and were looking for a timeless, classic venue with warmth and personality. The mixture of red brick, ornate windows and warm wooden tones were the perfect setting! The courtyard provided a nice place for pre-drinks and outdoor fun.

Melbourne's best kept secret. A stunning venue and Jarrah and Michael are completely amazing. The food is to die for and Jarrah is a wedding coordinator extraordinaire. I would highly recommend this venue for someone looking for rustic old world charm in their venue!
