Just wow! Gabby at Serafino was absolutely amazing. She replied to every email quicker than I could refresh my inbox! Nothing was ever a problem for her, she was just so relaxed and cruisey even on the day! Not to mention the staff as well, they were so professional. I honestly couldn't recommend them enough! I had so many people compliment the venue and the staffing on the night, making sure everyones glasses were full and the food was incredible, everyone left with full tummies too! They catered so well for everyone there, literally the easiest wedding to plan because of these guys so thank you!

We had our ceremony, reception and accommodation at Serafino and it was amazing. Gabby & Michelle looked after us the whole way through. Both were so amazing. We had rain at our ceremony and within seconds they transformed the ceremony from an outdoors to indoors ceremony. I had no idea until i arrived either which was amazing because it reduced the stress of my arrival. Gabby literally ran down the driveway to meet our car to allow me to make the decision. She was so calm and explained the new plan to us all and it was perfect. Gabby set up the entire space with our materials and exactly how i asked. This saved so much time for us and stress. Michelle was available at all times also throughout the entire process and the reception night. Continually checking up on me if i was alright and happy with everything. These girls are amazing. All guests complimented on how good the food and wine was. The venue looked stunning. Very happy!

We had THE best day ever at Serafino wines for our wedding. From first contact with Gabby when inquiring about our event to meeting me before walking down the aisle - she was calm, professional, friendly, organized and approachable. No question was a silly one. Gabby has a fine eye for detail and was on top of everything all day and night. We highly commend the staff at Serafino for their professionalism too. We heard nothing but positive feedback from family and friends about the food, wine and atmosphere of both our outdoor ceremony and reception in the Courtyard room. We were so happy and impressed with everything and cannot fault the day - it was perfect!

The staff at Serafino were absolutely amazing! The functions manager Michelle was incredibly helpful and also very chilled out. She made my fiance and I so comfortable, and the whole thing ran so smoothly. We keep saying that the day couldn't have gone any better and so much of that was down to the staff and the amazing organisation that went into the wedding behind the scenes. The venue is of course stunning and the guests are still telling me how much they loved the food. We were really pleased with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend Serafino to anyone wanting an outdoor/winery wedding.

We loved having our wedding at Serafino’s. As we live Sydney, Michelle (the functions manager at Serafino's) was a great help in organising our wedding via email and was extremely flexible in meeting with us when we had a short amount of time in Adelaide. We had our ceremony by the lakeside and our reception in the courtyard, both of which were beautiful. The food was amazing. And when our cake started melting due to the warm day, Michelle noticed and quickly took care of it before we realised it. Overall, the grounds were beautiful, the food delicious and the people at Serafino's are great at ensuring that the day runs smoothly.

Serafino was the venue of our dreams. It fit our rustic theme perfectly and the food was absolutely delicious! Gabby was amazing to communicate with and she went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect in every way. I can not thank the entire Serafinos staff enough for making our day absolutely sensational

Gabby was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too difficult and made the process so simple. The venue is beautiful and having accommodation on site made it perfect especially due to majority of guests travelling from interstate.

They were brilliant! They set everything up, put it all down for me. Everything I wanted they were able to do for me. It was a whole sit down dinner and a drinks package for everyone, which was so reasonably priced with them.

Fantastic wedding venue, they were of a very high standard and food and wine was excellent with great service. A few coordination items were missed just as some tables set differently then discussed and no cake saved for the bride and groom to taste. Fire alarm also happened to do off during the ceremony but the coordinator was quick to try and rectify the situation! Coordinator, Security, bar and wait staff were all very lovely.

Serafino is an amazing venue. Gabby Harris was lovely to work with and did whatever she could to make sure our day turned out perfect. Would definitely recommend Serafino Winery for weddings

Serafino provided the perfect location and winter wedding package which made for a stress free wedding. All vendors were provided, a one stop shop for a gorgeous well thought out package with lots of inclusions. Highly recommend! Our guest list was 100 people (package inclusion is 50 guests)

Serafino provide onsite accommodation which made it easy for guests that traveled long distances or didn't want to drive home the night of the wedding. Guests were also able to enjoy breakfast the next morning at Serafino's restaurant. A one stop Shop! Bride and Groom had room included in package for wedding night.

My wife and I wanted an outdoor wedding in a winery with a scenery that would be unforgettable. Serafino provided the venue that was in our hearts and minds. From the picturesque vineyard over the rolling hills to the ducks and geese across the lake from Goose Island, everything was perfect. We opted for the Winter Wedding Package and never once felt that it was the wrong decision.

19 Apr 2019

We found Serafino to be a beautiful location, full of friendly staff. Michelle was wonderful and offered so much support and advice, answering all questions no matter how silly. The only issue we had with the venue is that while our guests were wishing us farewell the staff closed the doors without any warning, leaving bags and computers, etc. inside without any access. Other than this, we were extremely happy with how the venue setup and helped make our special day a reality.

Great venue for the ceremony, reception and accommodation.
