“You did a truly amazing job. The venue was beautiful. You did so many little things for us. You were always warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. You carried yourself with dignity and respected my bride’s wishes while still having the deft ability to direct her and I when things needed to be a certain way.

Can’t imagin anything better than what Silvestris offered. Gorgeous venue and fantastic food, the whole atmosphere was very classy and romantic just like how we dreamed of our wedding day. John (the owner and the manager) also basically saved our day after our wedding planner ditched us halfway through the day. Can’t thank them enough for creating a magical day for us.

Highly recommend this awesome venue!! Very quick responses for every question. All the staff were so lovely and helpful throughout the whole process. The venue it's self is just more than we could have ever dreamt for. It was the first venue we visited, and did not have one regret. The garden was just devine, out professional photos look amazing with the beautiful background behind us. The 'Ballroom' was phenomenal!! Sitting at the bridal table I was just in admiration of how perfect everything was!!

Everything was pretty good but the service was a little slow for drinks

16 Nov 2019

It was really good, it was a very idealic venue whilst still being very practical. It was really suitable for the size of guests we had. It had a really nice and classic feel, and it was a perfect balance between classic and modern which was what we were looking for. The cost for the venue hire itself was also very comfortable. They were particularly good for event food, and the staff were very friendly. John the owner was particularly accommodating every time we asked him about anything.

When looking for a wedding venue, we wanted one place for the ceremony, reception, and photos - and Silvestri’s won our hearts. The gardens are stunning and the reception area is so open and beautiful, and we also chose to use the terrace for pre dinner canapés. We had all of our photos taken on the grounds of Silvestri’s because there are so many backdrops for the photos!

Amazing work from John, helped Anna and I out with anything we needed. All our guests loved the venue and we feel we got a good deal on price. Will recommend to any of our friends that are looking for a wedding venue or function.

It was really lovely. The reception venue and the service was great. Parts were a little expensive which was a little confusing however overall great venue.

They were very lovely and very accommodating. We made some changes last minute and they were happy to do. Nothing was too much for them. We organised for our ceremony to be held at their location.

John and the team are amazing. We organised our wedding overseas and they were incredibly helpful. Garden was stunning, food and drink were lovely, everything was decorated through them, we didn't spend a lot and it was all very tasteful and elegant. Our guests didn't want to leave.

John at Silvestris was very helpful and friendly to my husband and I. He helped us create the perfect wedding reception and have us his opinion on what would work best.

They were very, very professional. John, the owner, on the day was out there in the gardens picking up leaf by leaf before everyone got there. It looked absolutely amazing. The word amazing doesn't even do it justice. John met me at my car and walked me over to my father. We had a three course catered lunch after our ceremony. The food was just lovely. Absolutely beautiful. The flavours were explosive.
