Higher Ground Melbourne is such a beautiful venue! So many compliments on the space! The food is also a 10/10! We just wish there was more to go around. So happy with the wedding planner, she was very responsive, nice and easy to work with and went above and beyond. Thank-you to everyone who worked and contributed to our day, would recommend!
