We had a garden wedding at the Woodlands of Marburg. The staff were great, couldn't fault them.

24 Oct 2014

I would highly recommend anyone wanting a private country estate wedding to head out to Marburg, only 45 mins from Brisbane CBD. They were so accommodating to every request I made. We had our ceremony and reception at Woodlands as well as accommodation.

We held our reception and ceremony here and both were perfect. The staff were FANTASTIC and dropped everything to do whatever you asked of them. Earl and Gabby in particular were awesome. The food was delicious and couldn't have asked for better service. I can't express how impressed I was.

Simply marvellous. An absolutely stunning venue, great staff, endless possibilities and accommodation on site. Wedding co-ordinator, AJ Flavel, is a living legend!
