Jasmyn, Natasha, Haresh, and the wonderful events team at the NGA made the lead-up and day of our wedding in April 2019 perfect. The considered, comprehensive, and transparent consultation, communication, and planning support (including engaging with the other vendors) from early in the process, presentation of the already stunning venue, catering package, and attention to detail overall was amazing, with the high quality of service emphasised by many of our guests for good reason. The NGA made everything easy, looked after us, and can’t be recommended by us enough as an amazing wedding venue.

We had our dream picture-perfect wedding at the National Gallery of Australia thanks to the lovely staff of The Big Group. Our wedding coordinator, Jas, was especially helpful and attentive. The friendly staff truly supported us throughout the wedding planning process. We wouldn't have such a memorable day without The Big Group. The venue is also breathtaking with lots of different spots (both outdoor and indoor) to have the ceremony, reception, and taking pictures. Highly recommended!

Everything the Big Group did was great - the food was outstanding, the planning was thorough, their help with the venue decorations was life-saving, they were always friendly and responsive, and their advice was helpful. Kate, Bianca and co. were fantastic

It was a brilliant service and had a wedding coordinator who managed everything for us. The tables looked fantastic. The guest had a great time and we had an Indian fusion for our food. We got a good package which included a nights accommodation as well!
