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!

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!

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

A beautiful venue both inside and out. The service from the Big Group was unparalleled. They had an exceptional variety of local food and wines that would be tough to find anywhere else in Canberra. Couldn't recommend a better place to get married, all in one location.
