Old coach stables is such a beautiful venue and Melinda and Scott were just great! We had such a fun and wonderful wedding at old coach stables earlier this month. Melinda was such a star in helping us get organised, and on the day she just had everything running smoothly, even moved everything for the ceremony indoors herself at the last minute due to the rain. The set up was gorgeous, and food was excellent.

The venue was great. Ceremony and reception were all in one and it suited us down to a tee. Menu and service was perfect. Gardens and premises were very well kept. We organised our wedding from almost 2000km away and they were very helpful with this. Great country venue with abit of history!

They were fantastic. From the initial viewing to menu and design of the table. We had our ceremony and reception at the same venue. Everything was set up beautifully and they packed it all down for us.

This venue was affordable and perfectly country. The gardens are immaculate, the dining room has character and the managers Mel and Scott are very easy to work with. The food tasted great and the alcohol service fantastic.

This was a great venue which also provided food and drinks for the wedding, reducing the number of suppliers having to manage. With everything on site, the day was seamless which took away a lot of the stress. They helped create the relaxed atmosphere we wanted and accommodated our requests, like having our dog there for the day.
