The Marion is such a beautiful venue and we were so happy with everything! We had both our ceremony and reception there. Jana was our coordinator and she was very helpful and lovely to deal with. The food was soo delicious and the staff on the night were friendly, accommodating and made our night run so smoothly. Would definitely recommend this venue for any event!

We celebrated our wedding at the Marion in September this year and the day couldn’t have been more perfect. All the staff were incredible to work with both prior to the wedding and on the big day, keeping us constantly informed and involved in the process. We had our ceremony on site and the photos of the surrounds are absolutely stunning. Everything about the experience was beyond what I ever dreamed of and I couldn’t recommend this venue more highly.

We had both our Ceremony and Reception at the Marion. The location was perfect, the team working there were amazing on the night and our Organiser was so lovely and helpful every step of the way! We planned our Wedding from 5hrs away from Canberra, the Marion were so helpful and accomodating, and nothing was too much trouble!

Simply the best! We chose the Marion for our ceremony and reception before construction was completed. Once finished we were taken on a tour and completely blow away by the decor, views and architecture . Jana who managed our wedding from on start to finish was fabulous, kept in touch well and was so helpful with arranging tweeking of the menu. On the day when I walked in before heading down the the ceremony I had a yessss moment as everything was just as I’d imagined. During the reception the Marion worked with our MC to make sure the day was amazing and helped make decisions so myself and the groom didn’t have to. Best location, best venue, 5 mins from city but you feel as if you’re somewhere exotic!
