Wonderful experience. Owners Gerry and Ann were extremely helpful prior, during and after our wedding. The service was brilliant, food was delicious and everyone enjoyed the day/night relaxing. This venue would be great even to eat/drink on a Sunday afternoon.

12 Feb 2021

From the moment we met Gerry and Anne, we felt welcome and confident in the venue that we had chosen for our special day. Their explanation of the property, catering and event options was fantastic. As the day approached, the on going communication from Anne was fantastic, specifically given the Covid situation. The flexibility they showed to be able to confirm final numbers as close as possible to the day was very reassuring and put our minds at ease. On the day, Anne managed everything which helped the day run smoothly. The way that they accommodated our guests dietary requirements was first class, which meant we didn't need to stress over the catering details. All of our guests that attended spoke highly about how beautiful the property was, the ceremony reception and the quality of the catering. Could not have chosen a better venue to celebrate our special day.

Great location, with plenty of indoor and outdoor options for photos/guests to move round, simple but amazing tasting food - no one went hungry. Great for anyone not wanting to many decorations - the venue doesn't need it

25 Apr 2020

The venue was perfect for the country style of wedding we were after. Gerry and Ann were so easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble. Even when we had to completely change our wedding due to Covid they made it so easy for us to go ahead with just a simple ceremony.

21 Mar 2020

Fantastic venue, Ann and Gerry are wonderful people. Beautiful photo locations and ceremony locations. Very private and you don't have to travel ceremony, reception and photo all in the one place. Bride and Groom can get ready at the homestead if they wish. I 100% recommend The Tuggeranong Homestead for any function.

28 Feb 2020

Tuggeranong Homestead is a beautiful location, we had the whole property to use on the day which was great for photos and guests to wander around. Gerry and Ann were very friendly and helpful, we visited them many times before the big day and were treated like family. They set everything up ready for us to decorate on the day and were always happy to answer any questions and for us to drop in. There's lots of beautiful flowers, gardens and nice areas for photos. Everything was perfect and I would highly recommend using the Homestead for your special day. We miss having a reason to go visit!

Tuggeranong Homestead + Events  

Great, Thank you Emma it was a pleasure to host your day and we are glad your day was one you enjoyed. Hope you made lots of memories and your photos are simply divine. Congratulations to you both and thanks again for your praise.

19 Nov 2019

The homestead and gardens are just stunning, it felt to surreal all day to be celebrating at such a beautiful venue! Ann and Gerry were very helpful throughout the whole process of organising a wedding, they were able to provide advice on anything and they really care about making sure you have the best day. The food is absolutely delicious, all sourced from local businesses, even the fussiest eater in my family enjoyed it all. Even though we had a hotter day (32 degrees) our guests kept cool in the shade of the trees which overlook gardens on either side. All our guests (some international) said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to!

Tuggeranong Homestead + Events  

We are so glad to hear Tegan your guests enjoyed themselves, we hope you both made many memories of the day also. Thank you for your very thoughtful, lovely review. It was our pleasure to be part of your special day. Congratulations again to you both and we both wish you the very best for the future.

18 Oct 2019

We cannot thank Gerry & Ann enough for their incredible hospitality, stunning venue, friendly staff, laidback attitude and willingness to help us make our day everything we ever dreamed it to be. They went above and beyond for us, catering to our every need like it was no big deal. They went to so much effort to prepare, set up and help pack up. We really couldn’t have done it without them. We absolutely recommend this beautiful venue to all our friends, family and everyone in between. We had the most incredible wedding and we just can’t fault anything! This venue provides it all - a place to get ready, ceremony locations, canapé locations, so many stunning photo opportunities as well as a reception taking the hassle out of moving guests and bridal parties around. Tuggeranong Homestead was the perfect venue for us.
