Choosing The Gables as our wedding venue was the best wedding decision we made! From our first meeting until the day itself, The Gables were efficient, professional, supportive and reliable. They helped us in putting together the perfect day. Ourselves and our guests also made many comments throughout the day about how wonderful the venue and gardens were, the food was delicious and the staff efficient. Thanks to The Gables for making our day perfect.
Our Wedding day was made PERFECT by all at The Gables in Malvern. They have professional wedding planners, excellent service, a beautiful mansion and stunning garden for our ceremony. The food was absolutely delicious. We loved it all!
We highly recommend The Gables as the perfect place for your wedding!
The Gables were amazing! From our very first venue visit down to the very end of the day, their communication and organization was flawless!
Staff were amazing and the food fabulous. All of our guests commented not only on how beautiful the venue was, but how great the service was.
Our Gatsby themed wedding with the Gables was our perfect fairytale!
This Is the most beautiful venue, looking at it online does not do it justice. Do yourself a favour and visit in person. We had seen it online and were interested but still looking at other venues... that is, until we visited in person. The beauty and charm, the staff are fantastic, so kind and informative. We mostly dealt with Philippa who was absolutely fantastic, but also met Jessica (owner) and Joy who were also wonderful.
We have had so many comments on the venue, food and service. The food was sooo much better than we ever expected; quality you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We could not fault our experience with the gables. Value for money was exceptional and we want to do it all over again!!! Huge thanks to Phil and team who were so kind and helpful through the entire process! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable.
Lots of love, Leticia and Josh
They were very organised and very friendly. We had all the catering include, the food was excellent and the service was also pretty good! They did the decor as well, which was great and definitely took some stress off!
The Gables Malvern is a great wedding venue. Aside from the reception we also had our ceremony in the garden on site. The venue itself was beautiful and felt we didn't need to decorate it as much.
Sue was our wedding coordinator and was fantastic. Right from meeting her we felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands.
There was a variety of food options but also catered to allergies/intolerance's and the food we chose was delicious .
Sue was helpful in coordinating with the suppliers and their requirements (ie. wedding band set-up, videographer/photographer equipment storage).
Excellent location, professional staff and good food. The Gables's crew helped coordinated the day and it was a great relief for us. Overall service was fantastic, from our first meeting to the wedding day. We had a great day, Thank you very much.
We were delighted with the presentation of The Gables, it was the perfect setting to celebrate. There were a few minor issues in planning and on the day, but a good time was had by all guests. Note: The Venue is too small for bridal table of more than 10.
I would highly recommend The Gables as it has all the beautiful natural elements of the garden, traditional elegance with a modern touch to the cuisine. Compliments Sue, to the chef & all those who worked on the food preparation. Any special dietary requirements were incorporated smoothly for the guest.
We had a fantastic day. We ended up with an inside ceremony and reception (it rained) and it was perfect - the windows are stunning, the details on the walls. It also contained the 30 kids who came to the wedding - who had a great time flitting between a couple of rooms.
The food was good, Sue who looked after us on the day had everything running smoothly.
