I cannot speak higher if the museum as a venue for our wedding! Not only was Natalie a dream to work with but the staff on the night were so much fun and so incredible. You can tell they are so passionate about what they do and made our night so perfect and stress free. The whole process was made so simple and exciting working with Natalie and the team and they bent over backwards to get us things that were unusual. They were our biggest cheerleaders and it felt like planning a wedding with friends rather than random event staff. If you’re not getting married at the museum you’re doing it wrong!

Hi Sam, Thank you so much for the amazing review, we had an absolute ball planning your wedding with you and wish you both nothing but happiness!

We could not be happier with how everything went with the National Museum, from day 1 enquiring, until even weeks after our Wedding I cannot fault them one bit! We were taken care of so well in all stages, they were so accomodating to all requests we made. The catering was incredible! I am Celiac and the delicious food that I could have blew my mind, usually there is limited food for me but not on my Wedding Day which made me feel even more special! I highly recommend this venue! It now holds and even more special place in my heart, it has held some of my favourite exhibitions and now I had my Wedding there!

The food was amazing, which was a big factor for us. And the service from the waitstaff was first class. They were friendly and warm to all our guests and provided speedy service all night. Matthew has been so easy to work with and extremely accommodating to our many needs!

WOW. This is the some of the best food I've ever experienced from a caterer. From start to finish, we felt like everything was totally in control, and completely personalised. After the ceremony, I didn't have to worry about a thing; the service was amazing, on time, and perfectly done. The waiters were gorgeous, the canapes were a hit, and the buffet we chose was something the guests commented on long after the wedding. Thanks so much!

Broadbean catered for our wedding but really they did so much more than that! The team were fantastic from the first time we visited right through to picking up our stuff the day after our wedding. Matt was such a huge help in the lead up to the wedding, he was always willing to answer our questions and provide great ideas. The food was amazing, so many of our guests complimented the wine and food! The room looked so much better than I could ever have imagined and everything ran like clock work. Thank you so much for such a great event!

We had our wedding reception at the museum and it was so beautiful. Gabrielle and Anthony were so helpful in the lead up and on the day and we appreciated all the contact and quick responses. They made our day special.
