Review this supplier
10 Feb 2022

Sharyn (Thorn Clarke Wine Cellar Door Manager) was an absolute legend throughout our entire wedding process. Nothing was too hard despite us organising our wedding from interstate & it being on Easter. Her attention to detail was spot on & our night was SO amazing. Thorn Clarke’s speculator garden didn't need any decorations, but we bought in Milos from (Bulb Lighting) to enhance the beautiful garden & light up the wooden barrels & picnic tables. Sharyn & Milos arranged a video call & can NOT fault their work, creating an orange ambiance. Perrie Thomas Photography duo were amazing, blending easily into the wedding party creating some natural & jaw dropping, evening photos. Shakermaker Foods (Josh & Jenna) had to pick our menu for us as we couldn’t decide because EVERYTHING on the menu looked delicious. Guests commented all night on their variety of meals & the taste!

AMAZING!! Absolutely amazing to work along side with this venue for our wedding ceremony, honestly couldn’t have done it without them. We mainly worked along side Brooke and she’s a beautiful lady, she made sure we were happy with everything and made sure our nerves were under control about everything. If you’re looking for a beautiful laid back wedding venue then this is the place!
