Perfection. Everything ran so smoothly. The Epicurean team liased with all our vendors, guided my bridal party and myself and hosted a perfect day for us. The food was incredible and came out so well timed! I am so grateful for the attention to small details - making sure we were fed in between photo taking; having fireplaces ablaze in the woolshed, timing when I needed to walk down the aisle, having umbrellas ready for the rain ahead. I did not need to think of a single thing- could just enjoy my day with my husband. Gorgeous venue. You don't need to go anywhere else for photos. Moved seamlessly from ceremony in the garden to pre dinner drinks in the miner's cottage to reception in the woolshed. Flawless.

Fantastic venue. Such an easy flow between seating, dance floor and outdoor area. We had our ceremony and reception at Emu Bottom Homestead. We had 80 in the Homestead for the reception on two long tables. Kate and Alex were great and the organizing process was very easy. The food was delicious and there was so much of it.

Emu Bottom was the perfect venue for our wedding. David, the manager was wonderful to deal with and he and the staff went above and beyond on the day to make it absolutely perfect. The food, wine and atmosphere were amazing. It was raining on our wedding day so we had the ceremony in the slab hut which was so beautiful and intimate. The reception in the Homestead was absolutely perfect as well. We wouldn't change a thing!

Emu Bottom Homestead is a stunning place for a wedding. The rustic old farm style is what we were after, and it delivered in spades. It rained really hard in the morning, so we needed to go to the back-up wet weather option, which was a cosy intimate hut with heaps of candles and it turned out that we actually liked it better than the garden we had initially wanted. The food was just fantastic - plentiful and delicious and everyone loved it. The staff were great and made everything easy, including removing tables ot create a bigger dance floor later in the night. Definitely recommend Emu Bottom!

Everything was spectacular! From the minute we decided to book, Alex and his team were with us all the way, answering questions and emails and generally reassuring us. Then on our wedding day, the food was AMAZING!! The grounds were so beautiful, the service was so warm and professional and everything went so so smoothly. Can’t recommend Emu Bottom Homestead enough!

Our venue was absolutely beautiful and came up gorgeous on the day. We did find the interactions during the planning to be a little difficult at times, particularly with the management team based on the Mornington Peninsula, and the venue in the outer of the Macedon Ranges, so there was less flexibility with inspections etc. On the night though, we couldn't fault the service, or the experience, and made persisting through all worth it!

David from the Epicurean team could not have made the day better. From initial inspection to the day itself, we could not fault the Emu Bottom / Epicurean team. If you're looking for a country themed wedding, close to Melbourne, Emu Bottom Homestead should be high on your list.

Venue and the staff are absolutely amazing. We had a buffet lunch reception in the woolshed, the food was incredible and it really doesn't take much to decorate the space (it looks amazing with hardly anything) if you're looking for a relaxed yet beautiful atmosphere, check out Emu Bottom Homestead!

Both my husband and I and our guests loved every minute at the homestead. It is so inviting and in beautiful surrounds. Staff on the day were very attentive and helpful. Was exactly the wedding venue we wanted. Gorgeous but comfortable and relaxed.

Stunning venue but poor management and communication. Venue offered to provide a vegan menu for our wedding but unfortunately we were not given any choices and menu was boring and lacked effort. Also a guest with a nut allergy became ill on the night from not being catered for appropriately.

This was the first and only venue we visited. Upon arrival we could smell the slow cooked meat sizzling away on the woodshed fire & we were sold! The ambience and sheer beauty of this rustic old venue certainly also made it a winner. Our photos and video are picture perfect thanks to this stunning venue.

If you are looking for a rustic wedding venue, look no further!!! We got married in the wool shed and absolutely loved it! The atmosphere was amazing, the food was absolutely beautiful and the staff were very nice. We had our ceremony in the garden which was also beautiful, it was nice to break up between the garden and wool shed on a nice sunny day.

We had a really good experience. The venue was absolutely beautiful. Deanne helped to organise everything. It ran really well on the day and we were able to use all the grounds as there were no other functions on the day. We used the Woolshed.

Emu Bottom Homestead was an excellent choice for us as it is very rustic! It is beautiful inside and out! Our ceremony was outside in the garden which was perfect! Our reception was inside the woodshed which is very romantic and rustic! The food was delicious and the drinks were great! The only reason I give it 4 stars was because on the day before and day of the coordinator was a little rude to my husband and I. However, we did have an amazing time and we believe all our guests did too!

This gorgeous venue in Sunbury, north of Tullamarine, actually has two main places available for a wedding cum reception, the Homestead or Woolshed. Ceremonies are usually outside in charming garden areas but we had our ceremony inside the Slab Hut, as we had a choir sing for us and needed the enclosed space for the sound to be properly balanced. This area looked beautiful, with its dark wood, candles and tulle bows, and the smell of wood smoke was lovely. The ceremony there was just wonderful, all that we had hoped for. Our reception for just over 50 people was in the Woolshed, which is the most lovely intimate location, full of rustic charm. With its low ceiling beams festooned with fairy lights, the Wookshed looked like magic when accompanied by the candles on each table, white linen tablecloths and flowers everywhere. So many people said they had never been to a more beautiful wedding than ours. The food was also terrific.

A very nice country venue. We had ceremony and reception in the homestead. All our guests loved the venue and setup. They catered very well for the children who were guests at the wedding. On the night they went out of their way to go to the shops and by some raspberry soft drink so the bridesmaids could have some vodka and raspberry drinks. Great service and setup. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for an outdoor wedding.

Absolutley amazing venue. All the guests loved it just as much as we did. We used the Woolshed and had the buffet for the meal, it was delicious and there was enough to be able to offer seconds. The staff are very helpful and do whatever they can to help

BEAUTIFUL! Could not have been happier. The atmosphere and lighting was romantic, the food was AMAZING (we had fireside carvery) and the staff were supportive and focused. The wedding would not have been the same if it wasn't at Emu Bottom. We LOVED it!!
