Bursaria were so thoughtful and organised. They did an amazing job supporting us through the planning process, were accomodating of all our wishes, answered every beck and call we had, and supported us on the day more than we could imagine. They were lovely to work so closely with and their venue is absolutely spectacular. The selection of food and wine is delicious and some of the best i've ever tried! Highly recommended!

Thank you Alexandra, it was such an honour to be a part of your wedding day and celebrations. We are all still talking about your dress days after.. just divine. Congratulations to you both and thank you again for sharing your day with Bursaria.

We had the most beautiful wedding, and this was all in part to the Abbotsford Convent and the Busaria team who helped us throughout the whole wedding planning process. All of our guests commented on how beautiful of a venue it was- a little oasis in Melbourne!

They were really good! The day before it rained quite heavily and they took care of the area we wanted really well and made sure it would be perfect for our wedding. They were so professional and really knew what they were doing.
