Absolutely fantastic and they catered for all our needs for our wedding! They went above and beyond for us! Bec was incredible to deal with. Our guests had such a great time and we received such amazing feedback from everyone.

Thank-you for your review Bree! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Joel and we can't wait to see you both back in at True South shortly!

The venue was so flexible and accommodating to all of our needs which sets them a part from so many other venues. The food and wine were extremely high quality. Packages were flexible and negotiable. Service on the day was outstanding and staff went above and beyond to make our day run smoothly. Would highly recommend True South as an affordable yet beautiful venue for a wedding.

True South  

Thanks so much for the review! We absolutely love hosting weddings and know that being flexible can take a lot of the stress away from the bride and groom. Hopefully you can pop in soon for lunch or dinner!

We absolutely loved our wedding at True Sourh, it was an amazing venue to host our special day. We had our ceremony on the balcony and reception in the bay view room. The team at True South are professional, well organised and super helpful. Everyone was talking after the wedding about how great the food and drinks were. Highly recommend!

Thanks so much Suzannah! We loved hosting you and Sacha on your Wedding Day!

I found the staff to be really friendly, and the food as well was awesome. At the start, since we organised it so far in advance, there was a changeover in staff around 3 times which I found a bit concerning. The lady Bianca who took care of us in the end was absolutely fantastic. Once we started getting into the coordination of everything, Bianca just did a fantastic job. We're really happy with how the day went, from a venue perspective it was all really great!

True South  

Thanks so much for your review Renee! We are so glad you and Eddie both enjoyed your special day with us!

True South

What a stunning venue! Bianca was a dream to deal with, we had so much good feedback from guests about the food, which was delicious and plentiful, and the function room is modern and perfect to add your own touches to. They were accommodating of our desire to do a dessert bar and bring our own cakes, and the staff were amazing. Only disappointment was that the kids chicken & chips was too spicy for the kids to eat, but TS were brilliant in responding quickly and bringing out alternative food for the kiddies. Wish the night hadn't ended! Thanks so much. Jen & Lara

Great venue for our cocktail wedding, we had a number of tables and a band for 110 guests and is worked perfectly. The large balcony meant our guests could enjoy the beautiful evening. The staff were fantastic, ensuring everyone was looked after

True South  

Thanks so much Lee! We hope you had the most amazing day and are settling into married life :)

Wow! The team at True South are absolutely incredible. Bianca was absolutely amazing and was able to answer all of our questions. The whole team went over and above and we cannot thank them enough. True South is a beautiful modern venue with great food and drinks. We were going for a more relaxed wedding and we were able to use the space as we liked (complete with a very popular Mario Kart corner). Thank you again!

True South  

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review Jenna! We are so glad you were able to create the Wedding you imagined and that Joel was able to surprise you with his song (I think we all had tears in our eyes)!

Words cannot express how happy and satisfied we are with Bianca & team; all process was smooth and no fuss; we are very grateful for everything; the day was perfect we all had such fantastic time and we heard all good things from our guests regarding the food too 😊

Thanks so much for the review Natasha! So glad you and your guests had such a great day... and the weather was perfect!

28 Dec 2017

True south was the prefect venue and I have nothing but amazing things to say about them.. everything was perfect. The food was incredible and everyone commented how much they loved it which was really important to us as we didn’t want anyone left feeling hungry. Assistance I received from the wedding planner Bianca was far above my expectations, she went above and beyond for us from the first day we met her. The decor the venue has is a perfect canvas and u don’t need to over do the flowers as the venue is already quite pretty. It rained on our wedding day and the ceremony had to be moved inside which I was nervous about but it still worked out perfectly. I can not rate true south high enough. All my guest loved it and said they loved how intimate it was and the energy on the night was great. The staff where all lovely. Bec or function’s manager on the night was also incredible.

True South is the perfect place for a modern wedding. The outdoor deck can be used for your ceremony, and the dining space is a clean slate that allows you to bring your dream wedding to life. Bianca and her team were so accommodating and received rave reviews from our guests and my husband (who has been in hospitality for 20 years himself - so great praise. And the food was amazing!

True South  

Thanks so much for the review Celia!! We loved hosting yourself and Daniel for your Wedding and we are so glad it was such a memorable day!
