The Gables were amazing! From our very first venue visit down to the very end of the day, their communication and organization was flawless!
Staff were amazing and the food fabulous. All of our guests commented not only on how beautiful the venue was, but how great the service was.
Our Gatsby themed wedding with the Gables was our perfect fairytale!
This Is the most beautiful venue, looking at it online does not do it justice. Do yourself a favour and visit in person. We had seen it online and were interested but still looking at other venues... that is, until we visited in person. The beauty and charm, the staff are fantastic, so kind and informative. We mostly dealt with Philippa who was absolutely fantastic, but also met Jessica (owner) and Joy who were also wonderful.
We have had so many comments on the venue, food and service. The food was sooo much better than we ever expected; quality you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We could not fault our experience with the gables. Value for money was exceptional and we want to do it all over again!!! Huge thanks to Phil and team who were so kind and helpful through the entire process! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable.
Lots of love, Leticia and Josh
