Parnassus is such a beautiful place, I’m so glad we chose this venue. The food, staff and venue itself was absolutely amazing. The option of camping, onsite accomodation rooms and also the many inclusions for the reception venue was why we chose this place. Dannielle and her staff were all so helpful. We Highly recommend parnassus to all.

Thank you so much, it was our absolute pleasure to be apart of your special day.

October 2019

Out of all our suppliers we used, it was quite an easy process with them. We had back and forth communication, where they listened to what we wanted for the day. We had a tapas style of food, it was amazing! They also had this beautiful accommodation on-site which was so convenient to stay at!

They were really good with the service, and everything was very organised for us. They set up all the decorations and everything up for me before we arrived and were very helpful.

Our experience with Parnassus was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment we chose this venue for our wedding, the team's commitment to excellence and their willingness to go above and beyond truly set them apart. The venue's team worked closely with us to understand our vision, offering creative suggestions and practical solutions to bring it to life. Their expertise and hands-on assistance ensured that every detail, from the floral arrangements to the table settings, was executed seamlessly. Parnassus didn't just provide a space; they played an integral role in shaping the ambiance of our wedding day.

I was so lucky to find this venue online after seeing a few places that weren't quite right. When I saw the pictures I fell in love with the venue. As I was organising the wedding from overseas I didn't get to see the venue until 2 weeks beforehand and when I did, well I was blown away. It's such an amazing setting and this was then backed up by such amazing hosts in Danielle and Tracy and an additional bonus the menu was amazing and everyone raved about the food. It was affordable, friendly, stunning and was the perfect venue for our wedding. I couldn't have been happier.
