Absolutely amazing wedding venue! We came from Melbourne 3 days prior to our Wedding day and the tailrace had everything organised for us in advance. The reception room was set up and looked absolutely beautiful, the ceremony was outdoors in their beautiful lush gardens and the event planners were so helpful. They literally organised everything from start to finish. We didn’t have to think about a thing apart from turning up and having the best day ever. Ceremony, reception, celebrant, food, alcohol, staff, decorations ABSOLUTELY everything is done for you via the venue with so much flexibility. Our day was nothing short of perfect and felt absolutely magical!!! I just want to relive this day over and over. The Tailrace are incredible at making this journey stress free and perfect!

Thank you - It was a joy and privilege :)

Highly recommend. All workers, especially Lauren and Sharon put their best forward by providing attention to all the little and big details, always happy to assist with any enquiries and making everything so perfect for our special day. The venue was a whole that included the ceremony/celebrant, reception and decorations.

Hi Claire. Thank you so much, we so loved being a part of your marriage journey!

Tailrace was OUTSTANDING! We had our ceremony and reception at the venue which were beautifully decorated. Initially we had planned our ceremony outside, which would have been just amazing, but unfortunately the weather was poor and the chapel was our second option. We chose to have small platters of canapes/nibbles, a bar with a bar tab and our cake and the sweet options. Sharon was our celebrant who was just wonderful! We had Tam, Lauren and Sophie to help us organize our wedding at the Tailrace which was such a breeze! Our day was just so mesmerizing and beautiful!

We so loved being able to bring to life your dream.

An all round winner for anyone who is looking to have a simple relaxed wedding that you can easily customise yourself. When my now Husband and I entered the Tailrace, to be honest I wasn't overly hopeful. I is a fairly big venue with a good reputation and i was relatively sure it wouldn't fit within our budget. But then we met the amazing Lauren. She soon helped us realise that we could go as extravagant or as simple as we liked. They can provide everything or parts of the wedding as required. Both my Husband and I desired a simple wedding and having no real idea on how we wanted it, Lauren was fantastic in providing all options with associated costs and when we hanged our mind with something she was amazing in making it happen. The Tailrace helped us have the best day ever. Forever Grateful.
