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!

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.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Bursaria the whole way through! Could not recommend this team enough - very efficient, adaptable and professional. They made our day magical and stress-free. Very accommodating to our preferences and requests and endless questions!

The team at Bursaria are incredible! They are responsive and very patient in answering a million and one questions I had concerning the venue and catering. The package/costs covered most of the standard requirements needed (i.e. venue, chairs/tables, food, drinks etc). Their catering packages were reasonably priced and the food was delicious. Feedback from our guests advised that the menu was spot on and one of the better wedding catering they've had. I limited my rating to 4/5 stars only because the Convent is a heritage listed venue so there were various restrictions in place which made certain arrangements a little inflexible. In saying so, they were very helpful with our wet weather plan and allowed a last minute change of the ceremony in the gardens to the chapel. All in a very positive and stress-free experience.

They were really good. Very professional and provided great service. There was plenty of food and everyone was really impressed with the quality of the food. They bumped in and bumped out quickly and efficiently too.

Communication could have been better towards the end, however everything went really well!

Thank you for your review Danica. It was such a lovely wedding to be a part of and we can still picture that gorgeous dessert station with all of those delicious donuts!

The service was good,however we felt that some tables didn't get enough food. The food quality was good however we had some issues with drinks even though we paid for an upgraded package. The location of the venue itself is stunning. We had a marquee outside which had fairy lights which was beautiful.

The Bursaria team made the day as easy and stress-free as possible, and really went above and beyond to ensure we stayed relaxed and could enjoy our once-in-a-lifetime day. The gardens are beautifully kept, and the provided chairs, umbrellas, and aisle runner ensured that guests and onlookers were greeted by a beautiful sight on arrival.
