Absolutely loved this venue, not only are they a not-for-profit they also provided flowers! Saving us lots of money. The food was fantastic, catered for all allergies and intolerances. The grounds were magnificent with old style buildings looking like a beautiful medieval castle.

Our wedding day could not have been anymore perfect thanks to Ngoc and the team at Montsalvat. From how accomodating they were in postponing due to COVID, to the endless adjustments and additions they allowed us to make on our day - they could not have been anymore perfect. The food, WOW. We elected for a seasonal harvest banquet, to the table, and the food was just next level. Our guest went home rolling out. Our wedding day was stress free and enjoyable thanks to the team. If you’re thinking of whether Montsalvat is right for you, trust us it is!

Montsalvat is a gorgeous venue, perfect for a romantic ceremony. The staff are friendly and helpful, and were able to accomodate us changing details as COVID restrictions changed.
