We would highly recommend Poet's Lane, not only for the obvious reason it's such a gorgeous venue with stunning gardens, but the staff, the package deal, the attention to detail with planning and guidance throughout the entire process, and finally the onsite accommodation. The right venue makes a world of difference to the overall experience on our big day to us, our families and friends. Our wedding day turned out cold and wet, the team at Poet's successfully moved our outdoor garden wedding into the equally beautiful indoor chapel with short notice. It was the perfect choice as our day, photos and video turned out spectacularly.
Thanks for your kind wordsAudrey, it was so lovely being part of your special day!
Poet's Lane was my dream wedding venue since I was a little girl. Thanks to the dedication, kindness, talent and love of Tessa and the team our wedding truly emulated our friendship, marriage and future. I couldn't imagine a more perfect venue. Thank you for making my dreams a reality!!
Thanks Hannah, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and sharing your special day with you
- beautiful venue and great wedding coordinators, however:
-Watch out for the sound system & music set up-had issues with it the whole time.
-the ‘DJ’ on the night doubled as a wait staff - was not always in the DJ booth. Had issues when tried to get music louder
-Entree and mains were fabulous
-dessert buffet was average
-don’t expect even half an hour to be added to the time you can spend at the venue without paying an extra $600 per half hour...but what you end up paying for as the base package feels rushed (we even added on an extra hour-still rushed!)
-do go above and beyond to help out if they can
-we only had 60 guests but paid for 80, because of their 80 guest minimum contract. Not their problem, but also realise this fully before you book and sign a contract.
The location was splendid and very picturesque. The staff was very happy to accommodate all of our requests and made it easy for international guests to book accommodation. The food was great and the wedding went on without a problem. The package we got also include DJ and MJ, and wedding coordinator.
The venue was breathtakingly beautiful, and the food was delicious and plentiful. Unlike other weddings I've been to, they certainly don't leave you hungry! Our coordinator, Fiona, was the real hero of the day! She was so professional and made the day run smoothly, even when we had some last minute changes. Then, the next morning, all our belongings that we left lying around the reception had been neatly packed for us! They are so organised!
They were one of the best venues we've tried , and they did really well with coordinating everything for us. They arranged some decorations there for us, as well as food and drinks. We had a succulent theme, and our wedding coordinator at the venue who was also our florist included them into all the floral extras. Having the florist as our wedding coordinator was just so handy and made everything so much easier!
Absolutely stunning venue...especially in autumn! Staff are friendly, easy to talk to and are willing to help in any way they can. Our Coordinator Rachel was amazing and made the whole day run smoothly. The food was outstanding! Everything they served was delicious and surpassed expectations and the desert buffet is to die for! Highly recommend Poets Lane if you want a wedding people will be talking about for years to come!
We were very happy with Poets Lane. Fiona and the team were kind and friendly, they took care of us beautifully and nothing was too much trouble.
Our day was like a fairytale. We would highly recommend Poets Lane and we hope to return as guests some day.
Thank you so much Philip, it was an absolute pleasure working with you!
Amazing venue with great staff who made the whole process so easy and relaxed. The venue itself was beautiful for a winter wedding with so many guests commenting on how lovely the venue looked. The food was great and service was fantastic. Our wedding coordinator Gracie was very experienced, friendly and on the day helped it all to run without any issues.
Hi Kirrily, Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure to be apart of your wedding day and we are so happy you enjoyed your experience with us. We wish Peter and yourself the best of luck with the next chapter in your lives. Kind Regards Wedding Coordinator Gracie P.S I hope you had a wonderful time on your European travels!
I hardly know where to start. The location was beautiful, right before the autumn leaves fell, the colours were absolutely stunning! The staff I couldn't find fault with, they went above and beyond and were extremely attentive throughout the day, there was no detail not attended to. The food!! Amazing!! We have had so so many compliments on the food, and the night in general. Onsite accommodation also is extremely handy for you and your guests, even better it is complimentary for the bride and groom and you have the option of reserving the entire motel exclusively for your wedding guests. Poet's Lane seriously took away so much stress and truly made my fairytale wedding dream come true!
Hi Kate, Wow!! Thank you so much for your review! It was an absolute pleasure to be apart of your big day and we are so happy that you had such a wonderful experience with us all at Poets Lane. We are so glad that you fairy-tale really did come true! Kind Regards Wedding Coordinator Gracie
They were helpful and organised, they were really good, gave us a lot of time when bringing our family in still deciding on the venue. Able to come in the day before the wedding with all of our things. They were accommodating, let us get ready there the morning of the wedding and provided us with champagne. The food was delicious, they even brought left over meat out of platters for guest to have seconds.
Poet's Lane was an unbelievable venue for our Wedding day. As a bride, preparations were easy with them organising everything. Our guests raved about the venue facilities, the food (especially the dessert buffet), the staff themselves, and the convenience of the accommodation. We had a wonderful wedding at Poet's Lane.
Poet's Lane is a stunning wedding venue in the Dandenong Ranges with a beautiful back drop of tall trees and luscious gardens. The team at Poet's Lane are extremely helpful and friendly and there's isn't a request they won't help or include. The team created a perfect timeline for our ceremony and having only one ceremony per day meant they put all attention into our wedding. The food at Poet's Lane is delicious and the dessert buffet is the perfect way to end a night of dancing and celebrating. We cannot recommend Poet's Lane highly enough!
