I cannot fault the service of St Andrews Conservatory; from the first viewing to the end of night. Kiara and Susan are the absolute best at what they do. I received many, many compliments from the guest about the service, the ability to choose from the menu and no random drop, the quality of the food and the atmosphere. Kiara allowed me to drop all the items I wanted at the reception the day before, and her and her staff set it up EXACTLY how I envisioned. There is no surprise costs, and considering the amount of work they do it really is one of the most decent priced venues in Melbourne. I loved my reception at St Andrews Conservatory! Thank you so much for everything.

We cannot thank the team at St Andrews Conservatory enough for making out dream wedding happen. Everyone was incredibly helpful in the lead up to the day and we have had so many comments about the excellent service on the day itself. The food was exceptional not just for the bridal party but every guest was impressed. The best part was it all felt very genuine and relaxed. Events coordinator Kiara was super helpful with every thing from making sure the music and atmosphere was running smoothly to helping me ( The Bride) change shoes later on in the night. Once again we are so so thankful to St Andrews and would highly reccomend this stunning venue for any event especially a wedding !!

I don't even know where to start with St Andrews Conservatory. We had the time of our lives at our wedding on March and I could not thank the team at St Andrews enough. From the first e-mail to packing up after the reception, everything was just perfect. Stunning venue, amazing food, lovely staff. Everything ran smoothly and now, two months later, everyone is still talking about how amazing our wedding was. We were so stressed when we had to cancel with our first venue due to COVID issues and now I am CONVINCED I would have never booked with someone else if I had come across St Andrews when I first looked for venues to host our wedding. Shout out to Susan, Jasmin, Chiara (specially my girl Chiara who always had a drink ready for me) and the team for making our day so special.

The perfect reception venue! We and all our guests loved the uniqueness of St Andrews, and Jasmin was amazing. She went above and beyond to ensure the night was exactly what we wanted. We had a cocktail reception and everyone had plenty to eat and loved the food. Thank you so much to Jasmin and everyone else at St Andrews!

St Andrews have been the most organised, helpful and stunning part of our wedding preparations. The day went off with no dramas at all, and the staff handled all kinds of minor and major logistical coordination on the day.

30 Apr 2022

St Andrews are a brilliant wedding and function venue with glass ceilings (bright and brilliant vibe) along with excellent food and hospitality service. Our guests were very impressed with the food and beverage offerings and everyone had a blast celebrating our wedding! Our venue coordinators Susan, Kiara and Jasmin were very helpful and pleasant to work with. Well done!

St Andrews Conservatory was amazing for our wedding. The staff were very helpful and attentive, the venue looked beautiful and the food was delicious. Everything went smoothly and we had a great time.

23 Apr 2022

Our wedding reception at St Andrews Conservatory was absolutely incredible. The venue is clean and fresh and looks stunning when decorated. The food and the service was of high standard and we have received a lot of great feedback from our guests. Our host, Kiara, was so helpful on the night, nothing was too much trouble. Paul and I, along with our guests, had the most enjoyable night.

23 Mar 2022

Honestly, there is nothing more I can say then they were amazing. Every step of the way they were there for us, and the day ran so smoothly. I could not reccomnded them more.

18 Mar 2022

We had so many compliments from our guests. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. If there was ever a problem on the night, we didn’t know about it, they took care of EVERYTHING and it made the night go smoothly and run well! These guys are absolutely incredible to book with and make your wedding day super special and enjoyable! Kiara, Jasmin and Susan are literally the DREAM team. They do weddings all the time but made me feel like I was their first Bride and made my husband and I feel so special. Liam, one of our bar tenders was the talk of the night, no one was waiting for drinks, he would remember guests orders and was on the ball the whole entire night. AMAZING.

17 Mar 2022

Elegant venue that catered for every need we had. The food was beautiful, atmosphere perfect, classy decor that matched our added choices for the ceremony and reception. We had both our ceremony and reception here and nothing was too much trouble for the team at St. Andrew’s Conservatory.

26 Feb 2022

Holding our reception at St Andrews Conservatory was one of the best decisions. The venue is spectular on its own, the staff were amazing and took care of all our needs and requests - the process was so stressfree. Amazing feedback on the food, and the guests loved being able to choose what they got to eat. If I could do it all again, this would be a no brainer.

8 Jan 2022

AMAZING!! The food is incredible and the portions are big, the drinks package is so large people won’t miss the spirits. The look of the conservatory is so beautiful there is no need for any decorations. And lastly, the staff are so amazing to deal with that you will actually find it fun planning your wedding. And take that from a covid bride who had to postpone 5 times.

26 Nov 2021

We had the absolute best wedding day at St Andrews. The whole process leading up to the wedding was so easy, no question was too hard or too many. Special mention to Susan, Kiara and Jasmin who on the day made us feel so special and had everything under control. We have had so many complements from our guests about how amazing the food and the service was and with so many options. If we could get married again we would not hesitate in having our day here again :)
