The Gables were excellent with us. The organisation was fantastic and they were exceptional with communication. The venue was great and the perfect setting for our wedding day.

Choosing The Gables as our wedding venue was the best wedding decision we made! From our first meeting until the day itself, The Gables were efficient, professional, supportive and reliable. They helped us in putting together the perfect day. Ourselves and our guests also made many comments throughout the day about how wonderful the venue and gardens were, the food was delicious and the staff efficient. Thanks to The Gables for making our day perfect.

Our Wedding day was made PERFECT by all at The Gables in Malvern. They have professional wedding planners, excellent service, a beautiful mansion and stunning garden for our ceremony. The food was absolutely delicious. We loved it all! We highly recommend The Gables as the perfect place for your wedding!

The Gables were fantastic. Phil was brilliantly organised, and made sure the day ran like clockwork. The venue itself is beautiful, especially for a garden ceremony. The food is delicious.

The Gables were amazing! From our very first venue visit down to the very end of the day, their communication and organization was flawless! Staff were amazing and the food fabulous. All of our guests commented not only on how beautiful the venue was, but how great the service was. Our Gatsby themed wedding with the Gables was our perfect fairytale!

This Is the most beautiful venue, looking at it online does not do it justice. Do yourself a favour and visit in person. We had seen it online and were interested but still looking at other venues... that is, until we visited in person. The beauty and charm, the staff are fantastic, so kind and informative. We mostly dealt with Philippa who was absolutely fantastic, but also met Jessica (owner) and Joy who were also wonderful. We have had so many comments on the venue, food and service. The food was sooo much better than we ever expected; quality you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We could not fault our experience with the gables. Value for money was exceptional and we want to do it all over again!!! Huge thanks to Phil and team who were so kind and helpful through the entire process! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable. Lots of love, Leticia and Josh

They were very organised and very friendly. We had all the catering include, the food was excellent and the service was also pretty good! They did the decor as well, which was great and definitely took some stress off!

The Gables Malvern is a great wedding venue. Aside from the reception we also had our ceremony in the garden on site. The venue itself was beautiful and felt we didn't need to decorate it as much. Sue was our wedding coordinator and was fantastic. Right from meeting her we felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands. There was a variety of food options but also catered to allergies/intolerance's and the food we chose was delicious . Sue was helpful in coordinating with the suppliers and their requirements (ie. wedding band set-up, videographer/photographer equipment storage).

We were delighted with the presentation of The Gables, it was the perfect setting to celebrate. There were a few minor issues in planning and on the day, but a good time was had by all guests. Note: The Venue is too small for bridal table of more than 10.

I would highly recommend The Gables as it has all the beautiful natural elements of the garden, traditional elegance with a modern touch to the cuisine. Compliments Sue, to the chef & all those who worked on the food preparation. Any special dietary requirements were incorporated smoothly for the guest.

We had a fantastic day. We ended up with an inside ceremony and reception (it rained) and it was perfect - the windows are stunning, the details on the walls. It also contained the 30 kids who came to the wedding - who had a great time flitting between a couple of rooms. The food was good, Sue who looked after us on the day had everything running smoothly.

We only looked at two venues and The Gables was the one for us. The venue has real character and charm and the garden set up was stunning. The pricing was great and a mid September, Saturday wedding we were still considered to be in the low season. All the costs were included and there were no hidden fees. We had a great time here and would highly recommend.

The Gables is such a gorgeous venue, you will fall in love with it's charm immediately! The staff are all very professional and accommodating and helped our day to run very smoothly. It is simply a stunning venue for both indoor and outdoor photography and you will not need to add much in the way of decoration, as the place is already so pretty, with complimentary flower arrangements etc. We had a lunch wedding and our guests all commented on how nice the food was. The pricing for this option was very reasonable, considering the package inclusions. If you are looking for a venue with top notch service, food and opulent beauty, do not look past The Gables!

Thanks Alyssa, it was a pleasure managing your wedding day!

I couldn't have imagined a more amazing place to hold our winter wedding. The venue was super cosy and Brianna and Claire were so accommodating in moving our ceremony outside at the last minute so we could have our dream garden wedding. The food was amazing too!

The Gables  

Thanks for the lovely review Claire, The Gables really is just as beautiful in winter as summer. Happy to hear the weather gods allowed for your dream garden ceremony!

Beautiful and seamless. This venue was perfect. The event manager took care of everything and made us feel like everything was always under control and never our problem. They were very accommodating when necessary. The Garden looked amazing, so our ceremony was so beautiful.

Great Venue that catered for our ceremony in the garden and then catered to our guests whilst the pictures were being taken. The food was amazing and the venue created a great atmosphere to enjoy our day. Having everything take place at the one venue was so convenient.

The The Gables looked beautiful on the wedding day. Staff were very helpful yet they weren't a strong presence during the day. Dietary requirements were very well handled. Both fructose intolerant guests said their menu was fantastic and (for once) they didn't have food envy.

A beautiful heritage property in the tree-lined streets of Malvern East, our guests were astounded by it's beauty. A gorgeous garden and ceremony gazebo, the whole day went off without a hitch and the staff were on-board every minute. Amazing quality meals and noone went home hungry. A must see.

A beautiful venue I cannot recommend highly enough - the staff, especially the event managers, are fabulous. Great food and wine. We didn't need to look any further for our perfect wedding photos either - The Gables has lovely gardens.

Everyone at The Gables were fantastic. We had our ceremony and reception there. Eise was our wedding coordinator on the day and she did such a wonderful job making everything run so smoothly. The beautiful garden and gazebo were perfect for our ceremony and the ballroom provided an intimate area for our guests to enjoy dinner and speeches. All the staff were extremely helpful and obliging. We had such a wonderful time at The Gables.
