We had a fantastic experience with this venue. We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding due to COVID but they were very accomodating. The Refectory is absolutely stunning and the staff were very professional and well organised. Everything went very smoothly and our guests raved about the food.

Werribee Park is such a beautiful location but Bursaria makes it outstanding. The food and service was amazing and we felt like royalty the entire day. Guests cannot stop talking about the food- saying it was the best they had ever had at a wedding. The venue is so beautiful itself. The enclaves in the room were perfect for our photo booth, bomboniere table and gift table and the space looked full without looking cramped and also perfectly laid out for everyone to move easily and comfortably around. Venue coordinator Hollie was an absolute stand out who made our day run smoothly and was so helpful and understanding throughout the entire process- she was such a blessing!! We are so glad we chose this venue!

Fantastic group of people to deal with, the food was incredible and the vibe was everything we imagined plus more. I never thought I would say this but the only bad thing was the dance floor wasn't big enough! It's a great space if you have around 140 guests and under. The venue itself is to die for and the staff were great. Big shout out to Bianca Weston and Vanessa Surace who went above and beyond for me.
