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.

I cannot say enough good things about the Refectory! It was the perfect venue: the right amount of space, modern and newly renovated, the food was exceptional! Shelley and her team were the perfect event managers, I cannot thank them enough! Everything was thought of and looked after :D

Bursaria really delivered a great wedding package; the food and service was terrific and the venue was gorgeous, with our flowers. Our event manager was a pleasure to deal with and it was easy to organise. We had a beautiful day and it was so convenient for our guests with the ceremony site and reception all in one place. The Mansion Hotel being a few steps away was a huge bonus, as well. Highly recommended.

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!

Amazing location for our reception, right next to numerous ceremony site options in the scenic Werribee Park. The Refectory was a cosy, well-lit space (lighting changing throughout the night depending on mood!) that fit in our dancefloor, DJ, photobooth, guest tables, and everyone loved it! Thank you!

Bursaria were absolutely the best. We were married at Abbotsford Convent in March this year and the team at Bursaria looked after every aspect of our special day and we had absolutely no worries! I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Everything went well from the start to the end, we cant thank the team from Bursaria enough for all their help and service at the reception. Special mention to Shelley - she is very prompt and paid a lot of attention to detail. She made sure she got back to me with every question we had and her presence on the actual day made me feel so relaxed because i know i could count on her. Highly recommend the Bursaria team. The venue speaks for itself - simply amazing.

Everyone absolutely loved the food served at our wedding.. Someone who doesn't like lamb went back for seconds... It was smooth service and from entree through to the gorgeous desserts ( particularly the mini ice creams )

Amazing Venue, they turned the day from a rainy mess to a beautiful indoors wedding (and managed to move everything outside for the beautiful ceremony between storms) very appreciative. incredible job!

12 Mar 2016

They were great, we had a cocktail wedding. They put out extra food and were helpful with giving advise with what to order.

5 Mar 2016

Amazing food and drinks! So thoughtful and dynamic with changes to the food and drinks. Simple additions without issue and the final result was just brilliant. Modern food in a very impressive display. And the desserts were just awesome!!!!

A seriously impressive venue. Part of the Werribee Mansion complex, the room run by Bursaria is a beautiful modern space. Different table combinations available meant we could make it really individual. The help and service we received from them was incredible.
