Werribee Zoo is great venue for photos & entertaining guests. Our day was extremely hot so the venue was opened up earlier which was lovely. Our guests raved about the food - plenty of it & it was tasty! And excellent staff service (even though we had to set up our own decorations including the ceremony ones). The lady on the day running it was brilliant - however, the lack of communication between werribee staff & the company who run the business wasn’t great. Be sure to read the fine print - I’d recommend an earlier wedding so there’s time for good photos & guests to explore the zoo. Also the giraffe photo experience is a must ;)
