Nathan and I knew Max’s was it when we drove into the venue and before we stepped out of the car. In a word. Phenomenal. The place is indescribably beautiful. The panoramic views to the vineyards, ceremony site and the restaurant itself. The staff go above and beyond and Max himself is so warm and accomodating. This was our dream venue

I could not have asked for a more amazing venue to have had our wedding at, and two more amazing people to have dealt with in the entire organisation process than Jess and Jayden. During the lead up to the event I was never worried about asking questions, and they were always so accommodating with any changes we wanted to make. Their communication was exceptional and they were always so prompt in responding to all of my emails or phone calls. The day was way more than anything we could have ever imagined. Everything was set up exactly how we wanted and the staff were brilliant. We were so well looked after during our photo shoot after the ceremony with wine and food being delivered to us. All of the staff during the evening were exceptional, and our guests were raving about how attentive they were to everyone’s needs. I am so glad we chose Max’s to host our wedding. We had the most incredible day and could not have asked for anything to be more perfect.

We had our ceremony overlooking the views of Red Hill Estate and Western Port Bay, it was stunning! Nothing was too much trouble for Maxs they were so accommodating and everything turned out beautifully. We had the gourmet BBQ option for our meal which was a nice relaxed way to enjoy they night. The food was fantastic and the staff were excellent.
