The whole team at Caversham House was amazing and instrumental to making our day what it was. Such a beautiful venue. Couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else.

12 Sep 2020

We had our ceremony here and it was gorgeous! The day went so smoothly, the communication was great all the way through booking, planning and confirming and everyone we dealt with was just lovely. The grounds are beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our pics.

Caversham House is the perfect location for a wedding. We had our ceremony outdoors at the Hidden Gardens. Though it was summer, at 4pm we had the perfect weather with its large canopy of trees providing shade and a river at the back for views and we had this lovely breeze coming by. The coordinators on that day were so helpful in helping myself the bride and my bridesmaid time our walking down the aisle. The reception dinner went smoothly and food was excellent - we opted for the premium buffet and the seafood entree was amazing. In fact all the food including desserts were amazing and 2 weeks after we still have guests commenting on the food they had there. We also realise we didn’t need a photobooth on site as the guests ended up preferring to walk around the venue which so picturesque in itself and were happy snapping pictures on the grounds by themselves. Would highly recommend Caversham House for your wedding venue - no where could be as perfect as it was.

Had an amazing ceremony and reception at Caversham House! Food was AMAZING and our guests are still raving about it over a week later. Amber was our coordinator on the day and even helped me and the girls take pictures when I got out of the car before walking down the isle. :) Amber helped me with a TV for a special video I put together for my now husband with videos of all his family and friends from over east ! So accommodating and amazing

My husband and I chose Caversham House the second we walked into the venue, it was exactly what we were looking for. Martina was an absolute pleasure, she was always accommodating through the 4 year planning process, and was readily available to answer any questions no matter how big, small or silly. We unfortunately had the devastating news the day before our wedding that COVID restrictions had come into effect, but luckily we were still able to go ahead with a few minor adjustments, of which Martina handled beautifully. The entire experience with Martina and Caversham House was fantastic, and we cannot thank them enough.

We had our ceremony at Caversham house. Beautiful and well maintained gardens, gave out pictures a timeless feel. They have a lot of rules but aslong as you comply shouldn’t be an issue at all.

A stunning venue - outstanding grounds and high-quality food. The staff were very friendly and professional all the way. Some of the "extras" were rather over priced but we did not regret our choice.

17 Nov 2019

Beautiful venue, they were very accommodating even to our late planning. Everything was where it needed to be at the time it needed to be there.

5 Oct 2019

I am so glad we made our budget stretch and we chose Caversham House for our wedding venue. The ceremony and whole evening ran so smoothly without a single hiccup, it was just perfect. We also received so many compliments from our guests regarding the food (the pork belly entree was absolutely amazing), the attentive waiters and the beautiful scenery.
