We just wanted to write to you both to say how incredibly thankful for all the hard work into making our wedding just a perfect success - we had, I reckon every guest come up to us and say how perfect the venue is, how amazing the food is and just overall it was one of the best weddings they have even been too. You both always answered any question we had and always made us feel so comfortable when visiting the venue. We both feel like the day was such a tremendous success due just how you guys have such a passion and desire to keep making the venue better and better - and of course we would like to thank all your families too who spend countless hours on the venue re doing / building new and exciting areas. We could not have pictures the day to go More perfectly

We wanted to send a huge thank you to you all for this weekend. Everyone had an amazing time and we couldn't have asked anything more from you. The food was outstanding, changing the ceremony location wasn't a problem at all, the guest house and scribbly cottage were loved by all and nothing was too much trouble for anyone

Donna and the team at Sylvan Glen are just amazing. Our wedding was everything we wanted, and true to what weddings should be about - a weekend surrounded by our loved ones, celebrating the start of our marriage.

Donna and Matt are both amazing and always available to answer phone calls and emails promptly and efficiently. Sylvan Glen is a credit to them both, extremely comfortable guest house provides comfortable onsite accommodation for family and friends making the wedding not only a day event but a truly wonderful Wedstival from Friday night to Sunday morning. The attention to detail in the guest house is second to none. The other onsite features like the salon, golf course and games area means there is no need to leave the place. The function room set up is fantastic and Donna and her staff make it look magical, again her attention to detail is flawless. The food yummy and just the right serving size, staff all friendly and efficient, nothing a bother at all. Our much anticipated wedding event could not have gone any better. Highly recommend and can't thank them enough.

Sylvan Glen Country Estate is defiantly the place to get married. A way to turn you wedding day into a wedding weekend! My husband Jack and I got married last December and we had the most magical weekend. Our family and friend's couldn't stop raving over how beautiful and well set up this estate is. Not only was our Ceremony and Reception all at the same place, a lot of our family and friends were able to stay on site with us so we could spend as much time together! Both Donna and Matt were absolutely amazing to deal with. I was able to email at any time about any questions I had and they always replied so quickly. They made our wedding weekend so stress free and had everything organised for us. We can't thank you enough! You made our wedding day so special!

Sylvan Glen was the perfect location for our 'weekend' wedding. The venue handled all the difficulties that came with the COVID pandemic in such an amazing way and I cannot speak highly enough about Donna and her team. One of the most common things our guests said to us on the night of our wedding was "Where did you find this place, its amazing". And it really is! One thing that this venue offers that sets it apart is the many, many small things that as a bride you stress about and not to mention spend soooo much money on. Things like toiletries for guests, table decorations, styling for the reception hall, baskets for flower girls, even robes for the bride and bridesmaids (as well as much more) they provide it all. We highly recommend Sylvan Glen. Its a magical place.

Sylvanglen was a beautiful venue. Donna and Matt have thought of everything. The lovely accomodation that my family and friends could stay at made the weekend even more special and fun! My guests haven't stopped talking about how good the wedding was!

The guesthouse and bridal suite were perfect. The 'all inclusive' element was great and took the hassle out of organising for 35 guests! The staff were really helpful and very efficient and accommodating. It was a really relaxed couple of days.

Donna and the team at Sylvan Glen were absolutely amazing! It was the only venue we looked at and we fell in love instantly! Donna and the team took away all the stress during the planning period and on our wedding day. They created a stunning reception room that exceeded our expectations. There was so much included in the package and we loved the secluded location. The accommodation and bridal suite was stunning and very comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone!

We loved Sylvan Glen Country House! It was perfect being able to spend the whole weekend with our friends and family on their property and everything we could possibly want was thought of. The team were great to work with and we would high recommend having a wedding here.

Just amazing- total professionals running a small business and juts lovely people. Went out of their way to ensure everything went perfectly!

Our package included everything - catering, bride and groom accommodation, golf cart hire, wedding coordinator, bus to pick up and drop off guests from Bundanoon, equipment hire, etc. Couldn't fault them. It was magical and relaxed. Nothing was too hard. The food for the entire weekend was included. Donna (the owner) was fantastic. The rooms were all decorated differently and the bridal suite was beautiful. Would have liked filtered water available through the weekend though as the water from the taps didn't taste great. I loved having my immediate family with me the entire weekend. The food was plentiful with canapes, entree, main and dessert buffet with tea and coffee on offer and alternate drop. The food was delicious and no one went home hungry. They even made the effort to bring a plate of canapes down to the bridal party whilst we took photos. Everything was great!
