Our ceremony was at the Hunter Valley Gardens Chapel. They were great to work with & made my day a breeze! They took the stress out of the day & ensured everything ran smoothly. Lovely staff & breathe taking chapel.

Kylie and the team at Hunter Valley Gardens went above and beyond! Kylie did an absolutely amazing job assisting us with our planning and running the event on the day. All staff were extremely helpful and polite and all our guests commented on the food, service, decorations within the reception area and of course the stunning layout and condition of the gardens. We could not have asked for anything more and are so grateful for all the hard work the team put in just for us.

They were absolutely beyond accommodating to us and were absolutely lovely. They responded to every question that I had leading up to the wedding and really delivered on the day.

We had a really great time! When you book you get assigned a coordinator and all the details were passed on to our new organiser as our original one went on maternity leave. They set up everything perfectly and their communication is fantastic. Beautiful venue even though it was raining and stormy on the day. It was amazing!

Organising it was good, however on the night they kept annoying my bridesmaid to assist them as she used to work there, which was unprofessional. They also stuffed up my meal as I have dietary requirements and I ended up not being able to eat, they seemed confused by what could or couldn't go in it so I didn't want to take any risk.

Kylie was incredible. She gave us an amazing deal and she was happy to change out beer options for no extra cost and held our hand right up until we said I do. She made it so easy and she was so understanding offering advice.

Hunter Valley Garden was so beautiful to have the ceremony. and Kellie was very very professional. She was there every single step to make sure the ceremony was seamless

We had our reception in Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. The wedding team in Crowne Plaza was excellent. They helped us organise everything from the day we signed the contract with them. Jackie in Crowne Plaza was extremely helpful and she helped me so much with the last minute preparation. On the day, Marissa from the catering team handled everything for us. It was the best day of my life and we can't do with the help from these people

Amazing venue. Gorgeous photos. Staff so professional. Kylie is so relaxed and very thorough. She was excellent on the night. Food was ok so maybe needs to improve but the service was amazing x

Beautiful well maintained gardens. They were lovely to deal with and accommodated my elderly grandparents with golf cart. They let me decide a few hours before my wedding started to choose either the chapel or the rotunda due to the heat. They also provided maps to all my guests. Highly recommend.

Kylie the wedding planner helped us through everything. She made the whole process easier for us.

Thanks to Rachel at Zen for finding the most wonderful hair (Jess) and makeup (Sharon) for us for my sons wedding in November. Rachel could not have been more helpful, I would highly recommend this business if planning a wedding in the Pokolbin area.

My wedding co-ordinator had everything sorted so everything ran so smoothly. She ensured every detail was confirmed and the location is amazing! The waterfall was the best backdrop I could have imagined. Everything was perfect.
