Lauriston house went above and beyond to meet everything we hoped for on our reception night. The food was excellent, the service was great, and the team were very professional. Even with all the logistics having to change due to COVID, the team went above and beyond to achieve what I wanted within the limitations of restrictions.

The staff are friendly and very professional. We had no issues all night and if there were any, we weren't aware because the staff did a fantastic job. Everything was well organised and set up and the MC Paul did an amazing job of easing the tension and making sure things went to time all night. I cannot recommend this place enough. If I could I would give it 6/5 stars.

Victoria and the team were essential in making our wedding the incredible event it was. From the moment we stepped into that beautiful single venue, we were greeted like family. All of our guests raved about the food (pork roast and lamb) and how great it was to have no other weddings around us. It meant we could have as much noisy Taiko drumming as we wanted. Lauriston helped coordinate our vendors for us, including fireworks that made our entrance spectacular and providing a free getaway car. Even when things went awry, Victoria went out of her way to make sure the day went off perfect. We used our own MC, but the House DJ played everything we requested even when the songs were weird JPOP tracks. The venue also includes centerpieces and chairs, and free ceremony. For value plus a stress free, fun wedding, Lauriston was utterly perfect.

The food and service was good. The cake was delicious. Thankyou so much. The reception is very pretty. I love a nice little castle venue.

6 Dec 2019

Very organised. It was an amazing experience and my guests loved it as well. There’s not enough words to describe how amazing their team is. All the items we have talked about during the meetings were perfectly executed and they are always one call away.

Everything was really great, and had a couple meetings with them. Everything worked out really well and the food was delicious.

Lauriston House was an absolutely amazing venue! We got married on the 14th of September 2019 and it was a spectacular wedding. From the moment we stepped in the venue, we loved the gardens and interior design of the venue, it had a close and intimate feel and catered perfectly for our number of 100 people. Victoria and Paul were really accommodating with their services all the way through and it was a great personalised service that you wouldn't receive at other venues. Our guests were really surprised and said our wedding was wonderful and unique. From the food to the table service and organization, Everyone had a great time, so thank you Lauriston House. Paul has got to be the best MC we’ve ever witnessed at any wedding and we were so happy to have him not only help us plan the running schedule, but be our entertaining MC all night. He is such a great guy even on a personal level and we were so happy to have him entertain our guests and make them laugh. So our recommendation is to most definitely book with Lauriston House, you won’t be disappointed.

l had my reception at Lauriston House in April 2017. You can call me a 'laid back sort of bride' . Lauriston House helped me with all my suplliers including cake, photographer ect and styling of the room. They even gave me checklists and my own FREE wedding organiser. Also To future brides: You have to send parking map! there is parking its across the road from Lauriston House! Very convenient for my guests. The day itself ran smoothly, the MC paul was there for me and entertained my guests. My event planner chris also stayed to the end of the night. I really did feel like a princess. My guests were very happy with the wait staff and are still raving how tasty the food is. I highly recommend Lauriston House. Service is Fantastic and stress FREE!
