We would highly recommend Poet's Lane, not only for the obvious reason it's such a gorgeous venue with stunning gardens, but the staff, the package deal, the attention to detail with planning and guidance throughout the entire process, and finally the onsite accommodation. The right venue makes a world of difference to the overall experience on our big day to us, our families and friends. Our wedding day turned out cold and wet, the team at Poet's successfully moved our outdoor garden wedding into the equally beautiful indoor chapel with short notice. It was the perfect choice as our day, photos and video turned out spectacularly.
Thanks for your kind wordsAudrey, it was so lovely being part of your special day!
Poet's Lane was my dream wedding venue since I was a little girl. Thanks to the dedication, kindness, talent and love of Tessa and the team our wedding truly emulated our friendship, marriage and future. I couldn't imagine a more perfect venue. Thank you for making my dreams a reality!!
Thanks Hannah, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and sharing your special day with you
- beautiful venue and great wedding coordinators, however:
-Watch out for the sound system & music set up-had issues with it the whole time.
-the ‘DJ’ on the night doubled as a wait staff - was not always in the DJ booth. Had issues when tried to get music louder
-Entree and mains were fabulous
-dessert buffet was average
-don’t expect even half an hour to be added to the time you can spend at the venue without paying an extra $600 per half hour...but what you end up paying for as the base package feels rushed (we even added on an extra hour-still rushed!)
-do go above and beyond to help out if they can
-we only had 60 guests but paid for 80, because of their 80 guest minimum contract. Not their problem, but also realise this fully before you book and sign a contract.
Poet's Lane is breathtakingly beautiful! From the first time we inspected the venue for our spring wedding, my husband and I fell in love with it. The beautiful stained glass windows, the high ceilings in the Chapel simply took our breath away. The garden gazebo was an absolutely beautiful area for our photographs. Our reception was so magical. The lights, the decor, the flowers were absolutely stunning. The food! Oh my gosh, the food! We had the pleasure of being able to sample our menu at a food tasting at Poet's Lane and we must say the food was delicious. Chef Jarrod's food on our wedding day was beyond amazing, absolutely delicious and plentiful! our guests especially loved our dessert buffet!! The staff at Poet's Lane have been very helpful from the day we enquired in regards to the venue. Courtney, Tess, Fiona, Cherie , Gracie thank you for all your help along the way, you all made it such an easy process. Last but not least, Peta!!! We love you!! Thank you so much for taking all the trouble to have those endless conversations, emails and requests from us to make our day happen. You made the whole process so easy which made us feel less anxious and at home! You did an absolutely amazing job of coordinating and being MC for our big day, all while making sure the day went off without a hitch. We truly are so grateful that you were a part of our big day and we cannot thank you enough for truly delivering a magical day for us! Rukshana & Brian Coignet
