“Loved Centennial. The space is amazing, large enough to feel lush but earthy enough to feel intimate. The staff know their stuff and put any worries to ease. Getting married in Covid changed a few things, but we really worked to make it as special as possible within the regulations; the team was both professional but accommodating. The food was delicious, service on point, wine was perfect, the setting was divine. We had a winter wedding, so to have the fireplace on the inside was beautiful!” - Amy G.

“We had our reception at Centennial Vineyards, and our events coordinator was amazing and beyond helpful! We were very lucky to be able to have her help. The set-up was all very easy, and we didn't need a lot of decorations for the venue. It's all very personal, and the chef came out to talk with us, and with the vineyard, we were able to do wine tastings with them as well. All the staff were very happy and friendly on the night, and everything just ran so smoothly!” - Lucinda M.

A fantastic venue with wonderful staff who accommodated everything we asked for and also the weather which did not cooperate on our wedding day! Thanks so much to Rebecca and the staff

What can I say about Centennial Vineyards...? Rebecca is AMAZING!!! She is so easy to deal with, super easy-going, and dealt with all of my questions and concerns whilst aiming to arrange a wedding during a global pandemic... The team were extremely flexible with us in the lead up to our big day, as we didn't know if we would be able to have a wedding due to border restrictions. On the day, the team went above and beyond. They were so professional and friendly. The food was divine, the wines delicious (obviously), and the service top notch. Rebecca made me feel so at ease, and helped calm me down before I walked down the aisle. Thank you Centennial and Rebecca - for making all of our wedding dreams come true!

What an amazing venue and even better staff! We loved every second of our involvement with Centennial Vineyards and their amazing event coordinator Rebecca. We had a tough time organising things in the midst of this pandemic, but we couldn't be happier with the communication, flexibility and overall reassurance the venue gave us throughout the whole experience. On the day, everything went smoothly, the food was amazing and we were in the great hands of Garth who looked after us the whole day and night. Would highly recommend this venue for not only the great food, but the amazing scenery and lovely staff!

My husband and I had our beautiful Bowral wedding at Centennial Vineyards restaurant and we cannot praise enough. The venue and staff were fantastic and many of our guests said the food was the best they've been served at a wedding. If you're looking to get married in the Southern Highlands, we highly recommend this stunning venue.

Centennial Vineyards was a beautiful venue for our wedding. The food was beautiful too. All of our guests were very happy. Our contact allocated to us for the day was really amazing. She was very organised. The pack up afterwards was great as well as they made it very easy for us. Mel and Katrina from Centennial Vineyards helped us with the schedule of the day and were very accommodating. 5 stars!

Centennial was definitely the perfect venue for our magical winter wedding. The gardens overlooking the vineyard while the sun was setting created the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. The food was immaculate and the experience of creating our own menu was extra special. Highly recommended!
