We loved the venue for our friends and family - the accomodation on site was amazing for our guests :) we had a Lunch wedding and it was stunning !!! The venue worked with our suppliers and our wedding coordinator seemlessly and their supplier list was also very helpful.

Peppers Craigieburn was nothing short of exceptional. Carrie, Jackie and the staff at Peppers were so accomodating and communicative, and nothing was a hassle when it came to making our special day exactly what we dreamed it could be. The staff were so supportive of each other in their vision of bringing out the best for our big day. We never once felt stressed, because the team at Peppers had everything covered. The grounds and hotel were beautiful and the guests absolutely loved our cosy winter garden wedding.

We had our reception and ceremony at Peppers. The event staff were very accommodating. They did have a wet weather contingency plan ready. We originally had lawn games planned but as soon as it started bucketing down they started ushering our guests inside for us. The food was good. When they offered alcohol and I said I didn't drink, they simply moved on without offering an alternative but that's my only complaint! Everything else ran smoothly

The venue itself is really beautiful. The food was great but the service was dreadful. The events planner was really late to reply and even in person she didn't seem to make much effort. On the wedding night I don't recall ever being offered a drink or being checked on by the staff. My DJ actually checked up on me instead. Included in our package we were supposed to find champagne & a cheese platter up at our room but it was not there on the night. Unfortunate as the food and the venue was stunning.

Peppers Craigieburn has so much old charm We loved the "old" look about it and the beautiful gardens that surround it. The staff were very accommodating however, there was a slight problem with accommodation as some of the rooms that were booked under our allotment had been released to the public without our knowledge. Overall though that was the only hiccup we had.

Peppers Craigieburn were amazing I am so glad I chose to have my wedding there.

The staff were accommodating, holding multiple rooms for guest to purchase for the night of our wedding. They also allowed us to use one of their functions rooms the following morning for breakfast and my sons first birthday.

Venue is breathtaking and staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Our way went perfect with no hassles thanks to the excellent staff and planners. We had 105 guests and all were very impressed. 100% recommend.

Peppers Craigieburn was beautiful and our wedding went off without a hitch. Unfortunately there was a couple of changes of wedding coordinator, which lead to some miscommunication. On the whole, staff were excellent and supportive, and we got a lot included in our package, so was well worth the money!

25 Mar 2016

Peppers Craigieburn was a beautiful venue for us to celebrate with our guests, and everyone had a great time relaxing and exploring over the weekend. I can't wait to go back myself, but I know many family and friends are planning to, as well!

Peppers Craigieburn staff were so great assisting when my wedding got rained out! The gardens are beautiful and there are plenty of locations for photos. The food was amazing, our guests raved about it! A really good package that made for a great night.
