The team at the Woolshed were incredible from our first email! Alysha was kind, genuine and so helpful. She provided lots of guidance, clear expectations and made our day run so so smoothly!! The food was INCREDIBLE, the staff are lovely and the feel of the whole venue is perfect. Alysha and the team at The Woolshed made us feel like we were a priority, and were all so helpful with all our questions along the way. We wish we could do it all again, and wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else!!

Thank you for your kind word Lucy! It was an absolute pleasure working with Will and yourself!

November 2023

!From the beginning, working with the Spun team was easy. We delt specifically with Alysha on our wedding from start to finish, and she was an absolute delight. Alysha was super helpful and put our minds at ease whenever we had questions and was extremely accommodating when we had special requests or changes. Our wedding was the third occasion in which Spun Catering had been used at family events, and it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious, and team on the night worked like a well-oiled machine. Our wedding venue was the first catering job the team had done at the site we choose, so Alysha drove an hour out specially to visit; checking out the kitchen, the grounds and was in direct contact with the site coordinator – taking any extra added stresses off us – a blessing and exactly what you want from a professional caterer. Would highly

We cannot fault our experience with the Woolshed. Alysha the lovely event coordinator has been super helpful & promptly answered all my many questions. The venue is stunning, and didn't require much extra to make it our dream wedding venue (plus they provided a bunch of useful things like easels, lots of candles, table numbers, wishing well, table runners). The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious!! We loved our experience and highly recommend!

The Woolshed was an absolutely incredible wedding venue. The staff were so easy to work with on the lead up to the day, especially Alysha, who was always happy to accomodate our requests or answer any questions we had. On our wedding night itself, the staff were incredible and the food was amazing- we had so many compliments. The venue itself is stunning too. We would not hesitate to recommend the Woolshed to anyone seeking a rustic wedding venue.

My husband and I were very grateful for several factors of the experience with the Woolshed – their prompt communication, clear timeline and requests for information, flexibility with package details and vendors, kind and personable interactions. With really quite luxurious food and decor, we enjoyed being able to 'spoil' our guests without having to go to extra effort ourselves! Guests particularly loved the rustic look and the warmth of the main space, the grazing table to begin (one guest thought it was the main meal and was concerned that everyone was eating without the bride and groom) and the accessibility with parking. Thanks for hosting us – we look forward to having an anniversary coffee at the cafe!

The Woolshed

Hi Marlee! Thank you for your kind words we very much appreciate it! It was a pleasure seeing your wedding come to life, we are glad to hear we assisted with making the planning process smooth and clear. Looking forward to seeing you for that anniversary coffee, we'll make sure it's on the house :)

What should the timeline be for a cocktail only reception. The party will be 4 hours

We are having a cocktail reception at a wine bar in Las Vegas and would like to get a timeline of events. Reception is from 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM, Hors d'oeuvres and cocktails will be served, along with cake and champagne for the toast. Help

The Woolshed

At The Woolshed we offer our wedding couples a 3-4 hour canape service. We love the idea of including a grazing table at the beginning of the wedding to help fill up your guests. Generally once the canapes slow up and finish it will leave 1 - 1 1/2 hrs of dancing.
